So back in January, I got one of the best phone calls a president of a community league can receive. A community league member reached out because over the past year, with covid and craziness, they'd had a rough year. And through that year, their neighbours had really helped them keep going. From errands, to shovelling walks, to just being there, John and Betty Keinholz told me that their neighbours had made all the difference this past year. So to honour that kindness and friendship, John and Betty made a donation to the community league. Which I think is a fabulous way to pay forward kindness.
So to the neighbours of John and Betty – thank you for being fabulous.
I hope everyone is looking forward to spring like I am – stay tuned for the second season of our community garden; keep an eye on the community page for soccer updates and please join us virtually on March 18th at 7pm for our AGM. We will have participation from municipal, provincial and federal government, voting on executive positions for the community board and we are hoping to have updates from the city on the upcoming changes to waste collection and public transit routes. There may even be prizes!
Enjoy the sunshine Greenfield – its going to feel sooooo good. As always, don't forget to purchase your Community League Membership for 2020/21.
