Cheers and Jeers November 2nd edition

Best and worst of the week

• Cheers to Nicole at Soul Strength for being a pet friendly awesome human being. May you set an example for all the other landlords to spread the love….

• Cheers to Horsethief Creek Pub and Eatery! You got my vote FOR BEST POUTINE hands down at the Poutine Palooza! It was the last one I tried and I simply devoured it! Great work Cortney for organizing the event and all the restaurants and other town staff/volunteers whom helped make the event a ton of fun!

• HUGE CHEERS to NO FRILLS, SOBEYS, and SUE MILLER for their generous donations to All Saints Church Guild. And CHEERS also to everyone who donated apples, and purchased our pies, so we could once again have a successful fundraiser. Hope everyone enjoyed the pies.

• Cheers to the awesome folks that decided to fill in the ditch next to the road up to Panorama. My windshield was feeling far too fancy without any cracks in it, and my car tires definitely need the practice driving over rocks every day for when I move to a gravel pit.

• Jeers to me for donating to a trail system that is banning dogs. Extra Jeers to the crummy dog owners who ruin it for the rest of us.

• Cheers to WS Legacy Trail planners for disallowing dogs and horses on the trail. While multi-use suggests all are welcome, it’s just not safe to share a narrow pathway with unpredictable furry friends. We have acres and acres and acres of beautiful, natural pathways to share with our dogs and horses. I hope there is never an altercation between four-legged and wheeled users on this beautiful resource for the valley.

• Cheers to Mr. Al Miller for always having a good ol’ grin on your face, and a wonderfully positive attitude. You make us all smile, and I just want you to know that. Keep up the hard work, you’re great.

• CHEERS to Lost Bell Singers for the wonderful presentation at Edgewater Radium Auxiliary Halloween Tea – very entertaining – enjoyed by all who supported us by attending. Who can forget the chicken song? Cheers to one and all and cock-a-doodle-do!

• Big Cheers to Scott from Invermere Electric. Such a kind guy, on and off the ice!

• Cheers to the Hydro heroes who rescued the seagull hanging from a wire by a fish hook. Jonathon still living seagull.

• Cheers to the health fair with information and healthy snacks of raw veggies and fruit. But Jeers to the free candies, miniature chocolate bars and raffle items with sugar and caffeine, not healthy.

Cheers & Jeers
