    Love my neighbor

    by Truelove, 3 days ago
    My neighbor is a very kind and helpful person. I cant count how many times they have helped me.

    The winter can be tasking sometimes with my schedule and workload. I can always count on Terry to bring over the snowblower when we get a big dump and help clear away all that heavy snow for me.

    I am very blessed to have such wonderful neighbors as Terry and Sharon!

    snow angel on my street

    by Jean Young, 4 days ago
    Every time it snows, our neighbour Dan gets his machine out and not only does my driveway he goes along and does about 4 other places. I have seen him stay out for hours, covered in snow with a big smile on his face and will not take any money from any of us. He does this out of the kindness of his heart and knowing I have health issues does my place right after his. I have seen him come back out after the the snow plows come and cover our driveways again. This man deserves to win....

    Submitted By: ATonelli

    We would like to nominate both of the wonderful Bob and Colleen. The minute the snow falls, Bob get his snowblower and Colleen grabs a shovel. They not only do their driveway, they do a minimum of 4 more driveways. Every. Single. Snowfall. It’s amazing, they are wonderful and we are so very thankful they live across the street.

    Local Snow Angel

    Brian clears several driveways. Many in this area are seniors and find clearing snow very difficult. He goes out in all kinds of weather to make sure they don't have to.

    Our amazing neighbour!

    by SheilaA, 11 months ago

    We do have a snow removal service, but are fortunate to have our own neighbourhood "Snow Angel" who clears a pathway if the service hasn't arrived early enough for us to leave for an early morning appointment. Jamie is the first to help other neighbours who are out clearing their driveways...many hands make light work must be his motto! We are delighted to recommend that Jamie be recognised as a Snow Angel!

    Secret Snow Angel

    by Cdecarie, 11 months ago

    On snowy days, we drive home from a long day at work, thinking that waiting for us there is either a driveway full of snow or the dreaded “plow pile” at the end of the driveway—or both. However, we often arrive home to find a clean driveway with the telltale clean edge of a snowblower. All of neighbours’ drives are clean with the same telltale clean edge. None of us have a snowblower, except for one. Our snow angel is stealthy and modest. We are all very grateful.

    Midland Park Playground Snow Angels

    by Bayley, 11 months ago

    This morning in the Midland Park subdivision we had two young snow angels. They shovelled the sidewalk to the park and then proceeded into the park. They wanted to do their part in keeping the path clear to the playground. Thank you boys!

    A neighbourhood snow angel!

    by Janet L Mitchell, 11 months ago

    No matter how much shoveling he has done at his own house, Micah regularly shows up to neighbours houses and just starts shoveling. He perseveres until he is completely finished and then moves on to the next house. Micah methodically and tidily cleans entire driveways just because "he likes to shovel and help people". What an amazing young man.

    good neighbour!

    by elaine lowen, 12 months ago

    This neighbour is always helping out when the need is there. It is so nice to arrive home after a long day of highway travelling to find our driveway cleared after a heavy snow storm. Very thoughtful of him.

    Happy helpers

    by simpsonburns , 12 months ago

    My brother always goes to some of our near neighbors early morning shoveling their drive way without being asked,, if it needs to be done twice in one day he will make sure it's done! My 9year old is starting to be like his uncle and really enjoys shoveling just as much as my brother,, so the 2 of them will do it together sometimes 😊!! Just want their story to be seen, and spread to everyone!
