Welcome to springtime weather in Cambridge Bay. The weather is warming up and as time goes by during this pandemic, many residents are able to enjoy the warmer outdoors, lots of kids playing out.
Many families head out across or to West Arm to go sliding on the fun hills around Cambridge Bay. The ice road to West Arm is popular, a fun time for families. During this pandemic it is important to get out of the house and get some fresh air. We have had a lot of snow fall, snowplows are busy clearing up snow here and there.
The caribou hunters are still busy harvesting fresh caribou for the residents of Cambridge Bay. We are so thankful for hunters providing fresh meat, especially for our Elders. We are so grateful, quana Beverly Maksagak and your crew for looking after us during this pandemic.
For few years it was hard to harvest caribou but lately it has been plentiful. Someone up there is looking after us all.
There is a teacher by the name of Kelli Hanson who has been busy few couple of weeks now giving out lunches for both the elementary and high school students. Kelli applied for a grant to purchase and prepare lunches for kids.
Very healthy lunches are made and about 75 to 100 lunches are made Monday to Friday and are ready for pick-up between 11:30am and 1:00pm or until all lunches are all picked up. Kelli gets help from other teachers and staff.
We are so thankful for looking after our kids and making them happy, it makes the parents happy that kids are happy. The food for the lunches are purchased locally at the stores in Cambridge Bay.
With not many travelling in and out of town by airplane, the airline company Canadian North have been flying in many food and freight to keep the stores stocked up well with food during this pandemic.
Residents of Cambridge Bay are very grateful for all who are making sure there is food, meals continue to be prepared by Qillaq Lodge and Department of Healthy Living for providing meals for our Elders and those who are in need.
It is so wonderful that so many volunteers and citizens making sure food is available during this time. Wanting to help people in our community is so awesome. Quana to everyone helping out.
Be careful out there as the roads are slippery, look after your Elders.
We are thinking of our friends/relatives from Nova Scotia and Fort McMurray. Stay strong.
God Be With You Son.
