Roses and Raspeberries, September

A huge thank you to the guys and gals from the ambulance service and the volunteer fire department.

A huge thank you to the guys and gals from the ambulance service and the volunteer fire department for the fast response and caring professional teamwork carrying me into the ambulance and getting me to the hospital. Many thanks to each and every one of you.

Raspberries to all the Williams Lake residents who honked, fingered and yelled at me on Mackenzie Avenue in August close to the old grocery store.

For your information, I’d stopped to make sure a man was OK after I witnessed him go flying off his bike and over the handlebars.

You honked, etc., because I was not pulled all the way off the road. I’ve lost a little bit more faith in our human race.

We would like to send a “huge” bouquet of roses to Bob and Brian from Sprucelee Construction. You guys went above and beyond helping us when we had car trouble taking our daughter to Camp Likely on Aug. 10. Your kindness is truly a breath of fresh air.

Gaetano and Tammi Caferra

Also, another bouquet of roses to Brian Godin and the other kind fellow who endured the smell of the garbage they loaded into their trucks in order to assist us when we could have been stranded. Very appreciative.

A great big bouquet of multi-coloured roses to the person who so kindly and honestly took my wallet to the service centre at Canadian Tire. You didn’t leave your name so I hope you get the roses.

Debbie and the families from Huckle Buckle Daycare would like to send a huge bouquet of roses to Stan and the 150 Mile Fire Dept. for the use of the hall during the recent teacher’s strike. Greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Debbie Cordingley

A big bouquet of roses to the lady who owns Karamina Donairs.

This kind lady allowed the Brownies to use her bathroom during our art walk around town one evening.  Not only did she kindly let the Brownies use her business’ facilities but provided a snack for all of the girls. Gestures, such as this make our town a wonderful place.
