Hey there, time traveller!

OUR seven-year-old granddaughter and 10-year-old grandson visited from out of province for two weeks.
We purchased a girl’s bike for Jillian to ride and borrowed one for Joel. Jillian absolutely loved her bike, and because she needed one back in Alberta, we decided to send it back on the airplane on the return flight. We were advised by WestJet the bike had to be wrapped and have the pedals removed and the handlebars pointed the other way.
We called Sterling Press in Selkirk, a packaging company. The bike was taken there, and the staff carefully shrink-wrapped it.
When we asked about payment, we were told to just pay it forward. They would not take any money for this odd request of wrapping a little girl’s bike.
We will pay this forward in some way or other, but would like to recognize the staff at Sterling Press, who were so kind and went out of their way to help a little girl get her bike home.
