Cheers & Jeers July 11th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to Big “Al” of Total Heating for a quick response to the failure of our heat and cool system. Quick estimate and system back on line the next day at a fair price.

Cheers to the Neilson girls at the A&W! You’re are always so friendly and efficient ..even on a busy long weekend. You totally rock and display true customer service! You are appreciated!!

Jeers to the gliders and tow planes that just kept roaring around, hard to have a family BBQ when you’re around.

Cheers to Colleen Roberts for all the effort to have a welcoming appearance all the way into our town instead of an industrial construction mishmash that doesn’t make a good first impression. Too bad more can’t be done to improve the look and feel of the crossroads.

Cheers to everyone at Windermere beach on Canada day. For standing still as the momma doe collected her twin fawns from the Island. A magical moment. Oh What a place we


Our sincere Cheers and gratitude to Travis Cameron for both the ride down the hill and returning our forgotten backpack. Cheers to you Doug and your grandkids

Jeers to the half-full beer can tossed into the library book return bin during the grad banquet last week and ruined several library books. Find a recycling bin next time.

Cheers to the Legion and everyone that helped with the parade. It was a great day.

Jeers to the people who set up tents on already crowded Canada Long Weekend beaches. Jeers for the view of the back of your tent.

Cheers to the thoughtful person that returned my cellphone, ID and CC’s to the RCMP from what I thought was the bottom of Lake Enid! Other than a couple of Rainbow trout selfies, I have no other finder information. Really appreciate the effort 🙂 If you can believe it, I plugged it in and it works!

Big Cheers to Dan and Hugh for being troopers on the BBQ’s at the Legion during the Monsoon! Great Job! Cheers to all the volunteers, adults and kids who never let the rain….Rain on their Parade! Cheers to everyone for the great community spirit!

A huge Life Saving Cheers to Christy Way of Spruce Grove RV Park for using her Respiratory Therapist skills on Canada Day. On that day, a male rafter was enjoying the spirit of the day and became unresponsive and was in respiratory distress. Christy came on the scene moments later, established and maintained an open airway, provided oxygen, and assisted the ambulance service by continuing to provide her medical skills throughout transport to Invermere Hospital. She also offered support and assistance to the hospital personnel once the patient had been transferred into their care. Kudos for saving this man’s life!

Big Cheers to Patrick C for all the fun drum circles he’s hosting. From drumming events at the farmers market, to Pynelogs on Monday, to the porch parties at a music festival, all are an energy raising ruckus that leaves the participants and crowds smiling, feeling thrilled to be part of such joyful way to spend an hour!

Cheers to Lisa Tenta for staying late every week to be there for me!

Heartfelt cheers to Jim for the homemade Yard Dice. Columbia Garden Village will be letting the good times roll!

Cheers to RDEK staff and Area G Rep Gerry Wilkie for the wonderful reception at Edgewater Hall last Tuesday. And thanks to all the friends and neighbours who came out to share my moment as Volunteer of the year. I know many volunteers who do much more and deserve this recognition much more than I do. Nevertheless, cheers for honouring me, and for drawing attention to the fact that volunteers are essential to keep all our civic, social, cultural, recreational, environmental, charitable, and public safety services rolling. I’m pleased to be able to help out when I can.

Cheers to Mike and Scott at Windermere Golf Course, and to Brian, Dennis and Scott at Copper Point Golf Club for coaching and supporting the DTSS Golf Team this season. You guys rock!

Giant Cheers from the decorating committee for the 2019 Grads to Canfor for their donation of the beautiful lumber, Home Hardware for donating the building materials and Bobby Wrights DTSS Wood class for building the gorgeous lighted panels that decorated the Columbia Valley Centre for an enchanting prom.

Cheers to all the truckers who blow their air horns at the children lined up at the fence. As they are asking, you are replying you are making their day. It’s the little things in life that bring happiness.

Cheers to all the Palliative and Home Care staff at the Invermere Hospital. The residents of this Valley are so lucky to have such caring and professional people walking us through our most troubling of times.

Jeers to the event on the 6th. I’m happy that lot of people enjoyed the night but please consider the neighbourhood. Playing loud music after 10pm was not so cool I was in bed had to work early in the morning next day.

Huge Cheers to Chris Seitz – the Valley needs more people like you!

Huge cheers to Tim and Galen from CDL flooring for the excellent job laying our floor!

Jeers to fanny packs disguised as purses.

A huge baseball cheers to Jon & Justine for donating the “Mitt” size flowers! They were very beautiful and appreciated by the CGV residents and staff.

Cheers to Sobeys for having the most beautiful fresh cut flowers in town. They wrap them beautifully and they are sooo inexpensive!
