Letters to the Editor

Thanks to many fine people

Editor: This is a letter of thanks.

As a single parent of three, to be able to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table is struggle enough, let alone deal with the little extras for each child on their birthdays and this time of year — Christmas.

I write this letter to give thanks to all those who have helped to put a smile on each of my children’s faces, not only at this time of year, but throughout the year. Thanks also to those who have helped me along the way

So thank you to the following:

r Harry and all at the Langley Community Resource centre, and their efforts in helping me find a job.

r Helen and all those who volunteer at the Langley Food Bank.

r Ivan and the volunteers at Pass it Along.

r Gail and all those who work and volunteer at Big Brothers and Big Sisters.

r Anita,who is new to me and my children, but is here to help me get my life back in order.

r All those at the Langley Christmas Bureau and the companies who have been so generous.

r Krista Bowes, the community co-ordinator at Douglas Park Community school. Without her hard work and dedication, the Lunch Program, Booster Camp Explorations, etc would not be.

r I’d also like to thank the staff and teachers at Douglas Park as well.

r Michelle and the wonderful staff at Douglas Park Community Daycare centre.

My biggest thanks of all goes to Kim and Thom and the rest of the wonderful volunteers at the Langley Boys & Girls Club. Your hard work and dedication has secured a safe and happy after-school place for not only my three angels to go to, but all the others.

Thank you to each and every one of you, for all your generosity and help.

I’d also like to thank all those who donate and contribute in other ways to the above- mentioned places.

Carol Anderson,
