Cheers & Jeers

Cheers & Jeers October 17th

JEERS to the person that is constantly racing around Radium. You speed down the street beside the kid’s park while smoking AND talking on your cellphone. Get a hobby and slow the heck down before you hit someone’s child!

Big Cheers to all our volunteers and merchants/supporters of the CV Rockies Amazing Race!

Jeers to the inconsiderate drivers coming out of Wilmer who do not stop at the sign and yield to those of us coming down Peters Hill causing us to have to slam on our brakes so that we don’t rear end you. Use some common courtesy and wait your turn!

Cheers to Jeff and team at Canadian Tire for squeezing me in and putting my winter tires on when you were fully booked. I had a safe drive back to Calgary. Much appreciated!

Cheers to Uncle Owen and cousins Quentin and Wenonah for your wonderful hospitality during our visit to Invermere. We loved every minute of it and can’t wait to see you again!

A wholehearted Cheers to the wonderful people at the Invermere Post Office. Kind-hearted heroes all! They have been so helpful during a very difficult time for me, going above and beyond on so many occasions, and I just wanted them to know how very much it is appreciated.

Cheers to the green recycling bins at the Columbia Valley Landfill! Yes, it’s a bit more work to sort our recyclables and a bit more out of the way to unload them, but if more refuse is diverted from the landfill and regional tax dollars are SAVED, it’s well worth the effort!

Cheers to the awesome and honest person who turned my wallet in at AG Valley Foods on October 8th, and for the kind staff member who found me in the parking lot. The AG staff are always saving me! Cheers to y’all.

Cheers to Pizza2Go! Incredible service and great pizza!

Cheers & Jeers October 10th

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 & Jeers October 3rd

Jeers to loud ATVs. If you need to wear hearing protection while driving, I suppose you can’t even imagine how you are disturbing wildlife and annoying your neighbours.

Cheers to all the Albertans and Saskatchewanites that travelled to be at the Columbia Valley Classics car show. It was a fantastic car show. Congrats to the organizers.

Cheers to Krista at CIBC for your patience in dealing with a senior who was a bit confused by the intricacies of banking. I was waiting in line and saw you patiently help him through the process. As well, your ready smile and quick laughter are infectious. You always make my day when I come in.

Jeers to the disgusting amount of recyclable materials being thrown into the Edgewater Dump. It’s time to start caring and doing your part! Hiding it in the ground doesn’t make it disappear for future generations.

Big Cheers to Dixie and the crew at Coy’s Golf Course for the delicious meal served to the Fairmont Ladies Club last Wednesday. The service and food were just GREAT, and the door prizes just added to the FUN! Much appreciated girls!

Cheers to Phil, Clare and Charlotte Marshall from the Cabin for generously donating proceeds from their sales to the Panorama Firefighters Association. Cheers for being a hub and the pub for this community!

Cheers to Heather at Root 93 Dental for providing exceptional care to her clients and going above and beyond in meeting their needs!

A big Cheers to all the employees who make Invermere streets gorgeous all summer then let people pick them before frost does. You do such beautiful work.

Cheers to the several owners of Collector cars who came by in the afternoon of Friday Sept 20th to show off their cars to the Columbia House residents. They enjoyed the time outside and to see the beautiful cars. Much appreciation for taking the time out to visit the facility.

Big Cheers to the staff at Windermere Valley Golf Course for always being so friendly and accommodating to the Unruly ladies’ golf group.

Cheers to David for taking the time out of his day to let me know about my flat tire and then changing it with us. It really was amazing, we will pay it forward!
