The first major snowstorm of the winter was met by volunteers from the SNA snow removal-assistance project who helped elderly and handicapped neighbors clear their walks.

Tom Schmeling, who manages the program with fellow SNA board member Britt Page, said there were 10 shovelers to take care of five calls for assistance in the Summit neighborhood. He said that one request came from the College Hill section and had to be turned down.

The assistance service this year is a resumption of one tried a couple of years ago that faded out because of a lack of volunteers, so having enough people is crucial. If you can help, please email
