Giv­ing thanks at The Shed

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

Thanks­giv­ing week­end in Bay Roberts was cel­e­brated in a new way this year. Post-Trop­i­cal Storm Les­lie tore the roof off the Red Fish­er­men’s Shed on the Shore­line Her­itage Trail, which had been used for “Tou­tons and Tunes” and other events over the sum­mer.

Town em­ploy­ees com­pletely re­paired the shed so that it was ready for two events dur­ing the long week­end Oct. 6-8.

On the af­ter­noon of Oct. 7, the reg­u­lar fall Tou­tons and Tunes took place. Par­tic­i­pants were guided by Melissa Dawe on a hike from Crane’s Hill, ar­riv­ing at the Red Shed where Erica Bad­cock demon­strated how to make and cook tou­tons. Ev­ery­one then en­joyed the cooked tou­tons while list­ing to mu­sic pro­vided by Melissa Dawe, Vic­to­ria Smith, and guest Paul Drover.

On Oct. 8, Thanks­giv­ing Sun­rise be­gan at 7 a.m. with a walk from Crane’s Hill guided by San­dra Roach of the Bay Roberts Cul­tural Foun­da­tion. Af­ter the walk, ev­ery­one gath­ered at the Red Shed for a short ser­vice of Thanks­giv­ing. Af­ter the ser­vice, ev­ery­one was treated to a break­fast do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses.
