While Non-perishable items are greatly appreciated, fund raisers that have amounted to dollars donated this fall, have helped us buy much needed items such as a new scale, two dollies and a new computer...all of which are replacing items that were in poor working order.

A heartfelt thank-you to the community at large for your overwhelming support!

You too can help out by organizing a Food Drive — visit www.mywcss.org/food-bank to learn how. Or you can call the food bank coordinator directly at 604-935-7717.

Happy holidays and a healthy, happy New Year

Christmas Present!

I would like to say a huge thank you to the guy who returned my jacket and phone (gift wrapped!) to me on Christmas day after it had gone missing from coat check the night before. It really made my day. I hope you and your housemates had an awesome Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Dishonest people make me crazy!

On Christmas Eve at approximately 1 p.m. I was stopped in the dedicated left turn lane to turn into Marketplace from Lorimer Rd. The road was snow packed and very slippery and suddenly I was hit from behind by a white car.

The driver of the car and myself got out to assess damages. He introduced himself as Chris (?), apologized and as my vehicle was higher than his, all the damage done to my Chevy Traverse was that the trailer hitch cover popped off. His vehicle had a large crack on the bumper.

He suggested we turn in to Marketplace to exchange information, and as we were "sitting ducks" on the slippery road, I agreed it would be safer. I saw in my rear-view mirror he did turn in, and as I looked ahead to park in the MacDonalds loading zone, which would give us room in a very busy lot, he took off!

The bus stop on Lorimer was crowded, and I only hope that someone noticed what kind of vehicle it was as I took quite a jolt and I believed him when he said he'd follow me.

I posted a note at the bus stop but so far have heard nothing......So "Chris," know that karma will get you, and everyone of us out there that drive, appreciate it's people like you that drive insurance rates even higher. Thank you so much!

The whiplash I sustained will heal with therapy and time, but my disgust that you were such a coward will stay with me for a long time! I wonder if you perhaps had a little too much après, or perhaps you didn't have a valid drivers license?
