It’s as famous as Fish and Chips, Whales, and Icebergs. Call it silly or welcoming, say what you like but there are more Honorary Newfoundlanders then there are those born and bred on the Rock. Why? Not sure. But allot of people have stumbled upon our website. And we are glad you did. Because 2023 and 2024 will be special years.
Come From Away came home this year. And is now playing on the world stage. Introducing people to the Newfoundland experience. And a first Sreech In's are now taking place off the Island. And why not. There is a Newfoundlander somewhere in your town. So people are stay’n put and ordering their Screecher Kits and T-Shirts and hunting for a Newfoundlander to host the ceremony.
Whatever your plan. Visiting or staying put. If you have been screeched in than register your Screech In now. Or claim your ceremony below. And of course order your T-Shirt and Hat just as a keep sake and conversation piece. Or if you dare, make the trip but reserve your place to be screeched in without any fuss or muss.
Afterall if it’s good enough for A-Listers and Celebs like the person to the right then it’s good enough for you.
