HEROES & ZEROS – To the staff of Associated Tire: I want to say thank you so much for getting me back on the road. But most of all, I want to say thank you for not treating me like an old woman who knows nothing about cars. Which is exactly what happened at a larger tire company who had my van for a week and did not do any of the work, not even the tires got put on. Lots of Zeros to them. I may be an older lady – 67 – with a handicap tag and an older van. But I held my class one licence with air for 25 years. I am also an ex-racer and demolition driver. I have my class 6 as well. I do believe I know a thing of two about vehicles. So, please visualize the most beautiful bouquet of flowers for the staff at Associated Tire. You are the Heroes. – Loretta Lynch
HEROES – Linda Spooner and the Storm team. They have gone above and beyond to make the Residents of New Horizons feel welcome and at home. This was the residents’ first Storm Game and because of the great Hospitality, it was a great success! Thank you, from the Residents and staff at New Horizons. – Arlou Harris, Administrative Assistant, New Horizons community of Care
