Special reunions and new meetings happen here every day. Yesterday this one was shared with us. Margie (from Stellarton) and Gabi (from Rehovot, Israel) have been pen pals for 43 years. They met for the first time here yesterday!

Here’s one of our volunteers, Cheryl Byard, with a special visitor earlier this month. Eight week old Finley is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and was at the airport when his “Dad” flew in from St. John’s to pick him up.

We had a special visitor in the airport today – Super P! Make-A-Wish Foundation Atlantic Canada child, Phillip, was on his way to Disney when WestJet explained the pilot had misplaced the key to the plane. Super P went on a mini-adventure through the airport to retrace the pilot’s steps. He found the key and saved the day!
