To the whole Community of Gold River
we Thank You for a great response to our Food Drive on Sunday the 19th.
These donations will surely fill our Christmas Hampers
and stock our shelves for the New Year.
Our sincere appreciation to our “Christmas Elves”
who go door to door, rain or shine.
Heather Warwick and Pastor Rob Hoffman
On Saturday May 27 at the Plaza at 9 a.m., a cheery hard-working group of volunteers showed up to get the flower boxes ready for the Canada Day 150 Celebration. The boxes were weeded, shrubs trimmed, new soil applied, and many red and white annuals planted.
A great big thank you to the following people: Joanne Folkins, Marcel Miner, Julie Schimunek (who planted the box by Westgate Church two weeks ago), and the Junior Rangers–Hayden, Julien, Genie, Ben, Jordie–and their leaders–Victoria Lempke, Theresa Beer, and Brenda Laroche. And thank you, Henry and Susanne of Eagle’s Wings, for the refreshing lemonade and watermelon. Thank you as well to Lisa Mellis-Jones for her assistance with the clean-up.
I trust I didn’t miss anyone. If I did, please let me know right away. Also, a big thank you to JT Pangli, owner of the Plaza, for his donation to purchase the annuals from the Timber Mart’s Garden Center. Thank you, Brigitte, for helping us get what we needed for the planting!
Canada Day is fast approaching. There are many ways to be involved. The slightly revised final program will be posted by June 15, 2017Email This Post
I would like to take the time to thank everyone at the Rod & Gun Club for the amazing event placed on Saturday May 27th. Everyone who helped out with the shooting, gold panning, archery, pig roast, silent auction and dinner made it a great day. My daughter had a blast and created some grand memories.

The Gold River Childcare Society and Little Dinosaur’s Childcare Centre, would like to send out a huge thank-you to the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary for their generous donation allowing us to purchase a much needed new vacuum.
We are a non-profit society, so it is donations like these that allow us to continue to offer quality and affordable childcare to the community.
Thank you so much!Email This Post
We would like to say thank you to everyone near and far for all they have done for us.
Words just cannot express how grateful we are to all of you for the love and caring you have shown.
Since I have been sick, the amount of support and offers to help have been overwhelming.
I cannot say enough about living in the loving, caring town of Gold River.
I have a long road ahead of me with my chemotherapy, so please check in with me from time to time.
Thank you for all of your prayers, thoughts and continued support.

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:
c/o 1661 Fell Street
Victoria, BC V8R4V8
All healing vibes welcomed.
The Anderson Kids
