Plea for return of missing pictures

A Red Cross volunteer whose tablet was stolen would like the pictures that were on it back.

Dear Editor,

I was recently deployed as a volunteer with the Disaster Management team of the Red Cross to of all places Cache Creek; a beautiful town where I had the pleasure of growing up. I am so proud of the strength and courage the town had through this event! Bravo to all of you.

Sometimes when we are deployed we use our personal equipment at the beginning. I was using my Samsung tablet, and left it on my desk at the Resiliency Centre at the Community Hall on May 29 between 12:00 and 12:30 pm, and when I came back it was missing. I was disheartened. It is okay, though: whoever has it needed it more than me. The problem is I had spent three months taking care of my grandfather in Germany last year, and all of the wonderful last memories of him were on the tablet.

I am reaching out to whoever has the tablet. Out of the kindness of your heart, perhaps you could anonymously return the pictures to the Journal office. I would be eternally grateful. The tablet is yours—it was a helpful tool for when I am deployed and being a single mother I can not replace it. One day. However, the pictures: well, my Opa has since passed, and I can’t stress how wonderful it would be to have those special memories back.

Debbie Blumauer,


[Editor’s note: the pictures can be burned on a disc or put on a flash drive and left in the white drop-box outside the Journal office]
