Cheers & Jeers June 27th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to all the volunteers who made Family Fishing at Lake Lillian a great event.

Cheers to Vince Woodward at Autowyze. His honesty and expertise, June 3, saved us from a tow back to Calgary and a potentially large repair bill. He will now be our “go to” mechanic!

Cheers to Kendyl, Dale, Wyatt and Adam of Hart Roofing for the excellent work you did re-pairing our roof. You promptly returned our phone calls, ordered the materials and within two days completed the job. Super service!

A heartfelt CHEERS to the man who paid for myself and my friends’ breakfast in Huckleberry’s on the morning of Monday June 10th. You did it so casually and didn’t even want the attention after, it was so genuine. I’d had a really hard week and that morning had just topped it off until your kind gesture. It meant a lot to the both of us. We will pay it forward.

A huge Cheers to Windermere Elementary School P.A.C. for providing our Leadership Club with a delicious pizza lunch. You are so supportive of our students and teachers. We really appreciate all you do!

Jeers to the person in Windermere who put the ugly sign up on Park Dr. Your accusations and intimidations aren’t helping your cause. Perhaps a “slow down – kids at play” sign would work better for getting your point across rather than alienating your neighbours!

Cheers to Pike Contracting for clearing away the old fencing materials from the Conrad Kain Park at the Wilmer hall. It’s people like you who make our community so fantastic!

Cheers to the Library for putting on awesome STEAM programs for our kids after school. The kids created amazing art projects using shaving cream and food colouring!

Cheers to the amazing volunteers that made the 2019 Grad so special! The Grad Class of 2019 are an amazing bunch! Cheers!

Cheers to whomever recognized Teresa’s hard work at Rona when it comes to her unwavering cus-tomer service. I would like to second that motion, extending my appreciation and special Cheers to her as well. Keep up your hard work and your indelible personality!

CHEERS to all the people who donated your wonderful treasures for the ICAN garage sale this year. Without you, our event would not have been a success! Much appreciated!

Cheers to all the helpers, spouses, and friends who made the 2019 ICAN garage sale a success. Despite the rain, we managed fair weather until the end. A special Cheers for Brian Morton who provided us with coffee and sandwiches. Cheers for the hard work and planning by Teryl Hemmelgarn. A good time was had by all!

CHEERS to Bev Deck for all your support with the ICAN 2019 Garage Sale. You go above and beyond every year, and we love you, Bev!

Huge Jeers to the person who complained about the new street markings going into town. After having hundreds of people rudely passing us on the inside for 50 years, now some control. Hopefully the same could happen on the hill out of town, where people cover my beautiful cars with gravel passing over the speed limit.

Cheers & Jeers
