Ward 14 News: Be a Snow Angel - adopt a sidewalk!

  • Share

Ward 14 official website 

Based on the amount of snow that we’ve received recently, you might not have thought much about shovelling this year.  But for people like Andrea Foster—a single older lady with a long driveway—it’s a bigger deal than you might think.

Eric Bode has taken it upon himself to clear his neighbour’s driveways and sidewalks—including Andrea’s.  In total, he shovels for four of his next-door neighbours, and the one across the street “if he can get there before he does”.  In Lake Bonavista, where the driveways and frontages are long, that is a tall order.

After asking around, Andrea finally figured who had done the good deed.  She was so appreciative she offered Eric a Tim Horton’s gift card and a Keg gift card.  Eric refused his reward.  He just likes to make someone’s day a bit easier, even with his new snow blower.

To Eric, he is, “out there anyway and why not help your neighbours,” but his kind act makes a big difference.

Eric is a Snow Angel to Andrea and others.  As the Councillor of this great Ward, I am privileged to see many selfless acts like Eric’s, but the more Snow Angels the better.  If you are able, I encourage you to help your neighbours out like Eric has.
