PNR: Beefs and Bouquets

Thank-yous and no-thank-yous from readers of the Peninsula News Review.

I would like to extend a bouquet to the businesses of Saanichton Village for their superb Christmas Light display. It was wonderful to walk or drive through the Village and see the beautiful decorative lights.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the townspeople of Sidney who both donate to and also to those who operate the gifts for children’s program known as Secret Santas. Special thanks in particular to go Constable Ravi Gunasinghe for his tireless efforts and warm approach to gift recipients. The kindness, generosity and compassion shown for people in need is exactly what the spirit of the season is all about.

A special thanks to Hale Hughesman Chartered Accountants for making holiday magic happen.

One of our volunteers’ special needs son loves all things Victoria Royals. The staff at Hale Hughesman made sure he would celebrate the new year with game tickets.
