Upcoming programs

National Canadian Film Day – You Are Here; a Come From Away Story Wed. April 17,  2:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Celebrate National Canadian Film Day by watching a wonderful film. What would you do if 6,600 people unexpectedly landed in your small town with no place to stay? For the 11,000 people of Gander, Newfoundland, this incredible event happened in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, when nearly 40 planes are rerouted and grounded there. This documentary shows how this town in Newfoundland came together to feed, shelter and support all of the stranded airline passengers for six days. Containing interviews from a selection of airline passengers and residents of the town, this emotional and inspirational documentary tells the incredible true story that inspired the smash-hit musical Come From Away. Admission is free and you can bring your own refreshments. Limit of 30 people.
