              “The staff of Gros Morne Resort and I are honoured to have an opportunity to partner with Theatre Newfoundland Labrador on such a worthwhile initiative,” said resort general manager Chris Legge. “The resort as well as the entire business community has greatly benefited from TNL's presence in the area.
