Golden Angels

John and Penny Shapperd are the owners of TRU Hardware store in Golden, BC.
 
When the couple is not busy with the store, they commit their free time to helping their neighbors and friends. John is an avid fisherman and enjoys sharing his skills with others. “So, whenever I sell a fly fishing package, I also show the customer how to tie all the knots and offer a free casting lesson”, John explains. 
 
On the other hand, Penny spearheads a group of volunteers with the cleanup, pruning and maintenance of a seniors’ residence garden in their town called Abbeyfield.
 
At Christmas time, they set up an “Angel Tree” in their store. It is a tree that has angel shaped ornaments representing the wishes of the less fortunate children in the community.
Customers take home an angel and return with a wrapped gift for the child. John and Penny, long time residents of Golden are committed to supporting the community that has supported them.
