Friday, Oct 13 8th Annual Storytelling Dinner

:                             "Fishing, a Family Affair"

           Commercial Fishing along the North Shore was a business that engaged the entire family.  From the solitary fisherman who built his boat and rowed out to set and pick nets, to his wife who met the boat on its return and winched it up the slide. to the children who helped to care for the nets and pack the fish, every family member worked.  During the herring runs, everyone cleaned fish.  At this dinner we will hear stories about the lives and work of all the family members while enjoying a traditional Scandinavian dinner.

                      with Stuart Sivertson, Dale Tormondsen, and

                               Roberta and Rich Sve
