To the good folks of Chemainus I have met through my employment at the Government Liquor Store.
It is with mixed emotions that I tell you I have retired from my post as your clerk, wine advisor, beer consultant, empty return specialist and wedding advisor.
I have worked at this location through two postings for a total of 15 of my 37 years with the Liquor Distribution Branch.
I would like to thank each and every one of you for your patronage, including your smiles, greetings and chats as well as your approval of my choice of music.
So, I say to you all “cheers” from the guy in the store “where everybody knows my name.” I might not know yours but I hope to never forget your faces. Maybe we’ll see each other shopping, walking, beaching at Fuller Lake or watching grandkids on the ice at Fuller Lake Arena.
Take care of yourselves and each other.
