Join In ~ Shovel Out


At the 2-11-2020 Selectboard meeting, several residents expressed concern that some of our neighbors might need assistance with snow removal when there is a lot of accumulation.

More specifically, the elderly or ill may have difficulty getting rid of snow from their walkways and driveways, possibly resulting in a life-threatening situation if they cannot be reached by rescue in the event of an emergency. In addition, not everyone in this situation can afford snow removal services.

With this in mind, we are creating a list of Town and Village citizens who might need extra help with snow removal. This list will be made available to an awesome corps of volunteers with plows, blowers, and shovels who will generously provide their services fee-of-charge.

Kudos to Mark Martin and Denis Irick, who were in attendance and made this offer public, and thank-you for being proactive and supportive of our community. We welcome other volunteers to follow suit, and build on this positive momentum. (And for those of you who already do so, thanks!)

So, if you are an elderly or incapacitated resident of Alburgh, or you know someone in this situation, please call the Town office at 802-796-3468 and ask to be added to the list of folks that need snow removed from their driveway to make access easier and safe. If you are a friend or family member of someone that needs this service, please let us know, as sometimes "pride commeth before the fall", and a fall is that last thing an elderly or ill person needs to endure.

This service is not intended to be a handout or charity. It is neighbor helping neighbor in times of need. Alburgh can be more than a Town, we can be a community-- a place where we respect and help one another. Just as four walls makes a house but the love within those four walls is what makes it a home, a town is made up of a lot of homes, and if everyone in them extends even a little love to others, our community thrives.

This effort is made possible by caring, giving members of the community we call home and honors those from the past that understood what community meant. This program has not been given a name, and we welcome suggestions.

Thanks for your consideration, and be safe.
