Snow is coming!!
Please remember that although we are lucky to have Green Dream Landscapes helping us with snow removal slippery sidewalks, snow-covered cars, and cold temperatures can still be a challenge for many of our members. We encourage you to be a good neighbour and help shovel your neighbour’s sidewalk if and when you are able – be cheerful and helpful whenever you can be!
