Esteves is one of many Portuguese fishermen who died prosecuting the cod fishery, his grave remains unmarked. To remember those who have died and to create a memorial to celebrate our close connections with the Portuguese, a monument to the Portuguese White Fleet fishermen who died in Newfoundland waters, during their fishing campaigns, is being designed. Help support the design and construction of this memorial with an evening with friends at the Masonic Hall where guests will be treated to a Portuguese dining menu with suggested wine pairings.
