Free flu clinics much appreciated

Living here in the small community of Sorrento has its challenges, as well as its ups and downs

Living here in the small community of Sorrento has its challenges, as well as its ups and downs. But, above all, since moving here permanently two years ago from big-city Calgary, I must admit we are impressed and grateful for all the services and amenities provided to both inhabitants and visitors who come to enjoy this lovely area.

Above all, at this time of year I would like to send out a special thanks to the local pharmacy that has, once again, provided a free flu clinic which is both convenient and appreciated. This one service alone says much about the small towns and villages that make up the area.

Many thanks to our pharmacy and to all those other stores, clinics and locations that provide this much-needed medical service.

Therefore, supporting local businesses, public facilities such as the library and community centres and family-run stores, which provide many services, will keep us all thriving well into the future.
