Kelowna salutes snow buster

Before trading winter shovels for sun hats and flip flops, the City of Kelowna named the 2010-2011 Snow Buster winner, Lloyd Manchester.

As part of this recognition, Manchester is the recipient of a $500 travel voucher.

For many years, Manchester has been helping his elderly neighbours by clearing snow from their driveways and cars after each snow fall.

His neighbours, along with the city, would like to extend their appreciation for his continued efforts.

Manchester was not Kelowna’s only Snow Buster this year.

Individuals and families throughout the city helped neighbours by clearing snow from driveways, cars and sidewalks without being asked or expecting thanks.

With most residents living within steps of a senior or a neighbour with a disability, clearing snow during the winter months helps to reduce the risk of injury and increases their mobility.
