May kindness be repaid
I was fortunate enough to get my first Pfizer vaccine on March 30 at the RBC Convention Centre.
Unfortunately, as I went to register online in mid-May for my second shot, it became apparent that my Manitoba health card was nowhere to be found. I realized that the last time I had it was when I showed it for that day.
I did call to get a replacement card; however, to my surprise, in today’s mail was another envelope from Manitoba Health containing my lost card and a Home Depot gift card with a $5.50 balance. I don’t think the gift card was in with my health card when I lost it, but I am most grateful to the person who found my card and sent it back to Manitoba Health so that it found its way back to me.
May your kindness be repaid to you.

Going above and beyond
During an otherwise enjoyable family visit to the Winnipeg Zoo in early May, one of the children lost his favourite cloth mask. It had not been turned into the Lost and Found by the time we were leaving.
A helpful zoo volunteer mentioned she had seen the distinctive mask earlier and remembered the location. I knew I would get lost trying to find it. She very kindly offered to try to find it (not close by) and hopefully return it to us while we waited.
Although I said we did not expect her to go to all that effort, she persisted. You can imagine how elated we were when she returned with it and one young boy was relieved and very happy.
We would like to thank Patty very much. We were very touched with her concern, caring and generosity of time and personal effort. Our experience of her kindness will be a lasting example for each of us to follow and we will never forget it.
