The Trinity Benefit Club (TBC) - 170 Years of History, 1838 - 2008

Creator(s): Trinity Museum

On Candlemas Day, also known as Groundhog Day, in 1838, 76 men met at the Trinity Bight area courthouse in Newfoundland and Labrador for what would be a milestone in Canadian history. These men founded the Trinity Benefit Club (TBC), an association that would provide financial assistance to members who were sick or unable to work. This Community Memories exhibit relates the history of the Trinity Benefit Club.
