As is the tradition, we had a potluck dinner and talent show. Following the talent show, we had a Screeching In Ceremony. A screeching in is where the screechees are required to drink/eat a variety of interesting foods including caeplins (small whole dried fish (head and eyeballs intact), cod liver oil, serenity syrup, molasses candy, etc. The end initiation is kissing a cod. Screechees are then dubbed Honorary Newfoundlanders.
Pres. Pratt and I chickened out, but we had 6 missionaries take the plunge. All were successful.
