THUMBS UP – resident would like to give thumbs up for the new pedestrian cross walk at Simcoe and Paxton Street as it has made life much easier to cross the busy street and feels it has slowed traffic down somewhat as well.

THUMBS UP – to our Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 419 as they presented Oak Ridges Hospice with a donation of $17,000 recently to assist with the purchase of furniture to provide comfort to our community members and veterans. 

THUMBS DOWN – to all those that continue to leave their garbage behind after enjoying a day in our beautiful Palmer Park. If you don’t do it at home then don’t do it here!  I have to assume your home is also littered.  Shame on you!

THUMBS UP – to the nice young man who saw I was struggling bringing my garbage bins up my driveway.  They say the youth of today are lazy, well I just have to say a big thumbs up to this young mans parents who have taught him compassion and manners.  

THUMBS UP – thank you to our farmers market in Port Perry for all the great options for a Saturday morning stroll. I plan for a few items and always leave with a bounty. What a great town.

THUMBS UP – our family and friends had a fabulous time at the Craft Beer & Cider Festival in Palmer Park in August. I just wanted to acknowledge the Scugog Chamber of Commerce who hosted this amazing event. I can’t imagine the time and effort it took to organize it all.

THUMBS DOWN – to people who mow their lawns on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 6:30 a.m.  Please think of the people sleeping with their windows open. We all like freshly mowed lawns but on my days off I would rather wake up to my husband brewing coffee.
