HAVE YOUR SAY: Supporter wants Harmston Park to stay as is

Many seniors who live in this area can no longer afford a car. They enjoy walking through Harmston Park on their way to downtown.

Many seniors who live in this area can no longer afford a car. They enjoy walking through Harmston Park on their way to downtown. We were thrilled when the City planted trees and built a good gravel path through the park. I live in Kiwanis Village and a steady stream of walkers pass my home daily, cross the track to Seventh Street and the park. Many live in the Tenth Street Apartments. This past summer, it was usual to see families having picnics under under those big plane trees. In the past, St. George’s Church has held functions there. Other groups as well. I have seen many folks out with their frisbees. It is not a big park but it is all we have in this area of low-cost housing. Surely Bill Moore Park is big enough to allow a section to be set aside for a dog run. Actually I thought that big dogs would prefer the beach area.

Giant thank you’ go out to Jim Revenburg from Comox Valley Nissan and his wonderful staff, salesman Brandon Longson and finance manager Nathan McCarty, for their excellent customer service and treating us like family. We went in about one hour before closing to test drive a few SUVs and I ended up driving home in a brand new Murano. They stayed late for us, tied up all loose ends first thing in the morning, and had everything ready for us the next day. Because I drove it home that night it hadn’t been fully detailed, they picked it up from our house and brought it to the dealership to detail it inside and out, made sure everything was running smooth, ensured all fluids were topped up, and that the undercoat was done then returned it to us in looking more brand new then it already was. We highly recommend Comox Valley Nissan to anyone looking for a new vehicle. The family-friendly atmosphere will make you feel right at home, making the decision an easy one to purchase through them. We have never had such great service when purchasing a new vehicle! Thank you guys for all your help and for making this a smooth and fast process.

Wow and thank you! The Auto Spa at Chuck’s Trucks detailed every nook and cranny of my car interior, which now looks like new and smells great. There’s not a speck of dust anywhere! Even though I purchased a gift certificate at a silent auction, Derek and his meticulous team went the extra mile as true professionals who take pride in their work.

I would like to send out a BIG THANK YOU to all the businesses that let me place the petition for Chum and Champ in their stores and business. I would also like to send out a huge thank you to everyone that signed the petition and supported us with this, every signal signature meant a lot to us (supporters of Chum and Champ) and the owners of these two dogs, and another big thank you to the Comox Valley Record for posting more stories to bring out the story of Chum and Champ and to let everyone know more about them. Thank you.
