An opportunity to pass on your thanks and greavances

The Rossland News is re-inventing a common newspaper feature which will allow Rossland residents the opportunity to recognize the good deeds, or not so good deeds, of others in our community.

Often times you experience a kind gesture from a stranger or even a neighbour that you later realize wasn’t acknowledged as much it should have been.

Or in contrast, the action of another person may have upset you or been viewed as unnecessary.

The Rossland News is re-inventing a common newspaper feature which will allow Rossland residents the opportunity to recognize the good deeds, or not so good deeds, of others in our community.

The Sunshine Cafe will be sponsoring this feature and it has fittingy been named “Sunshine and Storm Clouds.”

This is your opportunity to share your thanks or dimay for the actions of  others. This is your chance to give praise where it is due and remind others of the importance of being kind neighbours in our city.

There is no charge to submit a comment.

If you would like to send a ray of sunshine to someone for something kind or a sky full of storm clouds to someone who may have been less than kind, you have the opportunity to do so by sending your contributions to advertising@rosslandnews.com or by dropping off at a note at the Rossland News office at 2114 Columbia Ave. in Rossland.

The Rossland News would like to remind everyone that this is not to be a forum to embarrass anyone by naming names, particularly in the instance of a lack of good judgement.

Then we too would be wished numerous thunder clouds.

In fact, part of the fun of reading this new feature may be trying to figure out to whom they are referring!
