Welcome to spring time weather in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. It has been alot warmer now that spring time is arriving quickly up here on our little corner of Victoria Island. With more warmer weather kids are out playing outdoors more often now and longer daylight hours. This time of year the roads in town are very slippery and all the heavy equipment is out hauling snow piles out of town.
It seems there was another record amount of snow this past winter in Cambridge Bay. Would like to thank the heavy equipment operators for ensuring that our community roads and pathways are safe and cleared, especially for our municipal service vehicles to access the sewage and water outlets to each home, buildings, offices, etc. Please be careful when walking as it is very slippery, many injuries happen with icy walkways, and doorways as snow and ice is melting quickly.
Lately post office has different hours set up for public to pick up parcels etc. at the wicket, there is now a security guard at the post office to ensure everyone’s safety. During this pandemic a lot of residents are now ordering more from online, so at times mail and parcels are arriving daily. We hope the new staff will be safe and enjoy their work and to continue to serve residents of beautiful Cambridge Bay.
At this time we would like to say a very special “QUANA” to the Kitikmeot Inuit Association and Ikaluktutiak Co-op for all the meat packs that we have been receiving as beneficiaries. It was most helpful during this pandemic with the already expensive food prices in the North. It put food on the table for many families that needed it. Once again Quana everyone. Everyone was so thankful and happy.
Plans for the 2021 Omingmak Frolics are going well with Zach and a small committee planning events for the May spring festival. As you may know frolics this year will only be held outdoors and keeping social distancing in mind during this pandemic, just to keep safe and to follow restrictions put out by the chief public health office from Iqaluit. Soon the schedule/program will be available to the public. Stay safe everyone. Keep wearing your masks and wash your hands.
God Be With You Son.
