The Spirit of Labrador

The Aurora (Labrador City) - - News - BY MIKE POWER

As sum­mer slowly turned to fall, peo­ple in Labrador West were treated to a num­ber of spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

Gate­way Labrador pre­sented Spirit of Labrador, a cul­tural cel­e­bra­tion of Labrador which re­ceived as­sis­tance from Her­itage Canada. Tracy West, chair of Gate­way Labrador, said they are grate­ful to MP Yvonne Jones and her of­fice for their help in mak­ing spirit of Labrador a suc­cess.

Events in­cluded an art ex­hi­bi­tion, per­for­mances by mu­si­cians Gary and Jen­nifer Mitchell, and a show by Beni Malone and Su­san Jarvis.

“Su­san Jarvis and Beni Malone not only en­ter­tained many peo­ple, they also vis­ited AP Low Pri­mary School to teach stu­dents how to jug­gle, plate spin and hula hoop,” Sarah Hal­l­i­day, Gate­way Labrador tourism of­fi­cer, told the Aurora.

Other ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded Karen Sim­monds demon­strat­ing how to make beaded ear­rings, Marty Byrne show­ing how to make pot­tery, a geo­caching event, and Larry Jenk­ins of­fer­ing a photo work­shop.

West said events were wellat­tended and a great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for many peo­ple.
