Smiths Falls Rotary wants to share the remarkable events that took place on September 11, 2001 in Gander, Newfoundland, through the eyes of the people who lived through them. Four Gander residents who inspired the hit musical Come From Away will take the stage at the Mason Theatre (PDCI) — Mayor Claude Elliott, Beulah Cooper, Officer Ozwald “Oz” Fudge, and TV broadcaster Brian Mosher. Joined by host Delmer MacGregor and local musicians, these residents will share their experiences of the five historic days when the small town of Gander hosted 38 planes carrying 7,000 passengers from all over the world.

“The story that touched the world and celebrates the best people can be. We need it especially now.”
— NBC News Anchor, Tom Brokaw
