Sometimes your faith in humanity is renewed. Recently four young residents of Kiwanis Homes have started to do their own clean-up of their complexes.
Thanks so much to Morgan, Nicole, Logan and Liam. You guys are awesome.
We really appreciate the efforts of our residents who go beyond the normal expectations. Sometimes we can learn from our youngest residents.
Here is what they said about their efforts.
Why did you clean up your neighborhood?
- The survey gets dirty because people litter and i wanted to clean it up, my mom gave us gloves to use to pick up the garbage
- We play in our playground and i want to keep it clean
- Our earth needs to be healthy so we can be healthy
- I helped a big group of people do it so i wanted to do it more when they are not here to keep it clean
What do you like about where you live?
- I have a great park to play at in my survey and another one close to my house.
- I like the people here, I have a lot of friends.
- I like everything here, the park, my house, my friends.
- I like visiting Tina at the community house, she always lets me know what’s going on.
Summer is Finally here! And after the cool, wet spring temperatures we all experienced, warmer sunshine days are something to celebrate!
Now that school is out, extra caution when travelling through the surveys or driving near park areas is required. Children at play rarely think about safety and have been known to dart out onto a road way for a ball or run across a road to meet a friend. Parents, please help prevent children from darting out into the road by ensuring that your children are always supervised. Every parent knows if you look away for a split second that children could be in danger. Drivers, for the care of everyone, please slow down; a little extra caution in the neighbourhoods makes for a much safer summer.More ->
People have enjoyed lingering outside and enjoying the warming weather since the beginning of time. An outside porch or yard is the perfect gathering place to visit with neighbours, pass the time comfortably and watch the world go by. Just as you enjoy your freedoms and rights so do your neighbours. Everyone is entitled to enjoy their properties inside and out, without feeling infringed upon by loud noises (blaring music, barking dogs), smelly garbage, unclean backyards and screaming or fighting neighbours. With a little consideration from each person for the people who live nearby, a sense of community can be created.More ->
