Greetings for Returnees

Thursday, July 27, 2017 @ 7:46 PM

Williams Lake, B.C. – Evacuees who  took advantage of the rescinding of an order that forced them from their Williams Lake homes on July 15th  received a warm welcome  as they returned to their  community.

The very folks who have been protecting property and  securing the  area to ensure  property  was safe while owners were away,  took  the time to  fashion their own  welcome home sign, shown above.

RCMP and the  Canadian Armed Forces  positioned this  welcome sign alongside  highway 97.



ELAINE !!! STOP IT !!! … every time I read one of your fire Evac stories… I find myself choking up and tearing up and spilling tears of empathy … then I gotta go wash my face.
I suspect I am not the only one who has to do so.

But….. Thanks for all your excellent work.


Stories of altruism in action, of sympathy and empathy, of generosity and caring, of friendship and hard working volunteers are worthwhile reading, positive and reassuring. I much prefer them to negative stories. Please keep reporting about the positive side of humanity!

Help me on this one. There are 500,1000 men, fire trucks, water guns, helicopters and water bombers scooping water off lakes and then there is the family that saved there home with a garden hose.

Is this another story were, “Creaser didelld while Rome burned”

Either someone missed taking their meds, or he/she really needs to live up to their name and “Retire” from making nonsensical comments, or at the very least learn how to either spell or use spell-check.

Creaser? Didelld?
