Cheers & Jeers August 15th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to Jason of Woody’s Plumbing – First Class Service from a First Class gentleman.

Cheers to Tyler Brockmeyer and his staff for the super job you did of drywalling in our house. You showed up on time every day, did a very professional job and cleaned up after you left. We would definitely hire you again.

Jeers to the decisions made this year that are more dangerous than ever with the new road and you sure accomplished your goal of slowing down the traffic (to a complete stop for kms). On a new note, why close off 1 of 2 entrance/exits points to the access road across from the hospital. Was there a problem before? What happens now if there is an emergency at the North end and now the South end is blocked and locked? Good work guys!

Cheers to the very thoughtful person who recognised my cane and brought it back to me. Much appreciated!

Cheers to all the amazing people I know and never met before who helped with my difficult, long move on the hottest day of the week. Whether you were on crutches, facing health/body part challenges, or tired after working, you slugged it out with your generosity of time, food, muscle, brains, and kind encouragement-how blessed can I be to live in such a paradise of great community minded souls?

Cheers to Jake at Lakeview Manor for all his kindness for all the work he does for the residents and the Manor. He is just a fabulous man with a huge heart.

Cheers to great neighbor who found and returned my glasses! Cheers to the Pioneer at the heart of our community for making that possible…. returned while the paper was still hot from the press.

Jeers to communities that accept FireSmart funding but do not enforce FireSmart guidelines.

Huge Cheers to all the volunteers and organizers of Loop the Lake 2019. For showing up in the rain to provide us with water, encouragement, and snacks. Cheers to all the runners that participated! Great effort. See you all next year!

Cheers to the Columbia Valley Pioneer for initiating the “Climate Changer” series. We all need to start thinking and talking about climate change. Most importantly, we need to take action and have hope for the future!

Cheers to the Calgary couple who pulled over in KNP and offered me assistance after my vehicle battery lost its charge. It was a split decision you made rounding a corner and you made my unexpected predicament/evening more tolerable. I hope you had a great time at the wedding you attended. I will naturally be paying it forward.

Cheers to Therese and Mary for listening and doing all that you did to help out when asked. You are truly saints and I will be forever grateful.

Cheers to Woody’s Plumbing for the excellent service you give to us. You return phone calls (even on a holiday weekend), and follow-up with a visit to our home to check on the problem. For sure, you are the best plumbers in the Valley.
