[Summit] SNA Snow Shoveling - looking for more volunteers

Hello,

The SNA Snow Brigade is looking for additional volunteers to shovel for
elderly and disabled neighbors who have difficulty clearing their walks and
driveways and who cannot easily pay for a service.

SPECIFICALLY, we need two volunteers who live within walking distance of
Fosdyke and Elmgrove, and two volunteers who live within walking distance
of Hope and 4th. If you are able to volunteer, please email us at
SNAsnow at gmail.com. Shovelers work in teams, trading off two-week shifts so
that nobody has to commit for the entire winter. It's fun - really! You'll
get to meet your neighbors, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise.

Thank you!

Britt Page and Tom Schmeling
