Thank You from the Gold River Food Bank

Thank you Gold River for your continued support of your Food Bank.  The Christmas season Blitz, school projects, personal donations, donations of food and finances from churches, businesses, community clubs and work places make and keep the Food Bank operational.

Starting this new year of 2013, we again find ourselves well stocked with an abundance of food items which will carry us nicely through the coming months.  And this is after providing 25 Christmas Hampers.

A special shout out to the Elves who have gone door-to-door, rain or shine; and to those who contribute on a regular basis – thanks.  Brad and his Super-Valu staff – thanks for your help in so many ways.

So thank you Gold River, from our hearts and the hearts of those you have helped.

Thank you to the Gold River Lions Club

John Teter and family would like to thank the Lion’s Club for the use of their Electric scooter during his time of convalescence.

What an awesome thing being mobile is for someone that is injured, especially during the beautiful summer we had.

The few members that are left here in Gold River continue to do BIG things!

Thanks again.

Warm Fuzzies to Good Samaritans

We would like to extend a “huge” thank you to the people in two vehicles (Larry was the only name I heard) for stopping and assisting us when our truck was broken down on the highway between Gold River and Campbell River on Friday September 28th.

Thank you very much as well for phoning Pete’s Towing for us on your arrival in Campbell River.

Kudos to Donovan’s Bistro

We were in the Gold River area camping and fishing recently, and dropped by a new small pizza place which had recently opened in the mall by Super Valu. We ordered take-out pizzas. We were treated very well while waiting for our pizza.  The owner searched for different places we were interested in and was very friendly and helpful.  We were also given two glasses of iced water to drink while we waited for our order, even though we were in and out, shopping around.  Upon leaving, we were encouraged to take some magazines they had on a table, so I had some crossword puzzles to work on while my husband fished.

We will be back there again next time we are in Gold River.  And by the way, the pizza was DELICIOUS!

Kudos to Local Businesses

Via Walt and Rita Hall

Talk about businesses going the extra mile in Gold River.  I ran around Campbell River looking for a granular combination of mild fertilizer and moss killer but none to be had.  Everybody in Campbell River had the liquid stuff which I didn’t want.

Well anyway, I came to Gold River, got my mail and I just happened to mention this to one of the locals. (Phil Lum) He said,” head down to Messers -they’ve got everything.”  Sure enough, bags and bags of it and at a very reasonable price.

I then looked around the lot and inside and they have more variety than I’ve seen anywhere.  I checked some pricing and it appeared as good or better than Campbell River prices.  Between the building supply and the garden shop Gold Riverites have it made!

Some time ago, I was looking for a piece for a vent that I wanted to install on the house in Campbell River.  I mentioned this to Rick as I could not find this in Campbell River or Courtenay.  After describing what I needed, Rick took me upstairs and pointed to the item and said, “there you go.”  This has happened at other times also with items I couldn’t seem to find elsewhere.

I guess the moral of the story is that most of the merchants in Gold River would rather sell at a reasonable price and rely on more volume to support their bottom line.  I would guess that it’s a delicate balancing act but they do a very good job doing it.  I try to support Gold River businesses whenever I can, unfortunately I’m at a point where I don’t need to buy too much and am using up all the stuff I’ve purchased for projects in the past.

Gold River Food Bank Thanks You

via Rob Hoffman

Thanks, Gold River, for your continued generosity. I am no longer surprised but again proud of our community. Thanks to you, this past year we have been able to assist everyone who has come for a little help in their time of need. If you have ever been in such need (as I have been myself) you know what that “little bit of help” can mean. We want to thank Brad Unger and SuperValu for working with us so closely all year long, as well as the many community and school groups who help supply the bank, often in very creative ways (if you would like to know how a pizza can be turned into a can of veggies for the bank ask Mr. Levering at GRSS sometime). And naturally I want to thank Heather Warwick, who for many, is the face of the Food Bank. She works tirelessly to make things work. Thank you Heather.

At this point in time, even following the Christmas Hamper distribution, your bank has food on the shelves and some money in the (other kind of) bank. Thus, as usual, there are no planned food drives in the near future, but your regular till tape and food donations are always welcomed. Your help is appreciated by those you have helped – nameless though they be.

And never forget, if you have even a small need for food assistance, or know someone who does, please contact myself or Heather. There’s help, and it’s confidential.

Thank you all and Merry Christmas everyone! God bless! Happy New Year!

Thank You From Northgate Church

Northgate Church recently hosted a week long children’s program but we didn’t do it alone, and we want our community to recognize just how much we appreciate them!

First, we’d like to thank our Fields Store for all the wonderful prizes that they donated for the kids on our final day. THANK YOU! Then we’d like to thank the Legion for their kind donation of the popcorn and cotton candy machines – along with the supplies to make them! What a generous donation! THANK YOU! We’d also like to mention, the willingness of our village workers who emptied our garbage bin BEFORE our event started on Monday so that we could “play” at the back of the church without incident. THANK YOU!

And finally, a huge THANK YOU to everyone in our plaza; merchants and villagers, who kindly put up with VERY excited children all week. We are blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community. Northgate Church Gold River

Via the GR Tourist Info Centre;

The other day I had a couple walk into the info centre and they wanted me to pass on a message for the community to see. I guess they went into Super Valu and the cashier Michele did something so nice that they wanted her to be recognized. They wouldn’t tell me what she did, but it was something that they were very thankful for.

So Michele, please know that your random act of kindness was appreciated so much by these tourists.
