Put this in your calendar! On Saturday, February 24, 2024, there will be the 39th Annual Seguin Sled Dog Mail Run. The kind assistance of local companies and authorities makes this event possible.

Since 1985, numerous dog teams have been gathering, loading “sledvelopes” with specially prepared letters for this occasion, and hauling them 17 km via groomed pathways through the bush to Rosseau, Ontario. Teams form up and head out on Highway 141 from the Village of Humphrey, Ontario, amid the applause and well wishes of a large number of onlookers and friends. They vanish into the forest and travel to Rosseau, where the postmaster will greet them.

The “sledvelopes” are manually stamped using an antiquated technique for canceling mail. Around the world, these “sledvelopes” are now prized possessions for collectors.

Sledvelopes will be available for purchase starting Wednesday, January 10, 2024, at:

Seguin Public Libraries
Rosseau Post Office
Rosseau General Store
Humphrey Arena
Seguin Township Municipal Office
Each sledvelope is $3.50 each or $5.00 with a $1.50 donation to Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary.
