East Machias canoe sled a work of art

Hunter Bishop, a 10-year-old who lives in East Machias and attends Elm Street School, recently collaborated with his dad to create a “sled” for a downhill race that was planned as part of the Winter Festival in Machias. Cardboard and duct tape were the approved materials, with design and decoration left up to the builders.  A photo of a canoe seen on a postcard at the Wabanaki Cultural Center in Calais was Hunter’s inspiration.
