This book was donated to our archival collection today by Rosalind Champion via The United Church Women of Wesleyville.  Rosalind recently found the book amongst her father's personal things, and assumes that it came from her grandmother, Sarah Mullett. 
 
The book has much information for those interested in historical records of the people of the area, with descriptions of teas at Wesley Hall, Roll Calls for several years of the Association's existence.  If you'd like to examine the book, please email us.  We'd be happy to arrange a viewing, or arrange to have the book scanned and added to our website.
 
Thanks to Rosalind for forwarding the book along.

Safe Harbour Excursion

One of many resettled communities in the Bonavista North area, Safe Harbour is a fantastic spot to explore if you can find someone to bring you there in a boat!














































This photo was taken inside a small building.  Someone has painted a map of the area with a key showing who lived where, also the location of a one time whaling factory, cemeteries, etc.  The door was unlocked, and there is a guest book to sign inside too.  Whoever is responsible for this, thank you!  My little group enjoyed this very much.
