VISITORS: Canadians appreciate kindness

My husband and I were on our way home to Canada last week and stopped for fuel at 3 Mile Corner in Bonners Ferry. When I went to pay with my Canadian debit card, it was declined. I went back out to our truck to get my Visa card and returned to the cashier. Imagine my surprise when the cashier informed me that the gentleman behind me had paid my $59 fuel bill!

We were so touched by his gesture and have already “paid it forward” in a couple of small ways! Many, many thanks to that gentleman … we wish we could thank you face to face!

VISITORS: Sign provides welcome

What a beautiful sign the city has erected by our visitors center to welcome people to our community. Providing a warm welcome to visitors is an enticement to learn more about our town and area by stopping at the Visitors Center.

For those who come as new residents to our county, the sign resonates that people who want to be a positive addition, who want to find constructive solutions to issues that arise in a community, who want our community to thrive in a caring atmosphere, and who want to enjoy and help maintain the beauty of our area, you are welcome. The signs that are seen around our town and county, “Love Lives Here,” add to the welcoming greeting provided by the city and reflects what our community wants to be.

Elsie Hollenbeck, Bonners Ferry
