Paying it forward

Patrons and staff at a coffee shop in Red Deer’s Southpointe Common are basking in the after-glow of a random and sustained act of kindness. Coralie Frugerre, pictured, who works at the Second Cup store operated by her mother, Julie Jolicoeur, said it all started late Saturday afternoon when a regular customer left an extra $5 to cover the coffee for the car behind his. That person passed the good cheer along, as did the car behind it. The chain reaction was still running at 5 p.m. when Frugerre left for the day. She learned on Sunday that one customer’s selfless act ended up with 81 customers passing good will along the line. That’s a new record for store, said Frugerre. The last one she knows of ran for a series of seven.
