For those folks fortunate enough to have grown up on the water, thoughts of summers spent ‘messing about in boats’ bring back some pretty wonderful memories.
And it’s just those warm thoughts that have our gang here at The Dory Shop so stoked as we begin building a big Fortune Bay sailing dory for the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation Summer Camp at Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.
As avid Tim’s coffee drinkers, we’re all aware of the great work that is done at Tim Horton’s Camps across the country. For those of you who don’t know, the Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to providing a fun-filled camp environment for children from economically disadvantaged homes. Year-round, local children are selected from each of the communities in which a Tim Horton’s restaurant operates, giving thousands of children the opportunity to attend one of the organization’s six camps.
In the case of the camp at Tatamagouche, the program emphasizes the experience of “Maritime living and heritage.” So the thought of all those enthusiastic young campers having a blast sailing and rowing in an authentic Lunenburg dory this summer, and for summers to come, well, let’s just say it’s a real kick! Better than a large double-double!Dory PlugThe Dory ShopLunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canadainfo@doryshop.com
