Roses and Raspberries: March

The Horsefly Women’s Institute thanks everyone who participated in our annual fundraiser.

The Horsefly Women’s Institute thanks everyone who participated in our annual fundraiser, “The Sharon Thomas Annual Lunch and Silent Auction,” held on Dec. 5, 2015.

The event was a huge success and would not be possible without the generous support from the numerous Williams Lake and Horsefly businesses, as well as individual donors.

The funds raised through this event help support the Horsefly community and its organizations.

President, Horsefly Women’s Institute


I’d like to send a garden full of roses to Pat Coster, and the five young men, Kevin Sokolan, Cole Leclerc, Dylan Taylor, Steve Chipman and Jordan Murphy.

On Feb. 9 they, without hesitation, after I flagged them down on the road, jumped out to save my 30-year-old horse who had slipped and fallen on the ice.

Without concerns for themselves, they managed to get her head up, feet under her, and lifted her up.

They stayed to hold her up, and steadied her to lead her to a safe place.

I never would have been able to save her without their help. It’s people like you who restore my faith in humanity.To the person who called the police, you only added to an already stressful situation.

I would like to make a special thank you to the C.F.S. for my 24-year retirement party, and to my mom and all the rest of the people who came and gave gifts and cards, and everyone who even thought of it and gave me good well wishes.

All the best to all my friends, family and acquaintances.

I would like to say thank you very much to the staff at Save-On-Foods for finding my wallet.
