Cheers & Jeers October 5th

Best and worst of the week

Cheers to our Mayor Gerry Taft. Sure, everyone makes mistakes but just look at Invermere and all the great things you have ushered in. Wonderful!

Cheers to the wonderful honest person who turned my purse into the staff at Tim Hortons on Saturday September 30th. May your life be blessed.

Massive heartfelt Cheers to Sobeys for your fruit donation after our Little Fox Run at Sonshine Daycare. The kids really enjoyed the bananas, apples and oranges! Your kindness and generosity was so very appreciated!

A huge Cheers to the local businesses who continue to provide employment opportunities for our Special Needs students! We deeply appreciate your efforts in raising the profile of supported employment in Invermere.

Cheers to Dean and Edie and the Canadian Crossfire band! You sure know how to throw a 60th birthday party!

Jeers to the uncourteous drivers who insist on speeding up at the merge lane to screw other drivers trying to merge. Next time try being courteous and let people merge… it actually feels much better than being a jerk.

Cheers to the wonderful friends in the valley for sharing their garden vegetables.

Cheers to all the volunteers at the Thrift Shop.

Jeers to the person who took my grey zip up jacket from A&W. I was only gone for 30 minutes before I realised that I left it there and it was already gone.

Huge Cheers to the Rockies Hockey Team for giving up their entire Sunday to support the Windermere Elementary Community Carnival! Their help was an integral part of making this event happen and making it a success. Much appreciated!

Cheers to Kayja Becker for her incredible sense of community, her brilliant mind and her positive attitude!

Cheers to Terry, my pal, for special catering last Saturday! The homemade buns and your beet relish were delicious.

Cheers to Ross and Ryan for taking the time to help two elderly ladies put wheels back under their wagon. Much appreciated!

A big Cheers to the wonderful people who noticed my flat tire in front of the grocery store. Not only did you air it up for me, you left a note to make sure we stay safe. It made my day and it blew my mind, much appreciated!

Cheers and a very happy 60th birthday to the lovely people renting the Windermere Hall on the weekend; for your assistance on the morning of the carnival and for so graciously letting us invade your space.

Cheers to the Invermere Bakery for the special and friendly staff.

Cheers to the Radium Hot Springs First Responders, who jumped out of bed at 5 a.m. and were at our home to help my husband within 10 minutes. You guys are a local treasure.

Cheers to Britt for being always so kind and helping us.

Cheers to the entire Valley for their incredible community spirit and support for the Carnival at Windermere Elementary. Such a great vibe that day and so awesome to see so many families out enjoying each other’s company!

Cheers to Shannon’s Blinds for the good job on the motorized blinds in our living room.
