Stellas Circle - The Legacy of Stella Burry

Stella Burry (1897-1991) was a Newfoundlander born in Greenspond, Bonavista Bay. She became an deaconess in the United Church, and was the founder of many of the social programs and agencies still offered by Stella Burry Community Services, a leading social services agency in St. John's, Newfoundland. Using interviews, photographs and archival footage, this warm and funny documentary gives an insight into the history and personality of this extraordinary woman. Recommended for the general public, Stella's Circle: The Legacy of Stella Burry will be of particular interest to social workers, historians, and church and community activists.
