Thanks to Grand Forks RCMP. The tour you gave our children was full of great information and lasting impressions.

This week's edition of Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down.

Thumbs Up: To the person, who found my keys and left them at the Overwaitea so they could check, tag and call me. Thank you so much.

Thumbs Down: Boxes left in the middle of the road, especially when it’s snowing. That’s how accidents happen.

Thumbs Up: To the RCMP. The tour you gave our children was full of great information and lasting impressions. A memory that will last our family forever.
