Headlines & Happenings

Neighbourhood Blading for Lendrum will start on Tuesday, December 18. If possible please move your vehicles off the streets so that they can be cleared of snow.

There have been recent sightings of coyotes in the neighbourhood. We need to ensure that coyotes keep their fear of humans. If you encounter a coyote, make it feel unwelcome: Make noise - clap, shout in a deep voice, blow a whistle. Throw things at it. Make yourself look bigger. Do not run!
More things on what to do if you encounter a coyote are listed at Coyote Encounters
