December Column

Dear neighbours,

My family is already getting into the holiday spirit and I am guessing many of you are too. Christmas holidays are a great time to make new memories and spend important time with our friends and family. During the holidays, my family and I try to remember those in the community who are less fortunate and may need assistance to make the holidays special for their families.

November Column

Dear neighbours,

I hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween. I was pleased to attend numerous Community Association AGM’s during the month of October and as always enjoyed receiving resident’s feedback.

October Column
