Twin of Chippewa Park Carousel Horse

Featured on Canada Post Stamp

THUNDER  BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~  August 22, 222022 (LSNews)  On July 21, Canada Post released an enchanting set of stamps to celebrate the wonder and playfulness of vintage carousels in Canada.

One of those stamps features the Burnaby Carousel which is the twin sister of our very own C.W. Parker Carousel located at Chippewa Park.  “I was thrilled to see that one of two horses we adopted for our grandchildren was identical to the one featured on a stamp!” exclaimed long-time carousel supporter, Karen Fukushima.”

Speaking of the 5 fully restored carousels, Canada Post stated, “The vibrant stamps spotlight five historic carousels located across the country. The featured carousels are each known for their elaborately carved and beautifully painted animals. They also showcase the craftsmanship and mechanical ingenuity that were impressive for their era.”

“We are so pleased Canada Post has highlighted the significance and beauty of carousels in Canada. The timing couldn’t be better”, said, Donna Gilhooly, Co-Chair of the Carousel Restoration Committee. “The community can visit Chippewa Park which is a featured site for this year’s Doors Open celebration. The community will be able to see first-hand, horse 11A, found on the Canada Post Stamp. She is named Georgia’s Rosie in honour of Karen & Ed Fukushima’s granddaughter.”

“Come to Chippewa Park to celebrate Doors Open on Saturday, September 10th from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free. The community can visit the Pavilion and Carousel both valued and much-loved heritage structures in the community” she concluded.

The stamps cost $9.20 for a booklet of 10 and are available from Canada Post at most Thunder Bay outlets.

The Friends of Chippewa Park still have a few horses available for adoption.
