Disasters unite people … and we are so grateful for that
On Sunday afternoon while my husband and I were on the First Street bridge to see and photograph the flood for ourselves, a lady came up and asked if we had seen the damage of the fallen trees in the cemetery on Aberdeen Avenue. We left immediately to go to the cemetery. We drove right to the main drive where our daughter’s grave is. We could not believe our eyes ... branches were strewn everywhere. We began hauling the branches and piling them all along the main boulevard next to the standing trees. It wasn’t long before a young couple came and asked if they could help us. We carried and dragged everything in piles. These two young people were so gracious in what they did to help us in our distress. Tragedies bring out the best in all people. We will always remember these young people ... they stayed until everything was cleared and helped us. We were so grateful.
Hospital grounds need a cleanup
Does the Brandon hospital not have any staff members to look after the grounds maintenance? On both sides of the main entrance, the green area/flower beds are a mess! Certainly not a asset to the overall appearance of the hospital. I know they have nursing homes that are looked after very well, so why not the hospital?
Thank you for your kindness
We would like to say thank you to the people who picked up our dinner tab at Patches on Sunday, a table of nine from the Salvation Army. Thank you for your kindness. God bless you. Brandon has so many wonderful people.
Turn focus on BU
Thank you to the Brandon Sun for reporting on salaries both within the Brandon School Division and the City of Brandon. Now please turn your attention to Brandon University. Given the labour strife there, perhaps it would be useful to see a story about salaries earned by both union leaders and administration.
Good thing we chose Larry
Thank goodness that Larry Maguire won the election for MP for this area because it wouldn’t do us a whole lot of good having Justin Trudeau flying around in a helicopter. That guy can’t really do much for us, but having the prime minister here lets you know something is going to happen.
