Good job Airdrie

After receiving the early Christmas gift of almost 20 centimentres of snow from Mother Nature in two days, we are glad to see residents helping each other out. (See story on pages 1 and 2).
Although we had one letter from a resident who found themselves without snow angels after the recent storm (see page 9), we have heard many other stories in conversation, social media and via email of neighbours helping each other by pushing out or towing stuck cars, shoveling or snow blowing sidewalks and driveways, and giving each other rides to their destination when that was the only solution.
When a storm hits, it is easy to become frustrated but that gets you nowhere. Team work and a little elbow grease can go a long way to getting the community moving again.
It is up to us as able-bodied residents to help those who cannot clear their sidewalks and driveways and most people in Airdrie understand that and have no problem picking up a shovel to help.
No matter how big our fast-growing community gets we are proud to say our residents value and take actions to follow the small-town motto of neighbours helping neighbours.
