They have the first-ever, and only, polar bear prison for naughty bears who walk saunter into town. Children are advised not to dress up as polar bears on Halloween so police can tell them apart from actual polar bears.

STAMP COLLECTING FOR CHARITY:  

Flo Reid writes:  Further to my article in our September newsletter,  as I hadn’t had any feedback from OXFAM since COVID started, when I sent our last batch of stamps I asked my contact there whether our donations were worthwhile.  He replied saying that  some of our wonderful stamps were going out that day to fill orders and to please keep collecting for them. 

 

So keep collecting!  Thanks to those ladies who have mailed their awesome stamps to me.        

If you have any questions, please phone Flo at 403-990-1556 or e-mail flobobreid@shaw.ca
