On Thursday, July 18th, 2019, the Pouch Cove Heritage Society and Heritage NL co-hosted a storytelling and memory sharing session at the Anglican Church Hall, Pouch Cove. The topic was the old Society of United Fishermen (SUF) hall, which the Pouch Cove Heritage Society is in the early process of restoring. Folklorist Dale Jarvis moderated a two part discussion on the history of the SUF, the memories of former members, stories about dances, parades, and funerals, and the role the SUF played in the community. This podcast shares some of those stories, to give you a taste of what was shared that night.
The Living Heritage Podcast is about people who are engaged in the heritage and culture sector, from museum professionals and archivists, to tradition bearers and craftspeople - all those who keep history alive at the community level. The show is a partnership between HeritageNL and CHMR Radio. Theme music is Rythme Gitan by Latché Swing.
