Sally Van Wyck is being honoured in our Volunteer Spotlight for her amazing work in keeping our property attractive. She has lived in Bldg 85 for several years now having started out in 95. Sally is known to many in our community for her kind and helpful personality.
Sally was initially nominated by Steve in building 85 for all the times she has walked the grounds with a pooper scooper, large bags and picked up after irresponsible pet owners. Sitting outside in the park space in front of 85, she and her friends often pick up trash and cigarette butts left behinds by others. This contributes to making the green space an inviting space to enjoy.
Steve wrote “I have never seen a tenant do as much as this woman has done to help make these buildings a better place to live. Out of the goodness of her heart she saves all dog owners from looking bad.”
The winter months were particularly bad and the spring revealed large areas of uncollected dog waste. Sally took it upon herself to do something about it. We all know that not all dog owners are irresponsible, lazy or inconsiderate but it takes an amazing person like Sally to show how to be a good neighbor. In this case a good neighbor picks up after their dog.
We all appreciate what Sally does. We can only hope that someday Sally, and her bulldog Bruno, will be out of a job.
