GOOSE COVE, NL – In 1957, a lit­tle town on the Great Northern Penin­sula grew in pop­u­la­tion.

Six­teen ba­bies came into the world and grew up in Goose Cove.

Fif­teen of the 1957 ba­bies re­united dur­ing Goose Cove Come Home year. They at­tended the feast at the Far East restau­rant and later gath­ered at Jerome McCarthy’s house in Goose Cove with cake, a sing along, laughs and con­ver­sa­tion about good mem­o­ries from the past.

“In 2007 we all cel­e­brated turn­ing 50 to­gether,” said Ger­tie Pil­grim. “It is just a great way to keep the con­nec­tion with our friends and fam­ily, and it makes us all feel more con­nected to our small com­mu­nity.”

The crew is ready to make its next mile­stone to­gether.

“When we all hit 65, you bet­ter watch out,” said Pil­grim. “The town will be rock­ing again, with a bunch of se­niors and their ugly sticks (walk­ing canes).”
