Hello 2023! Happy New Year to the beautiful community of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, land of the Inuinnait.
Also home of the world-class Canadian High Arctic Research Station (known as CHARS.) Soon the sun will return, spring will soon be here. We hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday season with family and friends.
Would like to thank all the hard working volunteers and to the many who donated to the community of Cambridge Bay. It is most helpful too when food hampers are delivered to each family in our beautiful community, to see a box of surprises sitting at your doorstep when you get home is the most wonderful gift anyone can have this time of year.
Also wish to recognize the hard work of our recreation coordinator, Tracy Okhina, who works tirelessly to make sure the games and activities happen. Quana, Hogaluk. Time for a nice holiday getaway.
Also to all the volunteers to cheer up our children and a big quana to Santa Claus for visiting our children this year, even though it was cold out. Big thank you to the stores and their staff for serving the customers, Hamlet of Cambridge Bay, Kitikmeot Inuit Association, Kalgen’s Dis and Dat Convenience Store, Kalgen’s Hardware Store, Ikaluktutiak Co-op, Northern, Ikaluktutiak Elks, and many local businesses and organizations who made Christmas happen for Cambridge Bay. Quana for making the holidays special.
We hope everyone look forward to a new year, new beginnings and to have a better year than the last. Look after each other and stay well. Keep washing your hands and wear masks when possible, stay home if you’re feeling sick. Stay healthy and be happy and strong.
God Be With You Son.
