A MERRY EDITION
We are proud to present our annual Christmas edition of The Compass. Please take the time to scan the more than 200 letters to Santa that dominate this week’s special edition, featuring so many bright, innocent young faces and their cute, heartening letters. There’s also plenty of photos from recent Christmas parades, including those in Whiteway-Cavendish (A3), Harbour Grace (A6), Bay de Verde (A8), Burnt Point (A11), Placentia (B9), Bay Roberts (C1) and Carbonear (D1). We plan to publish additional photos in upcoming editions, and many are also available as slideshows at http://www.cbncompass.ca/. The level of participation in these parades seems to be growing every year, and is indicative of the holiday spirit that develops inside us as the Christmas season approaches. This week’s edition also includes the usual helping of news, columns and features, with a special emphasis on Christmas and the kindness and compassion that often reinforces our love for family and friends. Please enjoy this holiday edition, and we hope that you continue to put your trust and confidence in The Compass as we prepare to turn the calendar on a new year.
