CHEERS to Earl and his family for helping me repair the upper radiator in my car last month. They went the extra mile and drove me to an auto parts store to get a new hose and supplies, then they repaired my car for me.
JEERS to boaters who demonstrate a lack of common courtesy and good seamanship by operating their vessels at high rates of speed in the vicinity of other boats, moored or anchored, or close to docks and shorelines.
CHEERS to Peninsula Light Co. for being the power source in the area. We had a major power outage, and PenLight went into action to get power back to the area in a little more than 90 minutes. Amazing!
CHEERS to the person who left a variety of fresh produce on my back porch in Wauna.
CHEERS to the staff of the Gig Harbor/Peninsula branch of the Pierce County Library System. I’ve been a patron for about 15 years, and I am amazed at how helpful and friendly each staff member always is.
CHEERS to the awesome volunteers from the Fox Island Alliance Church and Pierce County Sheriff’s deputies for helping to keep kids safe at Artondale Elementary before and after school. With their help, the first week of student pickup and drop-off went smoothly.
CHEERS to Dr. Mason Platt for replacing Dr. Yancey as team physician at Gig Harbor High School. Thank you, Dr. Yancey, for all you have done during the past 13 years.
CHEERS to Union Bank for being customer-friendly. They fit well in our home town. Since I opened an account, I am greeted by name. It’s like walking back in time when banking was fun — old-fashioned, down-home banking.
