A treasured tradition

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at the Whistler Waldorf School Christmas Fair on Dec. 11. It is hard to believe that it has been over 10 years since we held the first one and so heartwarming to hear how it has become such a treasured holiday tradition within the community.

Thank you to Nesters Market and Aphrodite's Organic Café and Pie Shop for supplying all the yummy hot lunch supplies, to Whistler Roasting Company for keeping the lattes flowing, and to all of the dedicated volunteers who helped the children create their beautiful handmade gifts for their friends and families.

Whishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

No joy in lot 4

I was radiating joy as I rode the bus through a snowy village this morning. I'd had a great night the evening before, enjoying a few Christmas beverages with visiting friends. Although I'd only had three drinks over several hours, knowing the new driving restrictions, I decided to be responsible and leave my car safely parked in lot 4.

Just after 9 a.m. I arrived in the village and headed to my vehicle. Merrily dusting the newly fallen snow off my car I noticed an indentation on my windshield and there it was: A parking ticket. I felt the cheer drain from my body. The snow, that moments ago had brought me joy, now irritated me as it had made my car a target.

Although already stretched financially, my disappointment wasn't about the money. This was about principle! Apparently you can no longer have one drink and drive, nor can you park! This is a FREE lot filled on a first come, first served basis. By my car being there and filling space, I'm actually encouraging use of the rarely utilized pay parking. Being cautious and trying to follow the law evidently brings punishment. It appears that I can no longer legally leave my car anywhere!
