Village receives mystery package

The Village of Valemount got a mysterious package delivered via the post office. It was from their T-shirt supplier for the visitor centre, but the Village hadn’t ordered any shirts. When they opened the box they found a shipment of special COVID-19 “Valemount Strong #wecanbeatthis” shirts, a gift from the T-shirt maker. Council decided to donate the shirts to front-line workers at IGA and IDA tele-pharmacy. “A thank you to all the local businesses that are open and helping to keep the village running,” said Valemount CAO Wayne Robinson.
