The holiday season is once again upon us!  The one thing I really love about Christmas, is that warm and fuzzy feeling you get every time a complete stranger wishes you a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays.  It’s like we are all in this together!

Ottawa Student Windows – The Little Window Cleaners Who Could …

Now, to me these young men look anything but little … but Matt Graves, from Ottawa Student Windows, came up with this title to describe their honorable and ambitious en-devour.  These community conscious students are all about giving back!  In 2016 they raised funds for the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa through their hard work – their motto – “when many people get together, small actions can add up to make big differences in the community”. Matt wrote this blog post and Ottawa Boomers is pleased to share.  Spring is coming and your windows will need washing.  By...
