Melanie Wight, the MLA for Burrows dropped us a note recently to say “thank you for the excellent work this summer”…for me and my constituents…”Do you do winter work”.
And of course we responded that we certainly do and are looking to expand our snow shoveling customers in 2012-13 to help us create more work for the every growing demand. We also for her assistance in helping getting the word out to her constituents about SSCOPE and of course she responded positively. We are very grateful to Melanie; she is a strong supporter of our organization and our mission and purpose and our activities such as our music nights and festivals.
