Cheers & Jeers Pioneer September 21st

Cheers for support; jeers for a fire during fire ban

  • Sep. 20, 2017 2:30 a.m.

• Cheers to the lady with Parks for calling me an ambulance. Much appreciated. All is well and I learned a valuable lesson. It is special when people in the community look out for others.

• Cheers to the gentleman who paid for my groceries at AG Valley Foods on Thursday September 7th. Much appreciated!

• Cheers to James Morsette of Turf N Timber for your kindness and generosity. I am most grateful!

• Jeers… To the new Community Centre for the inadequate design of its wheelchair accessible washrooms. Not only are they incredibly small and hard to manoeuvre in, there is no family or separate washroom available when an opposite sex caregiver is required to assist. It makes for a very stressful outing.

• Cheers to Rachel for being an incredible co-worker. You will be missed.

• Big Cheers to the amazing communities that we live in. The amount of support, donations, texts, calls, thoughts and prayers we received during a difficult medical emergency has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated. An extra Big Cheers to Jolaine Undershute, Carole Timmerman, Kayla McLean, Sophie Timothy and Noreen Madden for going above and beyond with fundraisers. We are truly blessed. Words can’t express our appreciation for all of you and everything you’ve done!

• Cheers to Farmers’ Market organizers – Invermere community stalwarts Bill and Becky, and Fairmont’s 13-year-old genius, Ryan. They all combine wisdom, discretion, people skills and more to anchor superb summer-long celebrations of community richness.

• Cheers to Katherine, Nathan, and Conan for their quick response to the fire in Spillimacheen. You guys are awesome!

• Cheers to golfers who make the pilgrimage to St. Andrews, Scotland. Jeers to those who choose not to play when they are there.

• Big Cheers to Raylene Oram for all the hard work and endless hours of volunteering she puts into many groups in our valley!

• Super Cheers to the C U Wednesday Golf Group at Copper Point for their more than generous donation to the Columbia House Enhancement Society! Very much appreciated!

• Cheers and a tip of the golf sombrero to Larry Ballard who once again guided The Resort’s men’s club with cogency, verve and an evil drop of schadenfreude.

• Cheers to the person who Jeered the ones smoking pot during movie nights. It is especially harmful to children as it affects the brain. No one should have to put up with it if it is not their choice to breathe in the second-hand smoke.

• A Huge Cheers to everybody who gives me great compliments and comments. Makes me want to get out more and keep walking and living it up. Much appreciated!

• Jeers to the line “ The bear bites the dust”..It’s still a life.

• Jeers to people who do not clean up their apples and garbage and end up getting a bear put down. They would not show up if you kept things clean and did not tempt them.

BIG Cheers to all the volunteers, our Friends of Rotary, who helped us successfully fundraise at the Car Show! We couldn’t have done this without you! Your effort and time will help us with more projects for our community.

• Cheers to Bob and Heather for their amazing dedication to all soccer players of Invermere in hosting the Sunday Night Soccer Pick-Up games for all age groups! It was fantastic having U8 to U18s out there playing soccer together! That’s community.

• Jeers to the group surrounding a wood campfire on Thursday evening September 14th at Canyon Campground in Radium. There is still a FIRE ban on as far as I know.

• Jeers to the people who enter our local hot springs pools without showering first, a requirement that is clearly stated on numerous signs. This isn’t just about respect for others, it’s a hygiene and public health issue.

• Jeers to the lowlife who found my grey wallet outside of the post office, leaving it behind but not before helping yourself to ALL the cash inside. I work incredibly hard and countless hours for every dollar I earn. You should learn this principal of hard work. Karma WILL come back to bite you, and when it does, just remember you deserve it.

• Hip hip hurray Cheers to the fabulous folks at Ivy House and the Columbia Gardens for the excellent care of our Mom, Marg Nicholson, these past few years.

• Big Cheers shout out to Dr. Ross for her many years of wonderful care for our Mom, Marg Nicholson.

Cheers & Jeers
