Hennebury our Storyteller on July 6th
storytelling career began at age 3 when I earnestly explained to my parents,
while holding an empty bottle, that I had not spilled my bubbles on the couch.
Understandably, they didn't believe that the wet couch was the result of water
shooting out of their daughter's nose but I swear that my stories have improved
greatly since then. I like to tell a huge variety of stories, including myths,
family stories, folk tales and stuff I made up, and my topics range from the story of Sekhmet, an avenging Egyptian goddess, to the story of the time my Dad tricked my uncle out of a hotdog. My stories are big fun to tell, and I hope you have fun listening.
The Bowring Park Foundation was established on April 18, 1995, as a not-for-profit organization under the patronage of Derrick Bowring, a relative of Sir Edgar Bowring. Sir Edgar donated the park land to the City of St. John's in 1911 on behalf of Bowring Brothers Ltd. on their 100th anniversary of commerce in Newfoundland.
In cooperation with the City of St. John’s, The Bowring Park Foundation is a Citizens group formed to ensure, through active participation in restoration and future development projects, that Bowring Park is maintained and developed as a public park for quiet family enjoyment for the citizens of the region.
