HAVE YOUR SAY: Please return ‘priceless’ items from stolen purse

On Feb. 24 at 4:30 I was in the Driftwood Mall, where I work.

On Feb. 24 at 4:30 I was in the Driftwood Mall, where I work. I was standing in front of Northern Reflections when I set down my purse to carry a couple items into the store. When I returned less than a minute later it was gone. The silver lining was I had my keys and cellphone in my pocket. In my purse was all my ID, debit cards, credit cards and a few very sentimental items — i.e. my grandmother’s Bible, a pog I won for my dad when I was six (after losing the majority of my collection for him, he has since passed away) and my journal that I use to take notes during sermons and presentations at church. Finding my phone and having my keys in my pocket was such a blessing in amongst the chaos and I am so grateful but it has also left me more frustrated. There was literally nothing of value in there that someone could make a dollar off of. I had no cash on me and only some foreign coin from friends’ travels. The things in there were priceless to me. I am asking whoever took my purse or to anyone who knows who took it, to please return it to the Driftwood Mall office anonymously. Losing those sentimental pieces and the idea of never seeing them again has really left my heart aching.

A big thank you to the volunteers from the local Toastmaster clubs who attended the February meeting of the Home-Based and Small Business Association. Your “demo meeting” was very informative and inspirational for the guest speaker portion of our meeting. We appreciate your time to expose Toastmasters to our members and guests.

St. George’s United Church Strawberry Tea Committee wish to thank the Comox Valley media for their wonderful support again this year! We are so grateful to all of you for helping us with our events.  This year we had 230 people attend our tea. This would not happen without your support and also the response we enjoy from an amazing, caring community. Blessings and appreciation to everyone!
