Cheers & Jeers September 5th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Cheers to the handsome stranger who was next in line to me at Valley Foods, who secretly paid for my groceries! He escaped before I realized what was happening. I didn’t even have a chance to tell him how appreciative I was! Did I remind him of his grandmother? What a lovely gesture and what a beautiful town we live in.

A big Cheers to the 46 volunteers who helped put on our 2019 Columere Park Family BBQ, enjoyed by almost 300 residents and friends. Your willingness to step up and help is one of the reasons why Columere is such a great place to live in. Special Cheers to Fairmont’s Mountainside Market and Coulee Brewery for your generous contributions and support of our annual summer event.

Jeers to me for getting testy in the lineup at the Thrift store. Cheers to people who play fair and get in line at the back.

A great big CHEERS to Jill, Lauren and the Leaders of the Adventure Radium program. Your leadership and fine service delivery throughout the summer for all the young attendees is deeply appreciated. Your efforts make this program the success that it is. Well done!

Cheers to Max, Bucky, and Al for moving our 3,500 lb box into place around a tight corner at our house. Grateful for your expertise, professionalism and superpowers. You are truly masters of your trade!

Big Cheers to RFE ALARMS for coming to my rescue yet again. Cheers to the installation of a water detector, I was saved from a very wet basement. The alarm sounded and I did not think of water but help arrive very quickly to shut off the source of the problem. Even if I had not been at home, RFE could have accessed the house and taken care of the leak. Should I buy RFE a sump pump for Christmas as a gift to my guardian angels?

Cheers to AQUAIR WATER CO for responding quickly to my plaintive cry for help when the old Reverse Osmosis system went down from exhaustion. A new control system is in place and if only the same could be done for we old timers!

Cheers to the staff at Radium Hot Springs for rescuing my relatively new swim trunks that were absent-mindedly left behind in the men’s locker room. The return of them is appreciated.

Cheers to Mike for taking us along Sailing! We had a blast!

Cheers to the downtown spicy Mexican tacos. More please!

Cheers to Arnold and Garette Brockmeyer for helping me out when my quad broke down up by Lake Enid. Much appreciated
