High school students give back to friendly senior

Tinney DavidsonIn 2007, Tinney Davidson and her husband started waving to children every morning as they walked by their home on the way to school. While some students thought it was a bit strange at first, they eventually started waving back. Tinney’s husband died a few years ago, but she kept up the ritual. Today, the kids look forward to the happy “Good morning!” wave from Tinney every day and look for her as they walk by. Knowing that her husband had passed away, the students decided to do something special for her this Valentine’s Day. This is a great story!

Good News Monday: Enbridge Gas New Brunswick’s “Fix it in 5” initiative helps local communities

Welcome to Good News Monday, a new weekly feature that will highlight a good news story each week. Do you know an individual or company who deserves to be featured? Contact me to give me the details!

This week’s “thumbs up” goes to Enbridge Gas New Brunswick (EGNB). Company employees recently took on a initiative called Fix it in 5 which saw up to 10 EGNB employees and other volunteers take on projects in each of the nine communities served by the company in the province.

The nine projects were:

  • Oromocto – A breath of fresh air: Lintuhtine Music Academy of Oromocto
  • Dieppe – Interior and exterior yards: École Mathieu-Martin
  • St. Stephen – Town of St. Stephen Boys and Girls Club
  • Sackville – Restore Baseball in Sackville (RBIs): Sackville Minor Baseball Association
  • St. George – Dynamite Dragons in need of a dynamite paint job: St. George Elementary
  • Moncton – Help Us Help Them: Greater Moncton SPCA
  • Saint John – Critters in Crisis Campaign – Animal Rescue League
  • Riverview – God Also Likes Pretty: Whitepine Baptist Church
  • Fredericton – Fredericton SPCA Operation Pet Projects: Fredericton SPCA

Nominations were finalized in May and communities voted on which projects they wanted EGNB to adopt. Nine projects were undertaken in nine communities over five days with more than 15,000 votes cast in the selection process! For details and photos of each project, click here.

Congratulations to Enbridge Gas New Brunswick and their dedicated employees for this much-needed boost to nine deserving community groups!
