Cheers & Jeers October 12th

Best and worst of the week

Jeers to the women in the black car who wasn’t looking both ways and almost hit me in my car. I may be an N driver, but I could tell you weren’t paying attention to your surroundings. Please try to focus on all your surroundings before you hurt yourself or someone else.

The biggest Cheers to the Edgewater Recreation Society on the new rink project. They have done an amazing job. The countless hours they’ve put in to make it successful and always keeping everyone informed on ideas and progress. It’s looking awesome!

Cheers to Cortney and the DOI for a great Oktoberfest event. Double Cheers for partnering with Sonshine Children’s Centre and Windermere Valley Childcare Society for the fundraising opportunity. It was a fun event.

Cheers to all the Lake Windermere fall shoreline cleanup volunteers who turned out to help keep our beaches clean last weekend. Together we removed over 30 lbs of trash, 450+ small bits of plastic, and 500+ cigarette butts from the shore! Another Cheers is earned by those who dispose of their cigarette butts in a proper waste disposal, instead of leaving them behind on our public beaches.

Cheers to the thoughtful person who found and returned my lost wallet. There was no name or number to be reached but I am appreciative for you going out of your way to drop it off at my house. Cheers you know who you are.

Jeers to the person who helped themselves to the tree I spent my lunch hour cutting up Friday Sept. 29th on Toby Hill at the highway gravel pit. You must really feel like a man taking a load of wood home you didn’t even cut. Or providing your family with the wood you stole.

Cheers to all the staff of McNeil Mowing and Irrigation for the good service for the season.

Cheers to the kind hearts at Invermere Veterinary Hospital for their care and gentle touch as we helped guide my constant companion of the last 18 years over the rainbow bridge.

A big belated Cheers to the Summit Trail Makers for all their work and particularly for the Hell Roaring Creek Bridge.

Three loud Cheers to the Windermere Elementary School PAC for organizing such a wonderful Carnival for all of the families in the valley to enjoy! Your hard work and dedication to this event is highly appreciated by all of the staff at WES.

Cheers to all the hardworking and dedicated Volunteers at the Invermere Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store. Much appreciated.

Jeers to the new online format of the Pioneer. It is hard to scroll and read. Shame on the big corporate people who wreck small newspapers. Good thing the paper version is still O.K.

Jeers to anyone who steals the DVD movies from the cases at the Thrift Store. They are only a Dollar. When you steal from the Thrift Store you are stealing money that these Hardworking Volunteers donate to our Hospital and Community programs!

A huge shout out Cheers to the Copper Point Wednesday Golf Group for your extremely generous donation to the Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley again this year. To be chosen by your group is an honor and we are very appreciative of the support.

Huge Cheers to Dylan Agnew for helping me out! Much appreciated, YOU ROCK!

Cheers to No Frills and the Thrift Store. Us retired elders scraping by on fixed pensions and people having hard times monetarily can now afford to eat and clothe themselves. Much appreciated, God bless you!

Cheers to the ladies of the front office of The Pioneer Newspaper. YOU GO GIRLS!
