Plenty of hugs to go around

Snow removal work praised by one Nelson contributor.

HUGS: A huge hug to the grader driver  for cleaning my road two times last Saturday. You did a fantastic job and I sure appreciate it. Thank you so much.

 

HUGS: Hugs to the Nelson city police officer who kept my son safe when he got lost at the Holiday Train event. And hugs to my son for doing the right thing and asking a police officer for help. Thank you!

 

SLUGS: A huge slug to the person who took a senior’s black leather gloves from my cart near the post office at Shopper’s while I was dealing with my parcel.

 

HUGS: Hugs to the lady ahead of me in line that paid for my favourite hot drink at a local popular coffee shop. I loved your story about paying it forward on behalf of your husband for the good deed he had done for him. I have yet to pay it forward, but rest assured, I will! Thanks again and have a wonderful Christmas.

 

HUGS: Hugs to the wonderful young girl and mother who came into our charitable organization on December 11. I just want to acknowledge that this young girl for her birthday asked for money, instead of gifts, and donated all of it to two different charities. This family shows true concern for our community.

 

HUGS: Thank you for all of the community members and businesses who have been donating to charities this Christmas season. People like you are the reason we can keep our doors open and serve our community.

 

HUGS: Hugs to all Nelsonites who diligently keep their walkways clear of snow and ice and help to make Nelson a safer place for all. It sometimes takes only one serious fall to make the difference between a senior being able to live independently, or needing assisted living. To all that don’t do their part, ask yourself how you would feel if somebody seriously hurt themselves because of your negligence!

 

HUGS: Hugs to the man who tried to help me open my car door down at the mall when I foolishly locked the car leaving the keys in the ignition. And even bigger hugs to the mall administrator who called the maintenance man who came out and opened the car door in less than a minute. My deepest appreciation. I hope that I can do a similar deed for someone else someday.

 

If you have a Hug or a Slug… we’d like to hear it. Simply email us at editor@nelsonstar.com with your short quips, compliments or complaints. Keep it tasteful and anonymous — no names of individuals or businesses, please. You can also drop by a written submission to our offices at 514 Hall Street.
