To: The Qualicum Beach food store employees.

I recently gave a thank you card to John, Ken and Noel to congratulate them on their 30 years in business. They also made it a wonderful evening on the beach with the fireworks. What I forgot to say was thank you to all their employees for the great job that they all do.

Carol Laurance, Qualicum Beach
