Cheers & Jeers October 24th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to Crazy Soles for quality informative service that you just can’t buy online topped off with positive discussion and a smile.

Cheers to Bob at Majestic U-Brew for being so generous to the Wilmer Community Club! It is people like you that make this valley so great!

Double Cheers to Emily, James and Ian of the Chisel Peak Blues Band, who ran Groundswells stage and sound, and performed at Saturday’s 10 Years of Thankfulness event. You did an amazing job and we really appreciate the time, energy and enthusiasm you gave to our event.

Big Cheers to the manager of BMO. I was going by the bank at 6:30 a.m., and there she was at her desk hard at work! She’s always greeting folks with a big welcoming smile, and a joy to see! Great work ethic!

Cheers to 911 Emergency services, RCMP (Cst. Peggy), Edgewater Volunteer Fire Dept., BC Hydro, and Scott McLean, for outstanding services and quick return of power after a pickup knocked out power on Upper Hewitt Road October 15th at 2:30 a.m.

Cheers to the Schutter family and Taynton Bay for the super fun community day held a few weeks ago. What a great way to offer the kids outdoor fun on a farm and raise money for a great cause. Much appreciated!

Cheers to Cindy for always answering my questions about my dogs. You are so helpful!

Cheers to the Valley Fitness Centre for giving me some free gym time to help me recover from my injury.

Huge Cheers to Brittany for the mom and tot fitness classes. It’s such a great way to get back into exercise – fun people, great instructor and the challenge to push myself. I feel great because of it!

HUGE CHEERS to Marlis and Melva for making LOTS of Apple Pies again, and everyone who donates items to make the Pies And everyone who buys the pies to support the Upkeep of All Saints Church, and Cemetery in Edgewater. What a great Valley we live in.

Jeers to the person who dumped a deer carcass on Westside Road, just on the outskirts of Wilmer. Surely it could have been disposed of more responsibly!

Jeers to the person who shot the bear in Wilmer.

Cheers to Shawn and his team at LBO Autobody in Invermere for their miraculous work in repairing and restoring our 2009 truck. It now looks like a 2019 truck! More Cheers for the excellent customer service we experienced.

Jeers to the people overheard at the Mt. Swansea trailhead boasting to each other about how fast they just drove Highway 93 through Kootenay National Park. People like you, who drive at 120 – 130 kms per hour, not only put the rest of us highway users in jeopardy but are also the reason so many animals are killed and maimed along the highway.

Cheers & Jeers
