We would also like to remind citizens that any person found to be conducting open air burning in contravention of the ban, is guilty of an offence and subject to charges being filed in Provincial Offences Court.

It’s hard to believe that it’s the Merry Christmas time of year already! I think we blinked on Labour Day and now it’s Christmas Eve.

The past 2 days have seen some big winter weather, with more to come.  We want to say a huge thank you to the hydro crews, snow plow crews and all other front-line workers who are working around the clock to try and keep everyone safe and warm through this winter storm. Countless hours and time away from family is always difficult, especially over the holidays.  Also big thanks to the wonderful people up here who are out lending a hand with snow and trees, and offering places to get warm, get phones charged, and get coffee. We are so fortunate to live and work in this community.

Leah had her first knee replacement done at the end of October. She has recovered extremely well, and is very appreciative of the well wishes so many of you have sent.  Her second knee replacement has been scheduled for the beginning of January, and she hope to be well enough to travel to New Zealand in April for the International Dragon Boat Festival.

We had a busy fall, as always, and topped it off through November and December with some changes in the store. We are excited to welcome you back in to a brighter, more organized store in the New Year (Jan. 3rd)! We will be open Monday-Friday in January from 9am-4pm. February and March open Monday-Saturday from 9am-4pm, as well as Sundays when snowmobile trails are officially open.

Stay safe and warm this weekend.
From our entire Little Gull Family, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for a happy, healthy 2023!
