Function Junction block party

Well, Function Junction was rocking again last Thursday night, and I think I can safely say that everyone who attended "The" event of the summer had another rollicking good time. A huge thank you to Andrea Mueller and all her hard working staff and volunteers at Whistler Arts Council who make this party happen every year, and to all the vendors, entertainers, artists, sponsors (especially the "Don of Function") and businesses who showed everyone why FJ is a such a happening place.

Flower poachers

To the person that stole the hanging plants from outside the train station in Creekside on Saturday night: I really hope that you appreciate the love and tender care that went into making those hanging baskets look so beautiful.

I know that our guests that arrive in Whistler on the train did. It was a great first impression and a beautiful welcome to our great town.

Now, thanks to your callous act, our guests are now greeted by a metal rack with one lonely plant and two empty hooks where those lovely baskets once hung proudly.

I sincerely hope that you continue to care for those plants with the same love and care that we did here at the station and that you appreciate the beauty they provide.

Hopefully the flowers will continue to thrive under your care and not wilt and die under the weight of your guilt. If the guilt does get too much for you (and the flowers) to bear, you can always return them home to be reunited with the only remaining basket.

I guess if you had more hands you could have taken the complete set.
