Be a Snow Angel - Adopt a Sidewalk!
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.
