A bou­quet for two N.L. Good Sa­mar­i­tans

The Beacon (Gander) - - Editorial -

My hus­band and I were vis­it­ing in St. John’s on Aug. 30, and that morn­ing, walked along Mil­i­tary Road to The Rooms. Along the way, I lost track of my back­pack-styled purse.

What an un­happy way to end a great va­ca­tion, we thought!

But, a kind-hearted wo­man found the purse, saw a con­sta­ble nearby at the Basil­ica Cathe­dral of St. John the Bap­tist, and asked him to take the bag as a lost and found item.

About that same mo­ment, my hus­band was call­ing the phone num­ber of the cell, at­tempt­ing to find out if he could hear it ring­ing nearby.

The con­sta­ble re­trieved the phone, and an­swered it.

Voila! Ar­range­ments were hastily made to meet the con­sta­ble out­side The Rooms, and I was soon re­united with my purse.

Thank you to the wo­man who took the lonely look­ing purse to the con­sta­ble, near the Basil­ica.

Also, thank you to the con­sta­ble for go­ing out of his way to meet us out­side The Rooms.

New­found­lan­ders are truly among the best.

Best wishes, Pam Gregg Sid­ney, B.C.
