Today is the first day of winter. So it is a good time to remind Montlakers that our neighborhood Snow Brigade is ready and standing by. Last winter, our MCC Board Secretary, Kathy Laughman, recruited and organized a group of about 40 neighbors, forming the Snow Brigade. These hearty folks volunteered to assist snow bound neighbors who needed help with: (1) snow removal, (2) urgent errands, (3) and/or dog walking. The volunteers weren’t called on last year because we saw hardly one flake of snow.
This year about a dozen of last year’s volunteers told us they are still available. In case we finally get a real snow storm, we would like to recruit additional Brigade volunteers. If you enjoy being out in the snow and can perform any of the 3 services listed above, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neighbors who think they may need help from the Brigade this winter should keep this phone number and e-mail address handy:
(206) 402-3192; email@example.com.
OK, Mr. Weatherman, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
Julee Neuhart, MCC President
