Skills Link Project

Happy New Year! The skills Link Project is almost complete and our participants are having great success with their individual job placements. Our 9 participants are placed throughout various businesses in Kings County and have been working hard to accomplish their goals as valued employees. You may have seen them at MacDonald’s Rite Stop, Eastern Kings Sportsplex, Rollo Bay Holdings, Sobeys, Pizza Delight, Garden Isle Farms and Bohemian Finding’s. These young men, have taken the skills learned and developed in our 8 week in class workshop and transferred those skills into the workforce. We have had many success stories over the past 3 months and I am sure we will see more over the remaining 3 weeks. Great Job Guys!

Our Featured Business: Model Ship Museum and Mussel Interpretation Centre

Walking into to the Model Ship Museum you cannot help but be surprised when you see the over 220 ships for your viewing pleasure. Everything from local models of such ships as “The Empress”, which was built close by in Montague, PEI, to an amazing 8 foot replica of the unsinkable Titanic. I was simply surprised with every turn of my head by the vast detail and time put into these magnificent marine masterpieces. I would highly recommend taking the whole family as it a wonderful day to spend some time learning about everything from shipbuilding to rum running.

Also, as if that does not sound like enough The Mussel Interpretive Centre will guide you through the brilliant beginnings of how mussels are grown right in St. Peter’s Bay; until they are harvested and served for us to enjoy! Founded by Russell Dockendorff Sr the company who owns the Interpretive Centre, Mussel King, has perfected their craft and continue to innovate the industry with new and delicious ways of enjoying their product!

Admission is only $5 for Adults, $3.50 for children and $15 for a family (maximum 2 adults, 3 children). Please enjoy the photos below of some of the 220 models you will see when you come to the Model Ship Museum and Mussel Interpretive Centre!
