Millions of people across Canada and the world have seen The Dimestore Fishermen. We do our best to make a difference in people’s lives. What’s amazing to us today is how enthusiastic people are when we visit their community. When people approach us to profess their excitement at our attendance in their community, they are excited to tell us all about how we have a connection to them.
