Earlier this month the Nelson Welcome Wagon had a special visitor and in turn took the opportunity to honour some special sponsors. Welcome Wagon Canada area manager for Southern Alberta and the Kootenays Coreen Wickenheiser (second from left) stopped by the community as part of a tour through her area. While in town Wickenheiser brought 20-year plaques for the Nelson and District Credit Union and the Kootenay Co-Op. She also honoured local Welcome Wagon representative Lois Arnesen — who is retiring at the end of the year — for her 21 years of service. Included in the photo are: (L-R) Nelson’s newest Welcome Wagon representative Valerie Lidford, Wickenheiser, Doug Stoddart of the Nelson and District Credit Union, Kristine Hus of the Kootenay Co-op, Arnesen and Nelson Wagon representative Frances Welwood.
