How Neighbourliness Fosters Strong, Connected Communities: Part Three

2021 Doug Debrisay Good Neighbour Award Winner: Lana Mauchan

Every year, tenants nominate a neighbour that goes out of their way to help others and make the building a friendlier place. The winner for 2021 is Lana Mauchan. She is playfully known around her building as the “original friendship instigator”.

If ever water or heat services are interrupted, Lana reaches out to neighbours to check in. Although her selfless actions may seem small, they bring joy to many. Whether it be bringing a neighbours’ package to their door or brushing the snow off other cars, Lana is available when neighbours need help or just want to chat!

“She wants to help and encourages us with her own actions.”

It’s nice to know that there’s someone who will always let you know if the snow removal truck is on route or will share the ripe avocado they won’t have time to eat! Those who nominated her say her cheerful disposition and readiness to help those around her have been appreciated, especially during the pandemic. Thank you Lana and to all the good neighbours in our community.
