Aging in Place Shovel Brigade to the rescue


Jeff Howes, part of a team from Sedgwood Commons, shovels off a carport roof for a Cumberland resident during the recent snow deluge to assist Aging in Place Cumberland’s efforts to keep older residents safe.

Students in Greely High School’s Community Service Club and Greely Middle School’s Pathways program pitched in as well, shoveling and clearing ice for Cumberland and North Yarmouth residents. Volunteers worked to clear walkways, shoveled steps, refilled sand buckets, created off-road parking spots, and even pruned limbs over a walkway.

Thank you all for doing this important work and helping our older residents stay safe!
One resident wrote to express her deep appreciation. "Thank you so much for sending these guys over to help me out," she said. "They did such a wonderful job!"
