Community Spotlight: Don Blackmore
Learning about John Black, The Fish Killer
Today we had a special guest at dinner, Don Blackmore, the grandson of Captain John H. Blackmore, also known as John Black The Fish Killer off the coast of Labrador! Don shared his memories of the fishery, his first experience as a young boy on a dregger and growing up with a famous grandfather that constructed many of the large ships of Newfoundland, including The Newfoundlander and The Jon H. Blackmore. It was a pleasure to have such an important guest dine with us, and we are looking forward to seeing him again on site, as he promised to visit again, when we’re into construction. With the help of his knowledge and expertise we’re bound to build something great!
