Cheers & Jeers November 14

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to Megan at Mountain Hub for sharing your knowledge. One casual marketing tip from you last spring will pay for our family holiday in 2020. We’re so lucky to have your expertise in our Valley.

Cheers to Stan Harrison for picking up all the windfall at All Saints Church in Edgewater. Well done!

Cheers to Darlene, the butcher at Radium Mountainside Market, for preparing the most delicious standing-rib roast for our company. The meat was so tender, and everyone had second helpings. Five Star dining for sure!

Cheers to Rhonda Konchak, You are a great person and mother, I feel so blessed to know you! I always look forward to medical appointments just to see you!

Jeers to Christmas decorations going up before Remembrance Day.

Cheers to my family and friends that surprised me with all the flowers and festivities for my 80th birthday. I am so grateful to have you all in my life.

Jeers to all the businesses who sell Christmas items before Remembrance Day.

Cheers and thank you to Blair and the staff of our great Invermere Library for hosting ‘To The Manor Born’. Thank you to everyone who attended.

Cheers to the new Arrowhead Brewery Patio. Best micro brewery pub patio this side of the Kootenay River!

Cheers to the deer properly using the Invermere bridge sidewalk early Thursday morning. Good job!

Jeers to the scoundrel that stole my iPod from the skate park Nov 8. Please return to the Laird office if you have any empathy. Distraught ten year old skateboarder.

Cheers to Greg Geiger with Columbia Concrete for sponsoring my son Harley to compete in a Five Elements kickboxing tournament in Calgary. Without you, it wouldn’t have been possible. P.S. You do great concrete.

Cheers & Jeers
