This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from Nelson area

HUGS. Super big fatty hugs to little Paige for battling through more than any child should ever have to. You are my hero! Everybody loves you!

 

Hugs. Thank you to the patrons that helped a flustered cashier at El Taco on November 30. It was the night that Santa Claus came to town and all the families dined in the restaurants close to Baker Street. The customers that helped me will always be remembered! Thank you!

 

Hugs. To all our many minor hockey supporters, fans, volunteers and members for the generosity during Kaslo’s annual Christmas Light Up fundraiser.

It takes a community and we are proud to be a part of this one!

 

SLUGS. To the person who takes all the Nelson Star papers. Leaving nothing for the rest of us.

 

HUGS. To Dave from Trail who was kind enough to take my score clock shift on Sunday morning so I could watch my son play in the other arena. That is the kind of Kootenay spirit that makes hockey such a great sport.

 

Hugs. To the person who shovels my snow in secret - Grateful in Uphill.

 

HUGS. To the kind man who tips his paper carrier every year. It’s a bit of a lost art and people forget with free papers. Your kindness is much appreciated.

 

HUGS. A great big warm gingerbread cookie hug to Mary Garnett in Kaslo for contacting me with my “lost” pictures from the photo lab... they were given to you in error and you quickly made sure they made it all the way back to Nelson the next day! That’s better service than the photo lab! These pics are our Christmas gifts to family on the coast that we haven’t seen for a year... all the best to you, we’ll put in an extra word to Santa for you on Christmas Eve for your thoughtfulness!

- love the Nelson Garnetts
