Cheers & Jeers August 1st

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to Ole Westergard of WAA Construction for once again coming to our rescue at our house in Radium. You are a very competent, friendly gentleman and have been a very big help to us.

Cheers to Cali for delivering beautiful snapdragons to Columbia House.

Cheers and Happy Birthday this week to Bronwen. I know how much you love this paper, so now you’re in it! Much appreciation for being such an amazing person and friend!

Jeers to the increasing amount of rude visitors in the valley this year! I have seen and heard of more cases of verbal abuse towards workers than ever, and stores are constantly being left a mess by customers. The people here in town work hard to give visitors a positive experience. Sad to see that manners and general kindness are longer important to the general public.

Belated Great Big CHEERS to the two Princes who live on 15th St and 10A Ave. They combined forces to mow down all the weeds which are rampant on an unused parcel of land. What has been a neglected right of way for years, now looks mainly under control. Your good work is greatly appreciated, past and present by your neighbour.

A big Cheers to the patient, cheerful, hardworking volunteers at the valley thrift stores both in Invermere and in Radium!

Cheers to my sister who saved not one but TWO men from drowning in Lake Windermere last week (separate incidents). Very grateful she noticed their distress and knew how to safely rescue them in deep water.

Cheers to Ray, Pam, Sheila, John and Willa from the Invermere Pickleball Club for organizing the recent tournament at Pineridge. Because of you we had fun staying out of the kitchen and not getting pickled. Much appreciated!

Cheers to Gwen Stewart for being such a dependable, loyal, efficient and very patient homecare worker. You were a big help in my husband’s recovery.

A huge Cheers to Justin and Trevor at GeePa Marine, for going above and beyond on our boat repair. Your professional manor, and service was top notch.

Our heartfelt Cheers to John and Greg of the Windermere Fire and Rescue Department and Breanne and staff from Columbia River Paddle for going above and beyond to rescue us when our canoe capsized half way to Radium. It was a long ordeal for everyone involved – but we are finally warm, dry and happy to be alive!

A huge CHEERS to Megan, Martin, and the staff of Allium Cafe at Pynelogs for helping to make our 50th Anniversary such a memorable event. The food and venue couldn’t have been more perfect for our gathering of family and friends.

Cheers to the Hungry Rooster during Market on Main for giving a black Lab a dish of ice water. Us animals must stick together.

CHEERS to my hubby of 50 years for being such a romantic, thoughtful man. I hereby promise never to burn your underwear ever again.

CHEERS to the awesome staff at Sonshine Day Children’s Centre. You rock!

Cheers to the District of Invermere for clearing away the old community hall. The view of the July 1st fireworks were epic!

Jeers to nosy neighbours who complain about anything and everything. We love you, but enough is enough!

Cheers & Jeers
