Thanks to amazing Valley people

I would like to express my deepest thanks and enormous gratitude to some of the most amazing people I know and some of you that I don't know. I was lucky enough to experience the true meaning of this community and I want to send my thanks to many people.

First to the Moose Lodge that does so much for this Valley that people are not aware of. They held an auction, dinner and dance to help me pay off medical bills not covered by insurance during my long battle with breast cancer. They had help from many local residents and businesses who donated items and gift certificates for services.

In addition, cash was donated into a benefit account in my name by anonymous individuals.

And last, I want to thank the people who donated their time to make it all possible.

To all of you who have made such a difference to my family, we can never thank you enough.

All of our love,

Melodie, Bryce, Spencer and Paige MacEwan
