Cheers & Jeers October 10th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

Huge, loud gratitude filled Cheers to all of the businesses who donated to the raffle baskets at the Windermere Carnival. It was greatly appreciated!

Jeers to some dog owners. What a site to see dog POOP on the sidewalk in front of a business on Main Street. You cannot tell me you didn’t know your dog did that when you were walking. I don’t like coming to work and seeing this, next time clean up after your dog.

Cheers to Pizza2Go, you are by far the best pizza in the Valley and great service!

A heartfelt Cheers to Sobeys for their generous donation. Our Terry Fox Run at Sonshine daycare was a huge success, in part due to your help. The healthy snacks were a huge hit for all the kids!

Jeers to the lack of Sani dumps in this Valley. Imagine all the trailers coming through next year.

A HUGE Cheers to Gary and Lynne of the Horsethief Hideout, for treating the residents of Columbia Garden Village to a tour of their amazing property and hosting a lovely afternoon tea in their rustic saloon. Your kindness was appreciated by everyone.

Jeers to all you who are complaining about your choice to work in the service industry. Here’s an option, if you can’t handle the demands of your job or your customer’s complaints, move on.

Big Jeers to employees that grossly overspend and then quit, leaving the rest of the staff holding the bag and trying to fix the mess.

Huge Cheers to Root 93 Dental. What a wonderful experience! From a very happy new patient.

Cheers to Dr. Brown and all the wonderful nurses for your recent care in the ER. Your calmness and reassurance helped keep this momma in a positive mindset while you treated my daughter. Much appreciated!

Cheers to Pizza2Go. Great pizza and great service! We will be back!

Cheers to the older couple I just saw picking up trash east of the High School, you are what makes living here so wonderful.

Cheers to Kari at AG Valley Foods!

Cheers to Jim Harrison for all your volunteer work at All Saints Church in Edgewater. Much appreciated!

Cheers to Jocelyn at Summit – you go above and beyond; this valley is lucky to have you.

Huge Cheers to Dana Schagar the most Awesome Bus Driver Ever! We are so grateful for your positive attitude and experience sure appreciate you looking out for our children’s safety to and from school as well as all the extra trips you take them on.
