Last month the community of Elliston welcomed a group of young people, participants in the Katamavik program, who will live and work with them for the next few weeks. When they arrived in this small, north east coast Newfoundland town in the middle of winter, the young people shared their first impressions of Elliston. To view their comments see the "Katamavik" section of this site.

Weather Event of the Millennium

"Deeply embedded within the story of the SS Newfoundland [Death on the Ice] in the spring of 1914, and especially the story of Mary, Reuben and Albert John Crewe, are 101 symbols of Newfoundland life.... Perhaps we should... erect a fitting remembrance to this family and to families like them.... I know the perfect location in an outport community in Trinity Bay."
