There are still some hon­est peo­ple around. Many thanks for the kind­ness.

Movie pass a mar­vel­lous treat

WE would like to ac­knowl­edge the fel­low who gave us a free movie pass on our way from the park­ing lot by the Bay to the St. Vi­tal Cen­tre movie theatre.

We used it, saw a great movie, Joy, and much ap­pre­ci­ated the kind­ness.

We ne­glected to wish this gen­tle­man a happy new year and hope he reads this.

It is so re­fresh­ing and en­cour­ag­ing to have met some­one with such thought­ful­ness.

Thank you, and all the best to you in 2016, kind sir.

Stranger picked up cou­ple’s tab

MY wife and I, and two other cou­ples, went to spend New Year’s Eve at McPhillips Sta­tion Casino.

My wife and I ar­rived at 3 p.m. to stand in line at the restau­rant for din­ner.

We met a gen­tle­man from St. Nor­bert and a cou­ple from Win­nipeg who were also wait­ing in line.

They tried to help me change the time on my cell­phone from a 24-hour clock to 12-hour. Our other friends ar­rived, and we all chat­ted as we waited in line.

We all went in for our sup­per, and they sat sev­eral ta­bles away from us. When they were leav­ing, they passed our ta­ble, and the gen­tle­man from St. Nor­bert said, “I paid for your din­ner.”

We thought he was fool­ing. Af­ter they left, the wait­ress came and said the gen­tle­man from St. Nor­bert had paid the bill for all six of us.

We never had the chance to thank you. Please ac­cept our pro­found thanks.

Dra­matic restau­rant res­cue

WHILE hav­ing din­ner with my mom and her friend on New Year’s Day at the South­land Restau­rant, I choked on a piece of food.

I knew I was in trou­ble in­stantly and stood up look­ing for help.

A fam­ily walked into the restau­rant, and the father could see my dis­tress and im­me­di­ately came to help me. He pounded on my back and then gave me the Heim­lich ma­noeu­vre.

The food dis­lodged from my throat, and thank­fully, I could breathe again.

I didn’t get his name but want to send this won­der­ful man a huge thank you for im­me­di­ately com­ing to my res­cue.
