Cheers & Jeers November 30th

Reader’s best and worst of the week

• Cheers to Wildsight for all drinks on tap and no plastic cups at the lm fest! They’re really walking the talk!

• CHEERS – THREE OF THEM! – to the wonderful contractors and volunteers who have worked long and hard on the upgrade to Edgewater’s Frank’s Rink and the construction of a Recreation Service Building. Your ongoing efforts will be enjoyed by the entire community and beyond.

• A well-deserved Cheers to the Parks Canada Radium Pools staff, both at the front counter and behind the scenes. The work that is ongoing there is long overdue, and many staff members there have had to deal with very ignorant or down-right rude individuals who maybe aren’t aware of the planning it takes to renovate the facility. Keep up the amazing work, we look forward to seeing the finished product!

• A big Cheers to Noelene and Graeme Anderson for welcoming the Special O Club Fit athletes to a Rockies Game on Nov 18th. Everyone had a wonderful time, you made them all feel special.

• Cheers to all of the people who bought 50/50 tickets in support of the Columbia Valley Skating Club at the Winter WonderLand market this past weekend. The generosity of our community is overwhelming and it shows how much people care about supporting our community non- pro t sport organizations.

• Cheers to Nicole Trigg for buying my brother and I drinks when his card didn’t work. You’re the best, seriously!

• Jeers to the woman in the blue suburban who flipped me the bird at the Sobeys lights. I suggest you review your driver’s manual because YOU cut ME o when you turned left in front of me. Right of way goes to the driver going straight.

• Cheers to the man and women who are continuously making baby blankets and hats that will travel with student midwives to Nepal and Uganda. To the newcomer to the project who recently dropped o crocheted blankets to Columbia Garden Village, please give your name to Doris so we can let you know how appreciative we are properly.

• Jeers to the couple who had taken their small barking dog into Marks Work Warehouse on Saturday. The barking was quite disruptive to other shoppers.

• Cheers to the generous donors of land for the Westside Legacy Trail. Let us all celebrate this amazing addition to our valley!

• Cheers to Kyra. The babes, mommas and papas in this valley are lucky to have you. You ROCK!

• A huge Cheers to the volunteers working so hard at the Edgewater skating rink. I went by in the dark the other night and they were still working hard at it. Your dedication and hard work is definitely appreciated by all.

• Cheers to Eric McLauchlin for helping out the Health Unit staff with a tricky challenge. It’s appreciated!
