  1. Thank you for sharing Catherine. This is such a beautiful and moving service. Knowing that our ancestors who came here to fish are remembered and honored is a testament to the caring people in this community. My family came here in the 1800’s to fish from Nova Scotia. Thanks to the committee that continues this beautiful tradition.
