Beefs and Bouquets for February

Readers of the Peninsula News Review write in about what impressed, depressed them last month

I’d like to extend sincere thanks to Kelly, the kind Samaritan who came to my aid when I felt faint in Lilaberry Home Decor on Jan. 9. Your compassionate concern and sharing of glucose tablets were appreciated.

On Jan. 19, when my car slipped off the road at the corner of Chalet Road and Tatlow, North Saanich, four cars with eight people stopped to assist me. They pushed my car back onto the road and sent me on my way to sing “What a Wonderful World” at my rehearsal for the Getting Higher Choir concert that weekend.

A special thank you and appreciation to Wendy, Brock and Corey of Orr’s Meats in Sidney. On Jan. 27, my friend took ill in the store. Wendy called 911 and Brock watched over us until the ambulance arrived. My friend was taken to hospital and Brock drove her car home, then he and Corey drove me home.

Tremendous thanks to the kind, anonymous donor for the gift of $500 given to Parkland secondary school’s anti-malaria bed nets fundraiser. With your donation, 50 additional nets will be sent to African families to protect up to 250 children from malaria for five years.

The Kiwanis Club of Sidney and Peninsula would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Kiwanis Toy Drive such a success. Thank you for the donations of toys, money, supplies and volunteer time. And a special thank you to the Peninsula News Review for their continued support of the toy drive through the Coins for Kids initiative.

The Central Saanich Lions Club wishes to the thank all those who so generously donated to this year’s Christmas tree chipping project. Because of the wonderful support, we were able to donate $2,400 to the Shawnigan Lake Kids Camp. The additional funds also went towards other initiatives such as the Sidney Lions Food Bank, Mount Newton Centre, and the Saanich Peninsula Emergency Response Program.
