My Summer Work Term 2019!

I've had an exciting summer working for the Heritage Foundation and the Craft Council of NL! I have worked on 2 major projects- the 275 Duckworth Report and our Craft at Risk project. We held a 275 Duckworth Reunion at the building to meet past workers, and 2 Craft at Risk public sessions at the Anna Templeton Center and the Wooden Boat Museum in Winterton to chat about crafts in the province.

Along with this, I got the chance to attend events and outings including Sheep Shearing in Clarkes Beach, Heritage Craft Show-And-Tell in Spaniard's Bay, Tors Cove to visit Running the Goat print shop, Brigus to visit Kent Cottage at Landfall, and a Cemetery Transcription Workshop at St. Francis Assisi Cemetery in Outer Cove. I also got to visit communities such as Hearts Content and New Perlican!

Although I am sad that my work term is coming to an end, my time here has been amazing! I have met some great people and have learned so much. I appreciate all the great help and support from everyone along the way!

Next, I will be continuing my last year of studies at MUN. Im excited to see whats in store for the future!

Bye for now! -Rachael Green
