Nancy Johnston showed beautiful photos of a trip to Twillingate where she took a boat to see the iceburgs. She also had photos of a visit to Fogo Island.

Elizabeth Klaas’s presentation showed her trip which started with very windy and rainy weather. It was a trip to find out about her ancestors and she used the camera as a historic record keeper. Her trip included visits to some charming towns and some very wild spots. She also had a trip around the botanical gardens.

Reg Archibald gave a slideshow which was a view of Newfoundland in wintertime, 1978.
