There are still good people

I just wanted to give some kudos to a staff at a local business (long overdue).

I just wanted to give some kudos to a staff at a local business (long overdue).

Thank you to the Old Farm Market.

I grew up in the Cowichan Valley, and enjoy my visits to the “homeland” but even moreso due to a recent gesture of good will by possibly citizen(s) and definitely employees of the Old Farm Market. I believe it was Sunday, Aug. 16 — a very busy day at the Old Farm Market and I was distracted with a personal matter. I must have put my wallet down while shopping and when I went to the till I realize that I had lost it. I asked if there was a lost and found and I was directed to the back, where the staff had my wallet, with all the contents still there.

You have no idea how relieved I was! Losing my wallet would have made a stressful time in my life all the more stressful. Instead, I got a reminder that there are still good people out there, and in particular, in the Cowichan Valley. Thank you! With sincere gratitude,


Deborah Cooper
