My name is Jenna Bridges, and I’m the newest member of the Them Days Team! My group arrived in Goose Bay from Chicoutimi, QC on April 14th, and I love it here already! It is so beautiful! But we’ll get into all that gushy stuff later.
For now, let me tell ya’ll a little bit about myself. I come from a little town called Acme which is about thirty minutes North-East of Calgary. Now, I know what your thinking when you hear the word “Acme.” The Road Runner and The Coyotte from Warner Bros, right? Yeah, I’m used to it. That’s what everyone says. I don’t know what else to say about Acme, other than the fact that it is a VERY small town, consisting of about 500 people. We don’t have any traffic lights, and the most exciting/popular place is The Corner Store, which is our only convenience store. Like I said, VERY small! It’s literally one of those blink-and-you-miss-it kind of towns. But, believe it or not, I really miss Acme. I should probably mention that I technically don’t live IN Acme. I actually live on an acreage about five minutes west of Acme.
This brings us to my family. I am the youngest of ten children. But, before you faint from disbelief, I have to tell you….four of us (yes, myself included) were adopted. So yeah, there are just a few of us floating around…..
But now I’m going to get back to Katimavik business….Before I mentioned that my group arrived here in Goose Bay, Lab on Wednesday, Arpil 14th, 2010. (Sorry I’m a little specific….) Anyway…I fell in love with this place the minute I saw it through the window of the plane! When my Mom found out I was coming to Labrador, she was all like, “Oh Jenna! Your so lucky! You’d better take lots of pictures! When you get there, you’ll see what I mean!” Boy, do I ever know what she meant! If I didn’t love Alberta so much, I probably wouldn’t want to leave! Weve already volunteered at The Friendship, helping out with a supper. I forget what it was for, exactly…..But it was fun! And we met people, which I love!
Anywho….now is the time I show you some pictures of my group and what we’ve done in Goose Bay thus far…So here we go!!
So yeah…..These are just a few of the things we have done so far…We did a scavenger hunt to get to know the community better, we had a campfire at Muskrat Falls, we gutted fish…..and more fond memories to come!!
Anyway..I really can’t think of anything else to say at this time, but bear in mind, I will DEFINITLEY be keeping you guys posted on what is happening here in Goose Bay!! Until then…TOODLES!!!
