    Super Neighbour

    by Cinnamon , over 1 year ago

    I would like to take this opportunity to recognize our super neighbour, Melissa Scime, who went out of her way to help during our quarantine, after our arrival from the deep south.

    She not only, went grocery shopping for us, she picked up a birthday cake for our disabled son, and then went back to town to pick up pizza for his birthday.

    by jennifer , over 1 year ago

    I would like to nominate my neighbour, i am a essential worker and had to go to shift work for demand production, she is taking care of me by cooking me meals and sending them frozen to heat up, she has also been making meals for frontline workers (nurses) who are living in trailers or without their kids. they are exhausted and last thing they should have to worry about is cooking a meal. She has gone above and beyond to help anyone by asking if anyone needs food (pasta etc)

    A Sweet Surpise

    by Mellisa, over 1 year ago

    I was so thrilled to receive a tim Hortons gift card on my way to work the other day! After doing some digging I found out the card was from Ashley Greer. Through her small business (The Robyn’s Nest) she organized a fundraiser for random acts of kindness to all front line workers. She contacted me recently about who to go to for some hand sewn masks. All us front line workers are so appreciative of the support and those that go above and beyond for us

    Always Working

    by Bob, over 1 year ago

    When I think of a Community Hero during the Covid 19 Pandemic, one person comes to mind, well actually two; Jim and Jane Harrison.

    Whether it is the flooding issue, or Covid 19 or whatever is bothering or effecting our community we have always had the best representation in Jim Harrison. If not for his tireless efforts we would not be the community we are today.
