We have an exciting concert and fundraiser coming up!
It’s a good old-fashioned variety show (but with fresh new content).
If you’re looking for a night of dance and song, come on out! Also, if you are looking for some rare issues of Them Days, this is your chance to complete your collection. We will have some for sale!
The long-awaited (sorry!) Vol. 41, No. 4 is in local stores and local mailboxes now. It should be arriving any day now for anyone who lives elsewhere. Also, of course, available in our online store.
An evening with Dave Paddon and Richard Neville always proves to be a good time, so come on out! You’re missing out if you don’t!
Last week, Pei started working at Them Days again. He recently graduated from his Master of Folklore program at Memorial, which coincided nicely with our receiving a grant from Library and Archives Canada’s Documentary Heritage Communities Program. We’re starting Phase II of the Labrador Identification and Dissemination Initiative, more commonly known as #IDThemDays, and Pei is going to be the Project Researcher for a whole year! You can imagine how excited I am. Since I started at Them Days almost 10 years ago (!!!), one of my goals has been to get the Miscellaneous section of our negative collection straightened out. Terra got the project off to a great start in 2016, but we only had enough money to keep her on for a few months. Now Pei will be building on what she’s accomplished. So expect some posts with archival photos soon! (And if you’re nearby, some tea-and-photo events too!)
Pei did a great job helping out with the Grub issue just before I went on maternity leave, and I know he’ll do a great job in this new position too! Welcome back, Pei!
We’re looking for someone to be an Archive Technician/Administrator!
Apply if you’re interested!
Believe me when I say this NEVER HAPPENS. Our Treasurer has approved a FLASH SALE on our website. Special issues (like the Nunatsiavut issue, above) are up to 50% off!!!!! PLUS you can use a 10% off coupon (code: INVENTORY) for everything else!!!!
Move quickly, because it’s only on until Tuesday at 8:30 am Labrador Time (Atlantic time) when we get back to work after the long weekend!!!
The latest issue is out in mailboxes (at least in Labrador, so far. Those of you a little further afield will have to wait a few more days for it to show up.) and on retailers’ shelves!
Sorry for the bit of a delay with this issue. As you know if you read regularly, I had a serious case of pneumonia and was off work for a bit, and then the main computer bit the dust! (It was eight years old, so I’m excited to get a new one that will be nice and speedy and full of empty space!)
But we’re all back on track now, and working hard to finish the Grub cookbook before the holidays, and also the December issue. Our calendar will be out very shortly as well.
