Virtue Is Its Own Reward

By LaVerne Quennell

I often experience the graciousness and goodness of fellow Edmontonians, whether it is holding the door open for me, opening a space in traffic or just a friendly smile.

The other day while shopping, I laid my keys and wallet down while looking at something. It was not until several minutes later I realized they were missing. In a panic, I retraced my steps several times and finally went to customer service only to have a gentleman approach and ask my identity. He then handed me my wallet and keys. The wallet contained several hundred dollars but he refused a reward. He represents what Edmonton is about.
