A huge bouquet of roses to the Cariboo Piecemakers, especially Elaine Watt and Diane Mousseau, for the donation of a quilt to be used for fundraising.

The beautiful piece received first prize in the recent Harvest Fair.

The quilt will be displayed at a number of venues in the community and was at the Royal Purple’s garage sale at the Elks Hall on Oct. 31, 2015. Tickets for the draw are by donation and the draw will be held Dec. 15, 2015, at noon at the Seniors Activity Centre.

All monies raised go towards purchasing cancer-detecting equipment for the Cariboo Memorial Hospital in Williams Lake.

A large bouquet of roses to Paula, Maggie, Tamara, Tania and the staff and residents of Deni House for making our 70th wedding anniversary so very special. You outdid yourselves. The posters and the art work will be added to our 65th anniversary book. It will be treasured. Thank you so much.

A large bouquet of roses to the unsung heroes of the medical profession. They are our care aids. They are dedicated, caring and efficient.

I have lived in four different towns and the care we received was excellent. The public are truly blessed to have such dedicated staff.

I would like to send out a huge bouquet of roses to the West Fraser Truckers Association, the Williams Lake Log Haulers, the Williams Lake Rustlers, Dr. Vitoratis at Cariboo Dental Clinic all the neighbours and friends on Ottoman Drive and McPherson Wynd, Bill Micatovich, Elizabeth Bayliff, Patrice Gordon, Bob Micatovich, Kevin and Jessica Brecknock, Joe Mulvahill, Sam Kim, Karl Fischer, Suzanne Cochrane and all the neighbours and friends in my home town of Alexis Creek for the huge support they have given me over the last two months.

Without all your support I would not have been able to make it over to Kingston, Ont., for the Team Canada Women’s U18 Rugby Camp.

I worked hard while I was there, learned more than I thought was possible and had an amazing experience. My next Team Canada camp is in January in Vancouver and from there the team to go to England will be chosen.

I would also like to put a special thank you out to my high school coaches Morley Wilson and Braden McCallum for all their encouragement and support, and to my brother Ty Feldinger for all his driving skills.

Thank you, everyone.

Emma Feldinger
