Love is in the air in Maple Ridge!
Greetings Maple Ridge,
As we all prepare for Valentine's Day and spending time with the ones we love most, we also wanted take a moment to say a kind word to our neighbors who have been on the front lines during the covid-19 pandemic. Check out the "Shout-Out" section to see some of Maple Ridge's own who have worked in healthcare and first response and those who have worked to keep life as normal as possible such as our teachers. Your Maple Ridge community as well as the greater community appreciate all that you do!
The leaves are gone and the weather is bitter at times but our neighborhood is looking great! The new entrance signs, decorative fencing and lights have been installed at South Scales and really update that entrance. Other exciting changes will be discussed in the community meeting later this month. Check the "Announcements" section for more information on time and location of the community meeting.
For neighbors with kids, there are some changes in the school schedule for this month. You can learn more in the "Upcoming Events" section.
We hope you enjoy the February Newsletter!
