Visit Newfoundland with Cheryl and Louis!

Join Louis and Cheryl Fontaine and their friends on Tuesday, February 28, and Thursday, March 2, to visit Newfoundland. They completed a “bucket list” trip to western Newfoundland this past August. Like them, you will surely be drawn to this beautiful province by its scenery, geology, and the unique natural settings of Gros Morne National Park and the Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site.

Their two-part presentation will cover their 18-day adventure from Maine via two ferry routes and 3,000 miles of road to Port aux Basque, Newfoundland, through Gros Morne National Park, all the way up to the Viking colony site at L’Anse aux Meadows, and back. They will share with you the immense beauty of the island, some of the geologic history, unique natural settings, past cultural history, the impact of global warming, loss of the cod fisheries, and stories of how the warm and wonderful people live their lives on the island today.
