Message From Craig Anderson’s Family

~ Please note: The correct address for Craig is 1661 Fell St, not 1660 ~

Friends of Craig Anderson,

Thank-you for your prayers, uplifting thoughts and continued support since our father, Craig, was struck crossing the road on December 20, 2016.

While his first week in the ICU had us facing a grim prognosis he was able to miraculously start holding his own and healing his physical injuries. Since regaining consciousness we have experienced many ‘Craig-isms’ that leave us hopeful he will return to a version of his jovial self.

However, the severity of the brain injury he has sustained will take months, possibly years to heal and only time will reveal how much memory he will regain.

At this time he is not allowed visitors, we ask that his health care workers be given the space required to work. Please hold back delivery of tangible gifts until a later time when he can enjoy them. Words of encouragement can be sent to:

Craig Anderson
c/o 1661 Fell Street
Victoria, BC V8R4V8

All healing vibes welcomed.
The Anderson Kids

Warm Fuzzy for Brian Konrad


A HUGE warm fuzzy to my neighbour Brian Konrad for shovelling my driveway not once, but twice!
I’m a horrible neighbour as when they were away for holidays I should have been the one shovelling their driveway, but instead Brian has to come home and do his, and then is nice enough to do mine as well.
Much appreciated Brian – thank you!

Appreciation from Santa Claus

T H A N K  Y O U  G O L D  R I V E R!

Hopefully, you all had a wonderful Holiday Season filled with laughter and happiness. Both my wife Erika and I wish you all the very best life has to offer for the coming year.

During the month of December I had the pleasant and awesome responsibility to be Santa for the children of Gold River.

Nothing has ever given me more pleasure and happiness than being Santa for the many wonderful children (and adults) I encountered. My first engagement was the “TWILIGHT AT THE PLAZA”. Although it was sparsely attended, my wife Erika, as Santa’s Elf, and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Next came the “SANTA AT THE COMMUNITY CENTRE” event, which had us delivered by Helicopter to the parking lot, where dozens of children and adults were watching Santa’s landing. The short flight over Gold River was simply exhilarating, something my wife and I will not soon forget. Santa also visited during the Christmas party for all Village employees at the “RIDGE” as well as the Children’s Christmas Party for the RCMP and FIRE DEPARTMENT. Next up were all the children at the elementary school and then the “MOWACHAHT/MUCHALAHT FIRST NATION”. The final visit for Santa was at the “SANTA IN THE PLAZA” for two days. This event was sponsored by the local Legion Branch 270, which also contributed a cash donation.

A huge “Thank You” goes out to the many businesses and individuals who helped making this event very successful.

The following businesses and individuals gave generously and enthusiastically to support the event, which, without the strong support, would not have been possible:

The Lodge at Gold River (very generous cash contribution); the new owners of the Plaza, J.T. (cash contribution); the Auto Shop (Ross Allison, cash contribution); Rick at the Lumberyard; Dawn (The Deli); The Gold River Pharmacy; The Treasure Chest; Eagles Wings Restaurant; The Literacy Society; Field’s Dep’t Store; Internet Café; Clayworks Café and Gallery; Super Valu; The Ridge Roadhouse; Straight Grain Inc.; Curb Appeal landscaping services; and last but not least my wife Erika – she not only acted as Santa’s Elf, she also contributed a large sum of cash to make up a shortfall to purchase many toys and sweets, plus she spent countless hours in preparation and planning for the many events. She made a terrific Elf – next year, I have to make her “Mrs. Claus” if she lets me.

Again, Thank You, Gold River, for your generosity, enthusiastic support and participation. Hopefully, we can do it again next year.

Have a successful, healthy, prosperous and very Happy New Year!

Peter Kuhrt and Erika Kuhrt.

Cougar Sighting Last Night on Cedar Crescent

The RCMP was advised of a cougar sighting in the 400 block of Cedar Crescent yesterday evening and was last seen walking toward Nimpkish Park. Patrols were made but the cougar was not located and the British Columbia Conservation Service has been made aware as well. Further patrols are being made in an attempt to locate the cougar and the RCMP and Conservation Service are asking residents to remain vigilant when out with children and pets.
