Lonely cari­bou causes stir in Cavendish

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

An un­usual vis­i­tor had res­i­dents of Cavendish talk­ing last week. A lone cari­bou was in the area, try­ing to make friends with lo­cal live­stock. An­i­mal lover Denise Critch got up close and per­sonal with the an­i­mal.

The Heart’s Con­tent Cable Sta­tion held an art work­shop last month fo­cus­ing on tra­di­tional New­found­land and Labrador floor-mat mak­ing. Jac­quey Ryan, a well-known multimedia artist, was the in­struc­tor. The eight par­tic­i­pants de­signed, painted & cre­ated floor mats as they did in in this prov­ince in the 1800s. The work­shop was held in com­mem­o­ra­tion of Pindikowski, the Pol­ish painter who, in 1879, taught art to the wives and chil­dren of the com­pany’s em­ploy­ees.
