Kensington, PE (February 3, 2014) – A new commemorative cancellation stamp marking the 100th anniversary of the Town of Kensington’s incorporation was unveiled at this year’s Mayor’s Levee.
Kensington’s 2014 Centennial Celebrations Committee made application to Canada Post in 2013 for the commemorative cancellation stamp. It was used for the first time at the Levee. 2014 Committee member and Canada Post employee, Elaine Chessman, used the stamp to cancel the postage on a letter written to a future Kensington Mayor, by current Mayor, Gordon Coffin. The letter is slated to be placed in a time capsule later this year as a part of the celebrations.
“Kensington is justly proud of its 100 years of incorporation.” says Mayor Coffin. “The town has shown great resilience over the years and we look forward to many great years ahead.”
Kensington’s Deputy Mayor and 2014 Committee Chair Rowan Caseley said, “The Committee is very excited about the cancellation stamp and it is our hope that the stamp gets a lot of use throughout 2014 and beyond.”
The cancellation stamp boasts a modified version of the Town’s new logo, with the years 1914 – 2014 and the current date.
