Cheers & Jeers January 11th

Highs and lows for Valley residents this week

• Cheers to Rainbow Restoration for delivering and setting up their beautiful, bright and festive Christmas display for our Christmas concert at Windermere Elementary. We appreciate you for being a great example of generosity and community spirit for all of our students and their families.

• Cheers to people who help me across the street, tell me jokes and just want to chat. It makes my day. Cheers to all the wonderful people in our Valley.

• Cheers to the valiant efforts of Natalie and Lily for climbing to the top of McIntosh Way in search of my lost cell phone! You two are my lucky charms and I couldn’t ask for better team mates! Sending much love and appreciation your way!

• Jeers to the lack of snow removal downtown! It would be nice if people could park downtown without stepping out into 2 feet of snow! Seriously!

• Cheers to Panache Interiors for having complete wheelchair access at the back parking lot and having ordered handrails out front three months ago.

• Cheers to the District of Invermere for clearing the snow and making it safe to get from the street to the sidewalk!!

• Jeers to the person who put in the Jeers about people who don’t like dogs. Some people have a good reason for not liking them. I for one was attacked years ago by a dog and have not liked them ever since. Dog owners need to control their dogs and clean up after them!

• Cheers to Chris and Anne-Marie at Fairmont Ski hill for being so accommodating to the birthday party on one of their busiest days of the year.

• A very BIG CHEERS to Staceym at Fusion Wellness Spa for the fantastic massage on my hips!! Stacey made my Christmas holiday so much better!! She’s amazing.

• Jeers to the district for not cleaning the roads at all in Athalmer. I am 11 years old and I know this is wrong so get it dealt with or someone will get in an accident.

• Cheers to all the TIOW participants who have continued with their exercise regimens long after they completed the program. Wishing you continued good health in 2018.
