The City of Chestermere is encouraging residents to again celebrate the treasure of having a good neighbour during ‘Amazing Neighbour Week’ taking place October 11-18.
“Council wanted to find a new way to acknowledge and celebrate amazing neighbours around our community back in 2019,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “We look forward to celebrating it again as COVID-19 continues to change things. One thing it has not changed is the importance of having, and being, a good neighbour. It has made it even more important as we continue to find new ways to care for those in our community – regardless of what side of the fence you’re on.”
Amazing Neighbour Week starts during the Thanksgiving long weekend. We encourage all residents to share their stories of amazing neighbours. Use the hashtag #amazingneighbourweek to showcase your remarkable street-mates you’re thankful for on social media.
