Black Press Media expressed heartfelt appreciation for the folks who bring the paper to your door, rain or shine. Close to 100 carriers of all ages showed up for Carrier Appreciation Day 2018, which took place at the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club in Saanich on Saturday.
The event was a great time and a nice way to say thank you to those who deliver the newspaper to our readers, said Julia Henshall, circulation manager for the Goldstream News Gazette.
“Everyone really enjoyed the food and activities,” she noted. “Many of those in attendance had never been on a dragon boat, kayak or stand up paddleboard before, so it was a bit of an adventure for some.”
Henshall thanked the staff at the Saanich News, the Gazette’s sister paper, for organizing the event, and Fairway Markets for providing the hot dogs and refreshments.
