Had a Facebook message from a great Friend Tracy A from Hillsburgh, Ontario. Ivan G, a fellow member of the Church was cleaning up the flower boxes in the front of the Church. Ivan arrived home to notice his wedding band was missing. This was his replacement wedding band after loosing a diamond filled wedding band at a golf course over 5 years ago.

I arrived the next evening with Tracy. Tracy filled me in on the details. This was a 2′ wide by 20′ to 25′ length flower box. The areas below the flower planter boxes was 2′ by 6′ roughly. This was a job for my GARRETT ‘CARROT’ PIN POINTER. So “grinding’ with the pin pointer was the plan of action!

I decided to do a live recovery video on “Facebook Live”.  We checked the one side below the flower boxes….nothing. Moved over to the other side…I had to remove some of the “Erin Fall Fair” display. The metal chair the (stuffed) gentle was sitting on was in the way. Within 5 minutes I was very happy to find the massive SIZE 15 10k Platinum/Gold ring!! What a WHOOPER OF A RING!! Largest one for me to find!

Hillsburgh 03We went into speak to the Minister. We decided not to keep Ivan in suspense…so Tracy called and left a message that his wedding ring will be waiting for him at Sunday Church.

I had a returned Ivan’s call and offered to help locate the beloved lost Ring #1!! Ivan was very grateful and is very kind in offering a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Snow Run that I will be riding my snowmobile Feb 2017! This wonderful charity provide financial assistance to patients fighting this terrible disease!! “PAYING IT FORWARD”…rocks!! Here is a link to my “Metal Detecting for Charity” FB page <3 https://www.facebook.com/metaldetectingforcharity/

He said “I never knew there was such an organization of “The Ring Finders”!! I filled him in on the global directory of excellent Detectorists!!

I am looking forward to assisting in finding Ivan’s 1st lost wedding band at a Golf course in the near future!! Stay tuned….
