Good Sa­mar­i­tans walk among us

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

MY hus­band and I were driv­ing to­ward Con­fu­sion Cor­ner when the slip­pery road got the best of us, and we ended up with a se­verely dam­aged tire.

We were able to limp into a park­ing lot, and as we tried to change the tire, it be­came ob­vi­ous the bolts on the wheel, were, like us, go­ing nowhere. Luck­ily, we had landed in Glas­gow Col­li­sion Cen­tre’s lot and a kind man named Gary Ni­col came out, as­sessed the prob­lem and re­turned with the nec­es­sary tools.

He changed our tire and had the dam­aged one in our trunk be­fore we even had a chance to warm up in­side the cen­tre.

Thank you, Gary, for prov­ing that Good Sa­mar­i­tans walk among us.

The Fort Garry Ho­tel’s grand ball­room played host to a trib­ute to Ice­land Con­sul Gen­eral Atli Ås­munds­son, who is re­tir­ing af­ter nine years in the po­si­tion. The Ice­landic news­pa­per, Log­berg-Heim­skringla, or­ga­nized the evening’s fes­tiv­i­ties.
