Time for Sylvan Lake News team to take credit

Thumbs up to the Sylvan Lake News which constantly has positive and uplifting stories to read.

Dear Editor,

Thumbs up to the Sylvan Lake News which constantly has positive and uplifting stories to read.

After reading Steve Dills’ article on the generosity of the Sylvan Lake community, I couldn’t agree more. Though, I would like to mention that Mr. Dills, editor and photographer, is a great factor to all of this.

Every week I look forward to reading all the events that has happened in our town. Our children or grandchildren’s baby book are surely filled with pictures of their class or school.

Businesses and stores are always commended for their great charity donations and community programs are grateful and acknowledge the donors.

This paper has become a scrapbooking project of mine with cutting and pasting or sending pictures to our relatives. Bulletin boards and framed pictures remind us of all the proud moments. These pictures inspire us to do more and always seem to put a smile on our face.

It’s wonderful to have a newspaper which eagerly shares and allows us to be a witness of all the good this town has to offer.

Mr. Dills, you talk about the spirit of Christmas and as humble as you may be, it’s time for you and your team to take the credit in all of this. I want to thank you for the gift you’ve given us when you’ve been so supporting by being there when we call you to take pictures and writing our stories that we are so proud to share with others.

Merry Christmas and God bless you.

Joanne Sikma,

Sylvan Lake
