2023 Moyie Calendar and 125th Year Celebrations

The SS Moyie was launched in Nelson on October 22nd in 1898 and the Kootenay Lake Historical Society in Kaslo is excited to announce that the ship will be 125 in 2023. The Society is planning events throughout the year to celebrate this milestone.

2022 has been a busy year of rehabilitation work on the ship including refurbishment of her decks and railings to remove any rotten wood and her exterior is being painted. The work is continuing, but by spring she will be sparkling for her important celebration. Major stabilization and restoration work was completed 30 years ago to restore her to the late 1920s and the present work will ensure she will be preserved for future generations.

The Society has published a calendar for 2023 to celebrate the 125th which through the year tells the history of the ship. She was an important means of transport of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s BC Lake and River Service on Kootenay Lake before roads were built. The calendar is available at The Store at Cooper Creek, Figments, Kaslo, J. B. Fletcher Store, Ainsworth, the Kaslo Craft Fair Dec 3rd and other points around Kootenay Lake where she would have stopped when providing passenger and freight service for 59 years. Retiring in 1957, she is now dry-docked beside Kootenay Lake in Kaslo and will be welcoming visitors from May to October in 2023.
