As you guys know, the ACE Neighbour contest was extended and beefed up with some fabulous new prizes. Congratulations to Lisa Ostafichuk who was nominated by her neighbour Dana Bretelle.
"Sometimes I feel like we have won the lottery with great neighbours in this great neighbourhood! Our neighbour Lisa O. is a person that I really need to mention as she just goes above and beyond. Not only does Lisa help us and many other neighbours with their pets, gardens, lawns, snow shovelling and homes when they are away, she also volunteers in many other areas in the community. For many years has taught English to newcomers and I know she has visited each week for over a year with a new Syrian refugee family in Ritchie. Our kids absolutely adore Lisa as she always makes time for them. She has the kids over each week where they get a special play date with her. She plays board games with them, bakes huge cookies, has taught them piano and ukulele for free and even takes them for walks to play tennis against the wall in the schoolyard. You may have seen her doing this in the schoolyard! I cannot express how much she is appreciated by ours and surrounding families, or how thoughtful a person she is. Lisa has lived in the neighbourhood for her whole life and is truly an ambassador for the community and an incredible example of what being a good neighbour and person is."
After hearing all the great things Lisa does around the neighbourhood we thought she could use a night out on Accent Infills! Edmonton's infill and skinny home specialists will be giving Lisa $100 for her great neighbour skills.
As for Dana, Color de Vino is providing her with plenty of wine so she can raise a glass (or 20) to having a great friend and neighbour in Ritchie!
We've got lots of great prizes from local business and cash-ola from Accent Infills so remember, to nominate your pal next door. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why your neighbour is ACE!
