Bouquets and Brickbats – Aug. 10, 2012

Praise and kicks in the pants from readers of The News.

A huge bouquet of roses to Renee at SOS for her assistance and kindness in helping my mother.

Marilyn Hooper, Errington


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


The Bike for your Life organizing committee thanks Parksville Pharmasave for graciously allowing us to plan the 2012 event from their seminar room. Cheers.

Gord Byers, Parksville


An alarming bouquet of Dogwood flowers to my neighbor Doug for his assistance in helping me free our other neighbors dog from hanging upside down in the wire fence on Friday, July 13.

Sandi Wells, The PQB News


Thanks to the person who found my wallet June 30.
