Do you remember the concerts and times at the old SUF hall in Pouch Cove? Did you dance there, or have a reception there? Do you know someone who was a member, or remember parades? Come celebrate the history of the SUF, meet former members, and maybe even taste some fudge. Bring any old photos, certificates, or SUF memorabilia, and the Pouch Cove heritage society will take photos or scan it, to help record the important place of the SUF in Pouch Cove history.
