Cheers & Jeers

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

CHEERS to Catherine and Cris at Ozzie’s Amusements in Windermere for hosting our members to a fun afternoon of go-carts and mini-golf. The go-carts were a first for some of us. We all had a great time!

Huge Cheers to Teresa at Rona for her amazing service and ability with operating that Green crane truck! Your unforgettable smile and bubbly personality when arriving on my job site is much appreciated, you make all of our days!

Jeers to all the businesses in town that don’t have baby change tables in the men’s washrooms and only in the women’s. When my daughters go out with their father, where is he supposed to change them?

Big Cheers to Jessie at Redstreak Campground for all your amazing help!

Cheers to the refreshingly stable and community focused leadership at the DOI Council since the last election. How nice to read about progress and good ideas getting done .

Huge CHEERS to Lori at Columbia Valley Sign Artists for making our friend and brother’s final resting place extra special.

Jeers to people who don’t respect personal boundaries when bumping into someone on their private, personal time and proceeding to accost them with questions related to work. When people are in the vegetable aisle with their kids, this is rude and inappropriate. More than happy to meet you during my next business hours but if I’m not at my desk, then respect my boundaries and leave me alone.

Huge Valley Cheers to Chris Corey! Your customer service is outstanding at Home Hardware. Welcome back.

Jeers to the traffic planners in town for turning Athlmere into a single lane bottle neck. Just watch how big the backups get during summer traffic. You shouldn’t try to fix what isn’t broken!

Cheers for Nicky Brown for donating a sewing machine to Ivy House. We will put it to good use making projects. A trip down memory lane for our tailors and seamstresses.

Cheers to Peter Hale for the Tomato plants – with a variety of choices- for Columbia Garden Village and Ivy House residents. A few of the gardeners assisted with the planting, and we look forward to the tomato fruits these plant bare.

Cheers to Brisco Store & Greenhouse for supplying two beautiful potted flowers to the Columbia & Ivy Houses for father’s day from the ERHA. They will be greatly appreciated!

A huge pirouette of Cheers to Miss Melyssa and Miss Meesh of United dance, you have brought a huge love of all forms of dance to the valley. You are greatly going to be missed. Good Luck to Miss Melyssa as she moves to Kelowna to be with her husband to start a new adventure together. Good Luck to Miss Meesh as she works at Hopkins Harvest. We will miss you.

Cheers to le Westergard and Tjiosha of WAA Construction for their combined, endless efforts to build a first-class dam at the ranch. Their work ethics extend from early in the morning until late in the evening. They make a great team. It is amazing what you have accomplished and are still striving to do more. Gratitude is the best form of courtesy.

Cheers to the Museum and Farm to Table group for the wonderful tea and strawberry shortcake social on the weekend! Cheers also for the superb displays at the museum, go check them out!

CHEERS to everyone who volunteered, organized, supported, donated to, and attended Columbia Valley Pride 2019. We are so grateful for the support we have received from our beautiful Valley.

Cheers to Tracy Shandrowsky our local locksmith for speedy and sure service with a smile. Great job Tracy!

Cheers to the very kind couple who delivered ice cream treats to the pilot and passengers on our Cycling Without Age trishaw ride. You made our already great day even better.

Cheers to Ken and Cheri Hann for the fun boat rides and Father’s Day Brunch. So appreciated!

Cheers to Home Hardware for sending two great people to fix the floor for my new washing machine.
