This summer, the humble postcard made a comeback, thanks to the many Newsroom readers and social media followers who participated in our Put It on a Postcard campaign.
Since Memorial Day, we have received dozens of postcards in the mail from Cape Cod, Rome, Montreal, South Dakota and many other travel destinations. We also had a lot of conversations about the postcard campaign on our Twitter feed using the hashtag #PutItOnAPostcard.
Take a look at a few of the postcards we received.
Postcard Campaign Submissions
Claire St. Pierre, a machine room truck loader at our Kamloops Mill, vacationed in British Columbia this summer and sent us a postcard with an exciting message. She wrote, “My husband and I traveled the ‘Alaskan Highway’ from Liard Hot Springs, [British Columbia], to Watson Lake, Yukon. In that one day, we saw 11 bears, more than [we’ve seen in] all our lifetime. We also saw bison, foxes [and] rabbits. The Great North is wild and beautiful.”
Ginette Labelle, a senior human resources manager at our Montreal office, participated in our postcard campaign by highlighting her hometown. “Summer time is always busy in Montreal with all the festivals,” she wrote. “With its 375th anniversary, it’s even more exciting. A lot of visitors, a lot of great events and a lot of great people, but also great food. [Montreal is] a place to be in 2017! Welcome all!”
Laurie Green and Angela Graves, who work at our Fort Mill office, received a postcard from Italy. Mark Thornton, a consultant working with the Domtar sales service group, sent the postcard through the Vatican City post office. He wrote, “Ciao da Roma e la Citta del Vaticanna. Ho una buona vacanza qui in Italia.” (Translation: Hello from Rome and the Vatican City. I have a good vacation here in Italy.)
