LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Beefs & Bouquets bring a little bit of enjoyment

The part of the paper I look forward to each week is the Beefs & Bouquets, says letter writer

To the editor,

Coming to your community 13 years ago, we were introduced to your paper. The part of the paper I look forward to each week is the Beefs & Bouquets. I have continued to look forward to it each week.

Reading many community and city papers over my lifetime, they never have anything like this other then the editorial section which as you know is limited because of space.

It’s the community soapbox to get something off your chest of what’s on your mind. Some are thanking, mad, and some are just funny. So a big thank you for having this. I hope you never get rid of this part of enjoyment.

Grant Shaw, Nanaimo
