Cheers & Jeers Sept 19th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to Marly for getting school bus services to Castlerock. Your hard work and dedication is much appreciated for getting a valued service. The Castlerock community and families are greatful!

HUGE CHEERS TO JEB, Ken (new), Kelly, Ken and Chopper, Mike, Gary, Geoff, Tylers’ (x2), Justin, Jamie, Eriq and Jack. We LOVE our new home at The Trails. It has been a pleasure dealing with all of you. Much appreciation for all of your hard work!

A Big Cheers to Roxanne, LaRae, Janice C, Penny, and Janice M. who came to Branch #199 and helped prepare hundreds of perogies! Your help is always truly appreciated!

Jeers to me for being rude to the gentlemen on the patio of Copper Point Restaurant on the evening of Sept. 11th. One of you was smoking and I made a comment. There was no one else around and you did put it out. Very appreciated! Our son recently passed away from a lung related disease, despite never having smoked a day in his life. That is no excuse to be rude but is a sensitive issue with me. I am sorry!

Cheers to Milt Deck for helping us out earlier this summer on Westside Road with our truck troubles!

Cheers to the District of Invermere gardeners for making a wonderful, colorful garden and flower arrangement outside the Library entrance.

Jeers to cashiers who don’t handle fruit with care! We spend time to pick out the good, non-bruised ones to have them thrown and bruised at the checkout! Please handle our fruit with care!

A huge Cheers to all the people and all the businesses out there that helped the Brisco Riding Club have another successful year. With all your wonderful donations and contributions, we were able to have hosted many fun events. We tip our hats to all of you!

Jeers to the editor for writing essentially an anti-Trudeau tirade under disguise “resident coordinating political forums.”

Cheers to the flowers around town, they are stunning. You all have done a wonderful job and I swear they get better every year
