Good deed done in Parksville
The staff and members of the Parksville Seniors' Drop-In Centre want to thank a Good Samaritan — if only they knew who he was.
"I've always been a lucky person, I must have some kind of guardian angel or whatever," explained the centre's treasurer Lise Lee, who described what could have been an unfortunate incident last Friday afternoon.
"I took the bank deposit and closed up shop Friday night (just before 4 p.m.) and I was going to take it to the bank Saturday morning," she said.
When she got to her car she couldn't find her keys so she put the envelope down on the car to search. When she found them she got in her car and drove away, forgetting about the envelope until she got home.
She immediately went back but couldn't find anything. She called the Coastal Community Credit Union to ask about it, but they didn't know anything.
"A few minutes later they called back to say a gentleman had returned the envelope to them."
She said she "would have replaced the money, as it is my responsibility, but I could not replace the deposit books."
Since the envelope was returned anonymously, Lee said they just want to make sure they thank the person whoever he was, described as a "good looking, nicely dressed 50-something man."
