Whether you are a resident or a visitor, I welcome you to explore Pouch Cove and all it has to offer. As Mayor, I would encourage visitors to our Town to enjoy the scenic beauty that Pouch Cove is known for, to experience the hike of the East Coast Trail along our Killick Coast, to browse through the Museum of our Towns history located at the Town Hall and to take part in our community events such as Pouch Cove Days, Canada Day Celebrations, Snowfest and much more. The beauty of our Town is all around you. A rural setting with plenty of history and friendly faces…a great place to visit!
To the residents of Pouch Cove, I would encourage you to get involved in the many wonderful activities in our Town: a dedicated Volunteer Fire Department, an active Recreation Commission, Seniors Club, Lions Club, the school community of Cape St. Francis Elementary, Library Board, Heritage Committee, Church groups and more. Pouch Cove has much to offer and we, as residents, should take pride in it. Pouch Cove is a wonderful place to live!
The Pouch Cove Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting an Open house/Information session night during this years volunteer week for anyone who may be interested in volunteering with the Department. The department will be welcoming anyone interested on the night of April 9th at 8:00.
Why volunteer with the Pouch Cove Fire Department? The PCFD is known across the province for its dedication and professionalism. With top notch equipment and the provision of quality training certification that is recognized around the world we serve our community through fire protection and fire prevention.
