This past weekend 13 students participated in a canoe building demonstration at the 78th Annual Eastern Maine Sportsman’s show at the University of Maine in Orono. Students worked on the cedar strip canoe, sold raffle tickets, and interacted with the vendors in attendance. It was a very positive experience. Mr. Clark and Mr. Guay from Building Trades, Mr. D and Mr. Hughes from Pre-Tech, and Mr. Small from the hands-on classroom at DRHS all participated with the students. As a result of the great team work and interactive nature of the project, the group was awarded the ribbon for the Best Active Exhibitor at this years show. The ribbon is on display at the Pre-Tech area at the old mill. Congrats to everyone who participated and assisted. OH…we have been invited to participate again next year!!
