BEEFS AND BOUQUETS for February
A big bouquet for Vicky from Robbins Parking. Recently we picked up our grandson and daughter in-law at the ferry terminal. In the flurry of loading baby, baby gear, suitcase, etc., she left behind her backpack/purse. Vicky was right there spotting it, picking it up and turning it in. What could have been a terrible weekend, turned into a great family visit. Thank you so much Vicky.
A most sincere thank-you to the school bus drivers that accompany my children on their commute to school each day. A smile, a stuffed animal, a high-five, a joke ... you make my children feel safe and special. Each day, I know my kids are in good hands.
Thank you so much to the very kind mustached gentleman at Home Hardware on Beacon Avenue in Sidney for fixing my tap shoe and replacing the screw. It is very much appreciated and I encourage customers to support such a great business.
Canadian Parents for French Saanich Chapter would like to send bouquets of thank you’s to all our volunteers.
So far this year we have been able to host many wonderful events starting with a district wide French Resource Fair, a “Bonjour, Bonne Nuit” with a wonderful group of Stelly’s students and our Maple Man events held at both Keating and Deep Cove elementary schools.
To our volunteers, you are priceless — thank you!

A special thanks to whomever found my keys on the streets of Sidney. They took them into Tanner’s Books who in turn took them to the police station where I had already reported them missing. I had them back soon after and I’m very grateful.
On behalf of the Sidney Lions Food Bank, the Peninsula Mission would like to thank the communities of Sidney, North and Central Saanich for their generous donations of money and non-perishable food items at the annual Sparkles parade. A cash donation of $2,644 dollars was received by the food bank as a result of this single event. Special thanks to the 20-plus volunteers for their enthusiastic support in this worthwhile project.
Peninsula Mission Community Church
The Central Saanich Lions Club wishes to thank the community for their strong support of their annual Christmas tree chip project.
The generous donations collected will go Shawnigan Kids Camp and a number of other local charities.
Central Saanich Lions Club
Thrifty Foods Central Saanich would like to thank their customers for their generous donations of $800 during the holiday season to the Sidney Lions food bank.
To make this possible, three staff members volunteered eight hours each of their own time. Three families were also sponsored by customers and staff so that they could have a happy holiday season.
Thrifty Foods #14
This bouquet is for the Sidney Thrifty Foods floral department. For my 80th birthday in August, my three sons arranged to have a very large bouquet of flowers delivered to my home on the 6th of every month for the next year. The flowers have been beautiful each time and so different. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Brigitte and the Boys
Thank you from Sidney Secret Santas Toys for Tots to everyone who made donations to the 2012 campaign. A big thanks also goes out to all our present wrappers.
As a result of everyone’s hard work, we were able to give out over 600 presents to children in need on the Saanich Peninsula. We hope to see you all again for the 2013 Sidney Secret Santas events!
