If you tuned into CBC Radio’s Labrador Morning program today around 8:20 am, you would have heard me talking about Culture Days here at Them Days.
First, our annual Culture Days dress-up-and-eat, open house-style event is again on Saturday from 10 – 2. This year, we’re doing it a bit differently, adding fish and brewis to the menu, and having musicians instead of storytellers.
And along the lines of the music, this year we’re hosting a music-themed scavenger hunt! From today (Friday, September 27) to Sunday, October 6, you can drive along Hamilton River Road and find signs featuring Labrador song lyrics. Find as many as you can, name the songs the lyrics are from, and write it in your official Name That Labrador Tune passport. You can pick up your passport from Hamilton Drugs (find it at the lotto counter), from us at Them Days (pick one up while you’re here on Saturday!) or download it and print it right from our website! When you’re done, drop off your passport either at Hamilton Drugs (again, at the lotto counter) or here at Them Days, and you could win a prize! We’ve got a few prizes, the top one being a year-long subscription to Them Days magazine! (Use it for yourself, or give it to a friend…hey, you might be able to cross a name off your Christmas gift list!)
If you’re elsewhere in Labrador, but you still want to play, tune into CBC radio and listen to Labrador Morning. They’ll be reading some of the lyrics featured on the billboards around here. Then you can call or write in with your answers, and you’ll be eligible to win a daily prize or the big prize at the end! (A Labrador song book). The radio contest started today and will go until next Friday.
So there’s tons of stuff on the go around here–get out and participate!
PS – it’s not Culture Days, but don’t forget about our SS Kyle-themed fundraiser coming up next Saturday!!
