My name is Laverne Campbell and I live in Charlottetown, Labrador with my husband of nearly 47 years. We have five children, eleven grandchildren and one great-grandson; we are so proud of all of them. I am retired now, but my life was spent running our own hotel for 20 years, working as a meter reader with NL Hydro for 25 years and co-ordinating Adult Education programs for many years. I have been involved with the NL Seniors Resource Centre and now I enjoy collaborating with the Kungatsiajuk-Healthy Smile group. I also love living in rural Labrador as it is so peaceful and there is nothing to make you afraid.

My name is Joan (Poole) Jenkins. I live in St. Lewis, Labrador with my husband and two sons (the eldest is presently away at University). My job as Secretary at St. Lewis Academy is very fulfilling and never a dull moment, I thoroughly enjoy it!

As a resident of a rural community, I spend a good share of my time volunteering as; Town Councillor, Recreation Committee, ACW (Womens Church Group), Regional Waste Management Committee, Kungatsiajuk- Healthy Smiles Team and St. Lewis Solutions Committee.

I love the ambience of living in a small rural community and all that it entails; from feeling secure in leaving your front door unlocked at night to skidooing in the Big Land.

I worked with the Southeastern Aurora Development Corporation for 12 years before retiring in 2008. Before that, my husband and I owned a retail business and I worked with Air Labrador for 20 years. Since 2008 I have been very involved in a volunteer capacity with organizations such as the Eagle River Community Housing Association, The Sandwich Bay 50 + Club, and various community advisory committees including this project, the Community – University Research Alliance ( CURA ) and Mealy Mountain National Park. I have been married for almost 45 years and we have two precious grandchildren who take up the rest of my time and I love every moment of it. I am very passionate about Labrador and the need for equality for the people of this great land.
