Cheers & Jeers March 8th

Valley highs and lows of the week

Cheers to “Raise the Roof” musical fundraiser held Feb. 24th for a great night of entertaining toe tapping music provided by Murray and Kevin, Eisley, Anne, Barry, Dorothy, Ian, Patricia. Cheers to the incredible jazz musicians: Jane and Paul. Because of all of you we raised $1640 towards the Ensenada Building Project this March in Mexico. Cheers to those attending for their support.

Jeers to the person who Jeered local businesses for being closed on BC Family Day. Did it ever occur to you that those people have families too? And it makes sense because winter months in this valley are brutal on small retail stores. Next year it’s all on the same day, so no more reason to complain!

Cheers to our Juniper Heights Snow and Tow Angels. You guys are great neighbours – love living next to you!

Cheers to the woodworkers who made the bench for the Whiteway. It is in the perfect spot for people to take a break and enjoy the view. Much appreciated for adding to what makes our community great!

Grateful and well deserved Cheers to Lorene Keitch, editor of the Pioneer, for her take on the situation between BC and Alberta. I have not read, in all the other coverage of this battle, a more clear picture of what is happening here. Pissing match indeed!

Cheers to Current Edge Electric. You guys went above and beyond to help with my furnace. You guys are the best!

Cheers to the Local View for contributing to the Wilmer Community Club’s Bingo event!!

Jeers to me for neglecting to add you to our thank you ad in the Pioneer! My apologies for the omission as it’s businesses like yours that make this community so great to live in!

Jeers to fellow dog owners in Athlamer that think it’s OK or don’t know that their dog is barking all day long. Yes, our furry friends bark to alert us when someone or something is nearby but that is very different than a dog barking constantly. Incessant barking can be a sign of stress, boredom or just a bad habit. Please don’t let your dog bark for hours on end; find a solution that will make him (and the neighbourhood) happier.

Jeers to unnecessary drama. Seriously people, grow up!

Cheers to all the kind people who have donated wool and yarn to Happy Hands at Columbia Gardens. We have received lots of donations and will put them to good use. Very much appreciated!

Cheers to Terry Curly for his pro Canadian letter last week. Facts and common sense above politics and platitudes!

Cheers and congratulations to the Rockies on their playoff series win against Creston. GO ROCKIES GO!!

Jeers to all the Christmas decorations still up everywhere in town! Quite sure it’s over!

Cheers to Manny Osborne- Paradis for visiting Windermere Valley Childcare Society. My child (and I am sure many others) really enjoyed your visit. The pictures of the kids with your “gear” on are very sweet. Much appreciation for taking the time to do this.
