A kettle full of thanks

Sherry Baker, Lonne Clark and myself are involved with The Salvation Army Kettle Drive in Whistler and Pemberton, from ringing the bells at the Kettle stations to organizing the campaign.

This year was another wonderful giving year of generous donations, which helps so many in need in our Sea to Sky corridor and we just had to thank everyone involved.

Once again the good people of Pemberton, under the supervision of Lonne Clark, raised just over half of the total with one Kettle in front of the Pemberton Valley Supermarket and two very generous individual donations.

Whistler did extremely well too with our three Kettles and the generosity of our locals and wonderful guests. The winner, of course, is The Salvation Army and all of the less fortunate families that will benefit from the efforts of all involved in Whistler and Pemberton.

Thanks to all involved, this is always my best Christmas present.

John McGregor
