Cheers & Jeers September 26th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Big Cheers to all the volunteers at the Seniors’ Lodge in Invermere. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and were entertained by Dave’s beautiful film of his travels.

Jeers to last week’s Jeers about your poor bruised expensive fruit and its handling. You have no idea how exhausting the service industry can be. May all your problems be so small.

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. Also your ready smile and quick laughter are infectious. You always make my day when I come in.

A HUGE Cheers to all who braved the Sunday morning rain to participate in the 39th TERRY FOX RUN, to honour his memory and the work the Foundation is doing, also to honour the memory of a loved one who was lost to cancer or support someone who is fighting cancer. Cheers to all the volunteers who promote, set up and work the RUN.

Jeers to the Toby Bench resident complaining about the adaptive trail work being done at the Lillian Lake trail network. This trail work will allow persons with mobility restrictions a safe opportunity to freely recreate on Crown land.

Cheers to the 911 response team! On August 29th, this professional and caring team responded immediately. The 911 operator stayed on the phone with me until paramedics arrived. The paramedics quickly assessed the situation and whisked us off to Invermere hospital’s ER. More Cheers to the Invermere Hospital Emergency Room team! Cheers to all for taking stress out of a stressful situation!

Cheers to the gentleman that kindly pointed out that there was a large puddle of oil under my car last Friday. Jeers to me for falling prey to the Dunning-Kruger effect as I confidently declared that it couldn’t be my car that was leaking oil.

A Big Cheers to Dixie Coy! Taking the time to deliver beautifully grown fresh floral arrangements to residents of The Valley “Yes it is a Great Day at Coy’s .”

Huge Cheers to the Windermere PAC for organizing a fantastic fall carnival, and Cheers to all the volunteers who made it possible! Special shout out to the Rockies players for not just running the booths, but encouraging the kids, being patient and having fun with them while you volunteered.

A BIG CHEERS to Richard and Fred Kinsey at K5 Mechanical, the way you handled our case was honorable and professional. The truck has never run so well. It is so great to have a trustworthy mechanic. Much appreciated, you guys are the salt of the earth.

Cheers to the new pizza joint in Athalmer. I like it, I really like it

Cheers & Jeers
