Hugs and Slugs – Nov. 28

If you have a hug or a slug, we’d like to hear it. Simply email bctimesnews@shaw.ca with your short quips, compliments or complaints.

Hugs: To the BCSS Spirit Club and the head shave students for raising over $2,200 for cancer research.

Hugs: To Pat Kelly for keeping us all informed about what’s going on in our little corner of the world. Love all your pics of the events in our area.

Hugs: To Robert Hamilton for changing attire at the car wash.

Slugs: To the people who park on the street every Saturday afternoon for the Legion meat draw This brings the local economy to a grinding halt as there is no possible way for tourists and others traveling through town to find a reasonable place to park while they run in to get a coffee at the Copper Eagle.

Hugs: To our children’s health; and Slugs: To childhood cancer.

Hugs: For the nice weather we are having. NO SNOW. Slugs: To people who don’t keep the recycling bin area clean – if you miss the hole in the side of the bin don’t just leave it on the ground where the wind blows it wherever.

Slugs: To those high school grads of 2013 who got a congratulations card but didn’t bother to acknowledge it. Not even so much as a phone call.

Hugs: To everyone who donated bottles and cans to the Boundary Figure Skating Club for our fundraiser.

Hugs: To Grant Storzuk of Osoyoos Physiotherapy and Active Living for recognizing a need for his services in our communities.

If you have a hug or a slug, we’d like to hear it. We will print the anonymous

submissions for all to see. Be honest, but all we ask is that you keep

it tasteful. Editor’s discretion will always be exercised. Simply email bctimesnews@

shaw.ca with your short quips, compliments or complaints; or you

may drop them off at 318 South Copper Street in Greenwood.
