Cochrane Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is asking Cochranites to share a story and nominate a neighbour who makes their neighbourhood great.

“It can be anything from nominating someone that lends a helping hand, initiates community gardens, maintains libraries or with snow removal,” says Brianne Sachdev, Community Development Worker-Neighbourhoods with FCSS.  “Really anyone making positive changes in their community.” 

The nominations will then be shared during Cochrane's Great Neighbour Week starting June 15. 

“They'll receive a card and some other fun activities and we will put their name in for a draw.”

Last year, FCSS received numerous nominations that really highlighted Cochrane as a great place to live.

“Larry is the most caring, hardworking neighbour I have ever known,” reads one of the many nominations. “He is the first one to pick up a shovel when it snows, he looks out for everyone in our little senior condo community. Larry will look after your unit while you are away, he says ‘call me first’ if you need something done to try to help us seniors save money. He is like a Guardian Angel! Larry goes above & beyond every day.”

Nominate your great neighbour HERE. All submissions are due by May 17, 2024.
