  • West Coast Theatre Named in Honour of Nurse Myra Bennett

    The new performing arts centre in Cow Head will be known as the Nurse Myra Bennett Centre for the Performing Arts.

    The announcement was made earlier today at MUN’s Signal Hill Campus.

    The name was chosen by the Basil Dobbin Family Foundation, and comes with a $1-million donation.

    There is currently almost $3.5-million raised for the $10-million facility.

    Judy Dobbin made the announcement today on behalf of her family, and she says it was important for her family to name the centre after Myra Bennett because of what she represented.

    She says Myra Bennett represented tenacity, resilience and hope. She says that those traits are the “ties that bind us” as a society.
