So as to inform the world via Canada Post that Chedabucto CC produces elite curlers, the Chedabucto CC historical postmark has been re-established at the Boylston Post Office. If you mail through Boylston, please request that the rink’s stamp cancellation be used. See photos below.

The pictorial postmark, believed to be the only such cancellation stamp existing in Canada, was originally obtained by the efforts of retired Post Master Carmen Barron but the stamp’s use fell to the wayside over the past decade. Through the effort of current Boylston Post Master Brenda Hall a revised stamp was obtained to continue to acknowledge that Canadian curling achievement and also to recognize a rural curling rink’s potential to produce elite curlers.
