Cambridge Bay hosted the 2018 Nunavut Association of Municipalities annual general meeting November 20-23. The Nunavut mayors and SAOs gathered to discuss their community concerns, with guest speakers presenting.

Welcome to one of Canada’s coldest winter places with temperatures already reaching -50. Lots of sun when it comes out, though, making it so beautiful to watch, giving a great picturesqueness never to forget that beautiful image of our beautiful North.

The past month Cambridge Bay has hosted many visitors to our cold community attending conferences, workshops, and even for work. Cambridge Bay has enough hotel space to house our out-of-town guests, so the restaurants have been very busy.

We are happy to meet and make new friends from all over Nunavut. Also those from down south who got to experience the cold spot on the island. We hope you all enjoyed our friendly community.

Some exciting news! The arena is almost ready after being shutdown for problem of mould. Soon hockey will begin, and our minor hockey executive committee is gearing up for our youth hockey players to hopefully start hockey games in the new year or maybe earlier. Our hockey players have been patiently waiting for the words “there’s hockey.” Watch and listen for more hockey news! See you soon kids! Happy for you all.

Santa Claus is coming to town! This year’s Santa Claus parade will be on Saturday, December 8 starting at 1 p.m. at the community hall. Everyone is encouraged to join the parade with their awesome floats. After the parade there will be a coffee house back at the community hall with door prizes and much more. A family day for everyone!

Wellness Centre is making a list of names for families who will receive Christmas food hampers till December 10.

The Christmas Games Committee with volunteer Albert Okhina and helpers will have the first night of games Friday, December 14. The schedule is being finalized and will be available soon. All games and festivities will be held at the Luke Novoligak Community Hall and the Kiilinik High School gymnasium.

God Be With You Son. You are not forgotten.
