Beefs and Bouquets: Saanich Peninsula

Readers send in their praise - and jeers - for what they see and do on the Saanich Peninsula.

Thank you Sidney.  I am honoured and humbled to be a part of the new council team working for you, working for our Sidney.  Thank you.

Barbara Fallot

 

I would like offer sincere bouquets to the members of staff (our Town ambassadors and unsung heroes) in our public works and parks department. These dedicated and hard working staff support our town day and night and without doubt have a significant impact on the quality of life we all enjoy as residents of Sidney, and, who are instrumental in assisting council to achieve the vision of Sidney being the best seaside town in Canada. These men and women continue to go that extra mile. Many of them giving extra unpaid hours to our community. I am so proud to have known you all.

On behalf of the residents of Sidney, thank you.

Kenny Podmore

 

An especially large bouquet to the members of our Sidney/North Saanich RCMP detachment. They do a wonderful job for us in many ways. I particularly like the efforts they are making on curbing speeding drivers on Route 17.

Brian Shepherd

 

A great big bouquet to the individuals, artists, donors and supporters who participated in the Winspear Art Show and Sale on Sept. 13.

Our wonderful community came out in support of the Mary Winspear Centre and enjoyed an evening of celebrating visual arts and performing arts.

Six-year-old Helena Yates and fourteen-year-old Lauren Fanelli, under the coordination of their singing teacher Lexa Yates, filled the Bodine Hall with beautiful music as guests enjoyed a fantastic dinner catered by Island Culinary Services .

Heart felt thanks and words of praise for all their efforts.

Brad Edgett, Executive Director of the Mary Winspear Centre
