The Ode rang out in Petty Harbour

The crowd in Petty Harbour can certainly belt out the Ode to Newfoundland, which they did Friday evening to wrap up Volunteer Appreciation Night. Recognized were (from right) Tom Best, who's led local fishermen through tempests and turbulent times (recipient of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal); Ann Payne (recipient of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal), who's tireless efforts have kept the museum afloat; and Harry Chafe, recipient of the town's Volunteer Recreation Recognition Award. The picture they're holding is of Petty Harbour, circa 1900.
