This week April 20 to 26 was Volunteer Week
We want to wrap it up by drawing attention to the incredible effort and dedication we have with the Ottewell group of Volunteers!
We couldn’t operate without this group that gather every week virtually to ensure we keep our members informed and safe!
The Community League has chosen to support the community’s families in need, through our school community.
A shout out to thank the following local family businesses for their support of the Ottewell Community and their support for families in need.
Steve and Dan’s online Farmers Market – providing fresh fruit.
Gull Valley Greenhouse – providing fresh vegetables.
The Friendly Neighborhood Window Cleaner
Spring has arrived with the bright sunlight shinning in the window! I couldn’t help but notice all the winter dirt has left such a film that you can barely see through my living room windows. I thought to myself… I will get to those someday!
That someday arrived sooner than I thought, my neighbor rang my doorbell with a bucket and squidgy in hand, and said; “Hey, I want to clean your windows. I just cleaned mine and thought of you. This is what neighbors do to support each other!”
Take Care of each other Ottewell!
People are More Friendly and Outgoing
We try to walk in our neighbourhood everyday. Sometimes we would see people walking, but not often, and usually with their dog.
Well things have changed somewhat since Covid-19! Now we see so many people walking, and one difference is that we often see families with children. They seem so happy as they pass, and smile and say hi. There are the dog walkers, and people of all ages. It seems that our quiet little area has come to life! Just the other Saturday, as we turned out of our street, all the neighbours were in their own yards in Lawn Chairs, greeting passerby’s. People seem more friendly. There seems to be a renewed sense of Community, and hopefulness.
So keep going out, smile at the people you pass, and we will get through this terrible time with hope and a sense of what is important!
We’re improving drainage services in Edmonton neighbourhoods
Our Drainage Neighbourhood Rehabilitation Program focuses on the renewal and replacement of public sanitary and storm sewers to reduce the possibility of sewer back-ups and minimize service disruptions.In combination with the City of Edmonton’s Neighbourhood Renewal Program (focused on the renewal and rebuilding of roads, sidewalks, and streetlights) and the Great Neighbourhoods Capital Program (focused on improving the livability of Edmonton neighbourhoods), our Drainage Neighbourhood Rehabilitation program aims to renew physical infrastructure and help create vibrant, sustainable neighbourhoods in Edmonton.
