Upcoming Events

The Wolfe Island Historical Society and the Frontenac Heritage Foundation are co-hosting an event to celebrate the publication of a book by Maureen Dunphy.  The book is called “Great Lakes Island Escapes – Ferries and Bridges to Adventure”. See attachment for more details.

Come hear Maureen speak about the book, and bring a friend!

The event is being held at the United Church Hall on Victoria Street, Wolfe Island, on Tuesday, August 30th 7:30 p.m.

Ferries leave from the Kingston ferry terminal at the foot of Barrack Street on the hour (so 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.), and the ferry lands at the foot of Centre Street on the Island. Victoria Street is two streets to the left (east), and is within walking distance.  (If you wish to take your vehicle, you may need to be there 45 minutes early to be sure to get your vehicle on.)

If you have any questions, call S. Bailey at 343-363-1901.
