Kicking off the activities for the Fall lobster fishing season, the Molly Kool Kitchen Party hosted a full house in Molly Kool's childhood home on October 14th. Guests were entertained with song, dance, music, and storytelling, set in the era when Molly earned her Captain's certificate in 1939. It set the spirit and mood for the 2015 Fleet Launch, as Alma visitors and residents spent the day participating, observing, and taking photos as the crews prepared their lobster boats, and loaded their traps and equipment. It was a colourful flurry of activity up and down Main Street all day long.
Barbara A. Gebuhr of Riverside-Albert and Elizabeth “Beth” McLaughlin of Moncton (posthumously) have been named recipients of the 2015 Molly Kool Award. An award ceremony will take place on October 13, at 7 pm at the Molly Kool Centre, located at 8618 Main Street in Alma, NB as part of the 2015 Fleet Launch Festival. Everyone is welcome.
Barbara A. Gebuhr is well known as the former principal of Riverside-Albert and has been a key player in saving the school. Her work extends far beyond the expectations of a school principal. Even after her retirement, Gebuhr remains extensively involved with community work. From working on the Community Market to researching and lobbying for Early Childhood Education Project for the school, her initiatives make a significant contribution to the community.
On the midnight high tide on late on October 13th, a fleet of lobster fishing boats will sail from the wharf in Alma, New Brunswick, to the cheers of a loyal and appreciative community. The autumn lobster season in this small fishing and tourism village kicks off with a festive celebration that draws international attendance, more than doubling the usual population of 252.
