The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Kathryn Au­got Photo

A sunny July af­ter­noon and deep blue wa­ters of the bay were the back­drop for the un­veil­ing of the 1929 Tidal Wave/Tsunami Me­mo­rial, which claimed the lives of 27 Burin Penin­sula res­i­dents. Three sto­ry­boards also com­prise the mon­u­ment. Three long time res­i­dents of Port au Bras who ex­pe­ri­enced the dis­as­ter joined Burin coun­cil­lors in the un­veil­ing. From left are: Coun. Shane Foote, Ch­es­ley Abbott, Lot­tie Matthews, Coun. Ross Pitcher, Coun. Howard Lun­dri­gan and El­iz­a­beth Clarke.
