Okay, so we all know Charlie Pearcey, and the beautiful little red twinestore on Outer Battery that he keeps like a personal inshore fishery museum. Last Wednesday, Charlie was officially recognised as a tradition bearer by the Province. He was honoured as a keeper of inshore fishery knowledge, for the collection of fishery artifacts in the twinestore, and for his efforts to preserve this knowledge and share it with the many visitors he welcomes to his Outer Batterty "museum". He is one of three provincial tradition bearers currently so honoured.
Please join us in congratulating Charlie - drop in and say so when you see his door open. It is rumoured that there may be a bit of a celebration bash at the twinestore on the 13th of December, so if you happen to be near there that evening you might get a glimpse of the spiffy plaque that they presented to him. Now if he can only find any room to put it on the wall of the place...
Here's the website:

Oh No! There's a mistake in the Calendar!
A sharp-eyed purchaser has brought to our attention that there's a mistake in the calendar. If you look at the month of April, you'll notice that the dates are the same as the month of March. This fact escaped all of us. We used a computer template to produce the calendar, and assumed it would be accurate.
Please accept our abject apologies. Even though April often mimics March in st. Johns, we honestly didn't intend to play an April Fool's joke on everyone! As soon as the calendar producer returns from holidays, we will make available on this site a corrected April calendar page with the proper fonts, which can be printed and glued over the existing one.
Our organization is small, we spend funds on projects like local oral histories and benches for visitors, and we can't afford to have the calendars reprinted and replaced. We hope you will bear with us, and appreciate the calendar as being even more unique. If you would like to return the calendar for a refund, please contact us through this site and we'll arrange to meet you.
