Cheers & Jeers October 3rd

Highs and lows of the Valley this week

Jeers to loud ATVs. If you need to wear hearing protection while driving, I suppose you can’t even imagine how you are disturbing wildlife and annoying your neighbours.

Cheers to all the Albertans and Saskatchewanites that travelled to be at the Columbia Valley Classics car show. It was a fantastic car show. Congrats to the organizers.

Cheers to Krista at CIBC for your patience in dealing with a senior who was a bit confused by the intricacies of banking. I was waiting in line and saw you patiently help him through the process. As well, your ready smile and quick laughter are infectious. You always make my day when I come in.

Jeers to the disgusting amount of recyclable materials being thrown into the Edgewater Dump. It’s time to start caring and doing your part! Hiding it in the ground doesn’t make it disappear for future generations.

Big Cheers to Dixie and the crew at Coy’s Golf Course for the delicious meal served to the Fairmont Ladies Club last Wednesday. The service and food were just GREAT, and the door prizes just added to the FUN! Much appreciated girls!

Cheers to Phil, Clare and Charlotte Marshall from the Cabin for generously donating proceeds from their sales to the Panorama Firefighters Association. Cheers for being a hub and the pub for this community!

Cheers to Heather at Root 93 Dental for providing exceptional care to her clients and going above and beyond in meeting their needs!

A big Cheers to all the employees who make Invermere streets gorgeous all summer then let people pick them before frost does. You do such beautiful work.

Cheers to the several owners of Collector cars who came by in the afternoon of Friday Sept 20th to show off their cars to the Columbia House residents. They enjoyed the time outside and to see the beautiful cars. Much appreciation for taking the time out to visit the facility.

Big Cheers to the staff at Windermere Valley Golf Course for always being so friendly and accommodating to the Unruly ladies’ golf group. Extra Cheers to Kari and her kitchen staff for the Great food and service. Special Cheers to Scott and Michael for the excellent lessons, golf tips and your patience and encouragement. You made the Unrulies’ season a positive and fun experience!

Cheers to Coleman at Syndicate Boardshop for fixing the paddle of a kayak lady in distress. Your willingness to help her out was greatly appreciated.

Huge, loud gratitude filled Cheers to all of the businesses who donated to the raffle baskets at the Windermere Carnival. It was greatly appreciated!

A heartfelt Cheers to Sobeys for their generous donation. Our Terry Fox Run at Sonshine daycare was a huge success, in part due to your help. The healthy snacks were a huge hit for all the kids!

Cheers to Mrs. O’Sullivan for her long commitment to bringing music into the lives of the children of the Valley!

A big Cheers to Jessie, Amy, Jackie and the other home care workers at the Invermere Hospital who so patiently fought with my very uncooperative veins for the past 5 weeks while getting Iron infusions and for getting me into Emerg when you spotted something not right. Gotta love you girls!

Cheers to David for taking the time out of his day to let me know about my flat tire and then changing it with us. It really was amazing, we will pay it forward!
