Chers & Jeers of the Week

Cheers & Jeers October 26th

Jeers to the condition of the Wilmer Westside Road. There are so many potholes and it really needs to be graded.

Classy Cheers to the town and the Legion for putting banners with pictures on the lamp posts honoring the war veterans of past wars. If not for those brave souls ………..

Jeers to all the landlords who are non-pet friendly and way too overpriced…. this is not Whistler.

Cheers to James and everyone at Walker’s Repair Service! Always makes time to help us out – grateful to have such an honest and helpful auto repair service.

Cheers to Jamie at All Dolled Up for the best pedicure and nail art design I ever had all over the world.

Cheers to Jose at the Petit Spa for the best eyelash tint ever.

Cheers to the gentleman who, on Friday afternoon, got out of his truck and tapped on my window to let me know that I was about to lose a wheel on my own truck. There is little doubt in my mind that your act of concern and kindness may have very well saved a life or even lives. I owe you a debt of gratitude and I hope that I get to meet you again to show you my appreciation and shake your hand. With the most sincere appreciation!

Cheers to Copper Point Resort for allowing our kids to do their swim lessons in your outdoor pool. Fantastic community spirit!

Cheers to Miss Garvie, we love your dedication, fun spirit and connection to our kids!

Cheers, Cheers and more Cheers to Jane at Lambert Insurance for always going above and beyond. You are truly an amazing person who lives and breathes customer service. YOU ROCK!

Cheers to the friendly staff at the Pioneer Newspaper!

Cheers to Nicole at Strands Restaurant for all the friendly and exceptional service.

Cheers to Dr. Pat O’Sullivan and Dr. Toni Bartoletti and all the friendly staff. My new dental bridge works well.

Cheers & Jeers
