It’s hard typing a comment due to the tears in my eyes. Thank you Peggy for this rich description of your wonderful other home, and allowing some of us to do some armchair traveling. The place and the community shared are equally astounding.

The musical Come From Away, the story of the ‘plane people’ and their empathetic and generous Gander hosts is coming to the Times Union Center in December. It’s a wonderful, inspiring, lighthearted, feel good show.

I only know of one book and that is the day the world came to town: 9/11 in gander Newfoundland a paperback. What are the other two books? I’d love to read those as well. Simple random acts of kindness will change this crazy world not yet more government proclamations

Wonderful story! During my day in the Navy, we would pull into St Johns each month when I was on an Oceanographic Research Ship and I really enjoyed Argentia as well. Great and hardy people.

There is no single group of people who embrace the meaning of being a part of humanity more thoroughly than the residents of Newfoundland….and there is nothing quite like the Newfie sense of humour. (I’m from Nova Scotia).

Nickolas, there are two new books that just came out this summer (20th anniversary). If you contact the Gander Tourist Center or the Gander Public Library, they will have the titles.
