LETTER: Cathy’s Corner Cafe ‘Citizen of the Year’

On behalf of all who took part in Cathy’s Corner Cafe free Christmas dinner last week, I’m sending a huge thank you to her, her daughter and the staff who put so much time, effort and expense into rewarding the people of Sooke for their support of the business.

The meal was excellent as usual, with lots of food.

This letter is also a request to Sooke residents to please show their appreciation by supporting the restaurant. The food is excellent, the staff are friendly and courteous, and the prices are reasonable.

If more businesses in Sooke would show their appreciation instead of increasing their prices and whining about shoppers going out of town to buy, maybe more Sooke residents would shop local. Let’s give it some thought.

And again, please support Cathy, who supports us. They are the “Citizens of The Year.”
