In October 2016, Bill and I reluctantly left Burns Lake – our home for 42 years – to be closer to our growing family.
While we enjoy our kids and grandkids and the amenities of the “big city” of Courtenay, we miss our little town and friends “back home.” The arrival in our mailbox of the Lakes District News is an occasion of delight.
Even after nine months in the “big city,” the sound of mail being deposited in our mailbox is a thrill. On Wednesday I opened the lid to see an intriguing sight: the top half of the front page of the June 28 Lakes District News, with the headline ‘Meet the new Burns Lake doctors’ beside a photo of two of the cutest little physicians I ever did see.
“My goodness,” I thought, “I know it’s hard to find doctors willing to go north, but these ones seem a bit young.”
The article, of course, continued on page 7 with photos of the actual doctors, and the cuties, of course, were participants in the June 21 Aboriginal Days.
I spent the rest of the day, however, imagining whether their “new model of care” would be built of playdough or Lego.
Thanks for brightening my day. Keep up the excellent work.
