      Anyone who is interested in the full message regarding the following event:

      On Friday, July 18th, 2008 great-granddaughter of Métis Mail carrier Billy Loutit, will re-run the heroic and historic 100 mile route this Hudson Bay Company messenger ran in 1904 saving the flood ridden post of Athabasca.  Dispatched to get emergency assistance from Fort Edmonton, Billy Loutit ran the 100 mile trek in a mere 16 hours, beating another messenger on horseback by an hour!

      Please email me. All email addresses will be kept confidential.
