Cheers & Jeers February 15th

Highs and lows of the Valley this week

• Cheers to the stranger in the No Frills parking lot on Saturday that helped me open the hood of my Jeep so I could refill my washer fluid!

• Cheers to the District of Invermere for their donation to the boys hockey team headed for Kitimat. We look forward to your continued support of other sporting groups and their fundraising efforts now that the precedent has been set.

• Cheers to all who have been coming out to support RCL Branch #199. Members and Guests. A special Cheers to all the volunteers who step up to the plate to make things happen. Lastly big Cheers to Ron D. for volunteering the time and materials to x the unsightly hole in the men’s washroom. Very appreciated!

• Cheers to Susan at Valley Hair! She’s friendly, professional and always gives me the haircut that I ask for!

• Cheers to Steve at Sobeys for contributing to the annual Valentine’s fundraiser at The Edge Youth Center. Your kind generosity is appreciated by Edgewater’s youth and our community.

• Cheers to Betty Hope for sewing Ice Bag covers for the EMP students! Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

• Cheers to Brandi, Parker, Josh and Seth; the Columbia Valley Rockies who came to visit Sonshine Preschool. We appreciate you taking time to talk to the children and play hockey with them. You were the highlight of our day!

• Cheers to Dave from Selkirk Repair for going above and beyond for the repair of our dishwasher. Much appreciated!

• Jeers to speeders in or near the school zones. Speeding cost a small deer his life on Thursday Feb. 8th. Fines for speeding can be $196 to $253. Jeers to the person who hit the deer and did not stop.

• Cheers to Zyzairia Stevens for volunteering at Windermere Elementary School during your exam break. All of the staff appreciate the help that you gave everyone!

• A great big Cheers to everyone who has helped me cross the street and waved at me. It’s greatly appreciated and why I love this community.
