City recognizes 621 Snow Angels in first year
April 1, 2014 -
The City heard about 621 Snow Angels during the first season of its new program. Snow Angels are people who voluntarily clear snow and ice from their neighbours' sidewalks and driveways. The Snow Angel program allowed these neighbours to nominate their Snow Angels for recognition and thanks.
"This has been an extraordinarily difficult winter. So it's been a great joy to hear about these angels – and often teams of angels – who have stepped up to be there to support their neighbours," says Damon Wells, Director of Public Works, who says the program exceeded all expectations in its inaugural year. Nominations for the Snow Angel program are now closed.
Nominators received a thank-you letter and a toque to present to their angels. The City had to order more toques for the program in January. Snow Angels also had their names entered in a monthly draw.
