I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely and heartily thank each and every person who shoveled snow for all the elderly folks, ages 65 and over, all over the city of Portland in the winter of 2013-2014.

This was a particularly bad winter for storms of all sorts. And all the shovelers deserve a great deal of appreciation for the jobs well done.

The seniors really appreciate this service, and it makes their lives so much safer!

I would also like to thank the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office for their shoveling support. I couldn’t run this project without the whole department’s help.

To date, about 150 addresses are being shoveled – free. My sincere thanks, again, to all of you!
