27th Annual Seguin Dog Sled Mail Run

1/20/11 | Liz Antochin | www.angelfire.com/poetry/onthetrail/ 

27th Annual Seguin Dog Sled Mail Run

Every year since 1985, envelopes with letters prepared especially for this event, are gathered, loaded onto sleds and several dog teams haul it to Rosseau, Ontario, 17 km through the bush on groomed trails.

Teams gather and leave from the Village of Humphrey, Ontario, on Highway 141, to the cheers and good wishes from the many spectators and friends as the teams disappear in the bush on their way to the Rosseau Post Office to be received by the Post Master.

The sledvelopes are hand stamped, a very old method of cancelling mail. These "sledvelopes" have become collector items all over the world.

If you would like to experience the excitement of this event, come to meet the drivers and the dogs on Saturday, February 19th, 2011 in the Village of Humphrey. Enjoy a pancake breakfast with the group at the Humphrey Community Centre. There will be activities for the children and many opportunities to have pictures taken with the beautiful, friendly huskies.
