This week’s offering of Nelson’s Hugs & Slugs

To whoever put a box of their car garbage including soiled diapers into the Nelson Star box at Harrop.

HUGS. Huge hug to the lovely lady who took the time to return our very loved, albeit misbehaving, dog from the road. I am so grateful for your act of kindness.

– Sammie’s owner

 

HUGS. Hugs to the owners of Nelson’s Dulux/Colour Your World for refinishing the surface of the bench on Pulpit Rock. Slugs to the person who had defaced it.

– A Grateful Pulpiteer

 

Slugs. To me for almost accidentally cutting you off… hugs to you my neighbour for being so understanding 🙂

 

HUGS. To the person that returned my son’s wallet intact… A big hug and many thanks! So good to be able to trust in our little community.

 

HUGS. To the lovely, cheerful woman who could spare some change for the parking meter on Baker Street. Thank you for helping me out — many flowers and blessings!

 

HUGS. To the Harrop ferry operators who deliver everyone safely especially during the recent storm of wind, rain, and “high seas.”

 

SLUGS. To whoever put a box of their car garbage including soiled diapers into the Nelson Star box at Harrop.

 

HUGS. To the baseball coach who toils away to always ensure the Queen E diamond is well manicured for game time. Not an easy task in the Nelson spring. It enhances the enjoyment for the players and the parents watching from the stands. Keep up the great work!

 

Hugs. To Tom at ROAM for amazing customer service.

 

Slugs. To whoever keeps taking my for sale signs from Chatham and Nelson Ave.

 

SLUGS. To the person responsible for hitting our loving big orange cat with a car on West Innes Street the morning of May 30. Accidents happen, that’s understandable. But to leave an injured animal to die on the road is horrible. If you are reading this, our cat belongs to a low income family, please help us with the vet costs to heal our puma.

 

HUGS. I became a permanent resident just over a year ago now, and I have to say… I already knew I was moving to the coolest town in the country, but continue to find it getting more cool every day. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that our major newspaper reserved an entire section last week for the children of the town to contribute the articles on social media! I thought this to be very wise, and demonstrated well all the influences the children of Nelson have. The articles revealed the influence of parenting, teaching, each other, and I also enjoyed that writing from the girls and the boys were each well represented. I appreciated this special section very much. It was extremely refreshing newsmaking. Thank you!

 

Hugs. To Victor for such a quick response and great service to our broken furnace needed even in May!

 

Hugs. To Derek at Andex for an incredibly quick repair of my trailer tire… On my way in a jiffy. – Happy machine renter

 

Hugs. To the cast and crew of the Capitol Theatre production of Cabaret. Outstanding performances and musical direction. Hats off to you all.

 

Hugs. To the most amazing Rink Guy named Eddie. You made a dream come true for a deserving 40-year-old boy! I thank you so much. I dont know how to repay you! xo

 

Hugs. To the City workers who are doing such a beautiful job of fixing up the 900 block of Vernon Street. Thank you for all your good efforts to keep our city lovely.

 

HUGS. Huge baskets of flowers to our Nelson Ford dealership for the wonderful customer service after my car’s recent issues. It is wonderful to be in a community where relationships mean a lot. Thank you so much for taking care of things for me.

– Grateful to be driving again

 

Hugs. A special thanks to Tony and staff of Maglio’s for their effort to get me the special product I needed to finish a project. Very much appreciated.

 

HUGS. Big hugs to Nelson Sears and our local business community from the kids at L’ecole des Sentiers Alpins. Our fundraiser was a success because of your generosity!

 

HUGS. Big hugs to the resilient kids of Rosemont elementary school for cleaning up and making the best of a senseless attack on their newly planted gardens. They “fill my bucket” each and every day.

 

HUGS. Great big huge hugs to the RDCK, Nelson RCMP and “the dog lady”… sorry, I don’t know your name but appreciate your work. Great big huge hugs from the families who love to enjoy Taghum Beach but have been chased away by public alcohol consumption, loud, offensive language and unleashed, unmanageable dogs. Thanks for giving us our beach back to enjoy! Your efforts are very much appreciated!
