Cheers

to the Volunteers at the Radium Hot Springs Public Library. You give of yourself and bring with you your life experiences, compassion, intellect and humour and ask for nothing in return. You volunteer for many different reasons but for whatever reason you volunteer, you provide support, skills, talents and abilities to keep the library a vibrant part of the community. Please know that your efforts are appreciated and valued, each and every day that you volunteer. Your commitment to the Library is much appreciated.

Cheers



to the young lady Saturday morning. You saved my balloon’s life and made my day!! Much appreciated. From the 5 year old who thought the world had ended when her dinosaur balloon flew away.

Cheers



A belated Cheers to Radium Days. A logging show, games, and that climbing wall/slide bouncy castle will make any 40 year old kid jump for joy, (as well as my own kids)!

Jeers



to the person who is likely drinking while behind the wheel and tossing their PBR cans into the ditch on a regular basis this summer along Columbia Lake Road… we are tired of picking them up, so please stop!

Cheers



to Brian Fenerty for keeping us in the loop with his enthusiastic ramblings of our great solar system. You inspired us all to get out there with our pinhole cameras.

Jeers



to our neighbors that let their little dogs bark and bark all the time, and who let their little dogs loose. If other dogs can’t run loose, neither can yours. And keep your dogs quiet, no one likes to hear the constant yapping…it’s really annoying! If people go out back or in the front, and those annoying dogs see them there, they will bark non-stop. Have some respect, not everyone likes to hear yapping from little nuisance dogs. And they poop on the lawn while they run loose, and you don’t clean it up. I don’t think you see it, maybe that’s why…but if they weren’t running loose, then that wouldn’t happen. Don’t let them run loose in the park either. Other dogs can’t, so why would you think that yours can?

Cheers



Huge Cheers to the organizers, and the artists of last Sunday’s Art in the Park. Lovely way to spend some time. Nice, treed venue, talented local vendors, (the Legion food booth was appreciated) , and wonderful musicians on great sounding stage! Well done all!

Cheers



to our local Ambulance Service, RCMP, the Invermere Medical Clinic, the Invermere and District Hospital, The Thrift Store, all my neighbours and friends who were involved in kicking down my door. I really appreciated your concern. I didn’t know I had so many friends who cared.

Jeers



to the red Ford Fiesta that I followed between Invermere crossroads and Radium turnoff to the Park Pass. They flicked their cigarettes out the window! Then I watched the hot red butt, hop across the road to the dry ditch! With all the wildfires so close by, I have to wonder what world they’re living in?

Jeers



to the local gardeners who feel that $17 is a fair price for a few carrots and green beans at the Farmers Market.. We are not all wealthy people/tourists. We try and support local growers but that is way too much.

Cheers



to Adrienne with Canada Post for going above and beyond to help retrieve my son’s parcel after a key mix-up. It was so nice of you to take that time out of your day – thank you!

Cheers



to Loree at RDEK for the daily fire updates! Cheers to BC Wildfire Service for keeping the information flowing — Wow! A lot of expertise, people and equipment to fight even the smallest of fires, very eye-opening! We are so grateful.

Cheers



Big time Cheers on behalf of all runners and walkers, to the Invermere Rotary Club and all the volunteers and sponsors who make the annual Loop the Lake Run such a great event! And you’ve been doing it for 22 years! See you next year.

Jeers



to the cyclist who dented my car. Stay out of my way next time!

Cheers



to Columbia Basin Trust and its Community Initiatives program which help to fund the Rushmere FireSmart costs of a chipper, disposal bins and operations for community work days July 21st, 22nd and 28th. You made it possible for us to reduce the risk of wildfire in our Community.

Cheers



to all the amazing heroes who risk their lives to put out fires to save Nature, Wildlife, Humans…Thanks PILOTS, INITIAL ATTACK, RAP, everyone involved! You ROCK!!

Cheers



to Sylvia for knitting for the Newborn Purple Hat Campaign. Your help is much appreciated.
