A few weeks ago I witnessed a senior neighbour of mine struggling with trying to install a ramp for his disabled wife. Unfortunately, his efforts did not meet the requirements of municipal by-law regulations and the project would not pass. By chance, three young teenagers witnessed his struggles and approached him to see how they could help. Having had some experience working with carpentry, and with the guidance of one of their fathers, who also became involved and who donated all the supplies, they gave up their weekend to assist this man with his goal. Now this neighbour of mine has a brand new ramp and his wife has the freedom to leave the house to which she has been confined for several month. This is why I love North Grenville. These random acts of kindness, big or small, occur all over this area. Makes me so proud to call this my home.
