Pouch Cove, Newfoundland
is a seaside community located on the Northeast Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, approximately 20 km outside St. John's. We have a vast and rich history as a community and in 2009 The Pouch Cove Heritage Society was created to preserve and promote that history.
Since our inaugural meeting in the spring of 2009 the Society has been busy! We organize community events to help residents of our community remember their past and learn about their roots. We take great pride in the support our residents extend to us when we celebrate and share historic and community events. Some of our community activities to date include the commemorations of the Waterwitch shipwreck and rescue, Pouch Cove Heritage Days, a heritage night with storytelling, a kitchen party, a commemoration to mark the 100th anniversary of The 1914 Sealing Disaster, many interviews with our seniors, and our new book 'Our Home By The Sea'.
We are an active organization always looking for new members and volunteers. We are busy with many new activities on our radar, including our veterans project. If you are looking for a place to volunteer your time and make a difference in the community, please join us!
