  • An awesome young man

    by Jean M, 9 months ago

    Tyler age 13 cleans my driveway either with a snowblower or with a shovel Even as a little fellow he helped his Dad do the job and now he does it on his own. I can always count on him to get the job done.

    He is a busy young fellow with lots of sports and extra circular activities but always has time to do my driveway

    He is a credit to our neighbourhood and he gets my vote for an amazing snow angel 

    Thanks Tyler Routheut

  • So grateful!

    by Juliesandhar, 9 months ago

    I am so fortunate to have my in-laws living a few doors away for so many reasons.

    It’s not uncommon for me to hear the rumbling of my father in-law’s snowblower early in the morning as he comes to clear my driveway and brush off my car before I leave for work. He then goes up the road to clear my neighbours driveway too. Truthfully I should be the one clearing the snow for him. Sincerest thanks Roger Johnson. I am so grateful for my “Snow Angel”!!!

  • Coleman Snow Angel

    by Jerlee16, 9 months ago

    Jose (Joe) Is our neighborhood Snow Angel. Without even asking, Joe is always lending a hand during the bad weather. 2 winters ago, even with a leg injury, he would go house to house and clear everyone's driveways. No matter how bad the snow is falling, you will see Joe out there snow blowing away neighbors driveways and always with a smile.

  • Ryan the Angel

    by Kim793, 9 months ago

    To start with, we have a huge driveway and when that Plow comes by we’re left with a ton of snow that just can’t be moved!  My husband has a bad hip and shovelling snow is a non-no for him. I’ve been dealing with Achilles tendonitis and so haven’t been much help either. Ryan is my son in law and they live next door.   After a long day of work he does their driveway then always comes over and shovels us out.   We never have to ask him for help - he just does it with a smile!...

  • Best neighbors!

    by nameringolo, 9 months ago

    Our neighbours have frequently plowed our driveway when we have been to busy with a baby! It's been wonderful to live in such a great community where neighbours are always willing to help :) 

  • Best Neighbour You Could Ask For!

    by Jbulgin89, 9 months ago

    My wife and I bought a house in Lefroy just over 4 years ago. Since then we have only shoveled our driveway maybe 5 times thanks to our incredible neighbour Walter! Both my wife and I are shift workers and work near the airport. After a 12 hour shift plus 3 hours of driving (in bad weather), we are always so relieved to come home and find our driveway cleared! Not having to spend that extra hour with the shovel having to get up at 4:30am again the next day is so incredible! We are not the only driveway that... Continue reading

  • Worlds Greatest

    by Chantal , 9 months ago

    My neighbour Paul has been an angel this year and every year. I live with my parents and am not always home to do the driveway for them. My mother has multiple sclerosis and my dad had a major shoulder surgery this summer and has taken a long time to recover. Paul is forever doing the driveway for them and helping them with their vehicles if something goes wrong. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of recognition then my neighbor Paul. There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do to help someone else.

  • Awesome husband

    by Himandher, 9 months ago

    I just want to put this out there that my wonderful husband has gone above and beyond last year by taking care of four driveways.  The neighbours are awesome that we have, but some work different hours and he did this a few times for the one as the neighbour works shifts.  Who wants to come home from afternoons or midnights to take care of the driveway?  So he has done this one driveway a few times so that this person doesn’t have to after a long shift and a long drive home.

  • Can You Believe this Guy?

    by Sharonw, 9 months ago

    Our Snow Angel surely is our neighbor, Pat Ryan on Church Drive in Lefroy. After each snowfall, he arrives with his Side by side and cleans our drive. This started when my husband had heart surgery five years ago and has not stopped. If I happen to go out to start shoveling, he swoops in behind me and waves me away. Pat also cleans the United Church parking lot on our street and this alone is worthy of an extra star in his crown.

    When I offer to pay Pat, his sweet reply is, we’ll think about it.

    Pat is... Continue reading

  • Awesome New Neighbours

    by MelissaHeslop, 9 months ago

    We live in Alcona, have a shared driveway and when we first moved in our neighbor who was home at the time on Maternity Leave would be out side shoveling both our driveways! After long commutes from Toronto back home to a Alcona is was always a lovely sight and so appreciated!


    We also have our other neighbor who has a snowblower and after heavier snow falls he is always outside clearing all his neighbors driveways! The other day we had run out of salt and knowing this when I left with our young daughter I noticed salt on our... Continue reading
