Sled Dogs and Pancakes

Come out for pancakes and help the kids! Enjoy breakfast Sat, Feb 15, 2020 while at the Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run at the Humphrey Community Centre.

This year marks the 36th anniversary of the Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run, and it will be held on Saturday, February 15th, 2020.

Every year since 1985, “sledvelopes” with letters prepared especially for this event, are gathered, loaded onto sleds and hauled by several dog teams 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 Mistress.

The “sledvelopes” are hand stamped, a very old method of cancelling mail. These “sledvelopes” have become collector items all over the world. What a wonderful surprise for a child, or even adult, to receive mail which has traveled by dogsled, pulled by eager Siberian Huskies!

If you would like to experience the excitement of this event, come to meet the drivers and the dogs on Saturday, February 15th, 2020 in the Village of Humphrey. Enjoy 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.  – Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run
