Parks Stephenson speaks to the folks attending the Titanic Commemorative Dinner at Trepassey near Cape Race.  Later that night he would join all the participants to hear Titanic’s wireless calls once again - a century later ….perhaps to the second…..of when events happened in 1912.  On April 15, 2012 a 2-hour television documentary featuring Parks made its world premiere.  Parks came to Cape Race for the Titanic Centennial and provided us with this photo of the Marconi Station that received Titanic’s distress message.  The Myrick Centre at Cape Race stands on the same site and shares the same construction as the original Marconi station shown in this photo. 

The Receiving Titanic Commemorative Program on April 14/15 included a wonderful performance by The Man of a Thousand Songs, Ron Hynes. Ron has family ties to Long Beach and other communities on the Irish Loop - the route to Cape Race.
