Snow Plowers and Snow Shovelers wanted

I am working on a new updated list for referrals when people call looking for snow plowing and shoveling helps. Although today with the City Parking lot looking like a lake after having 2 plus inches of rain, it is hard to think snow.

I often get people calling asking for names of people who do plowing and shoveling and would like to update my list for this year.

If you would like to be on my list, please let me know your name, contact info and which parts of the County you are willing to work in.

You can email me at seniors@boreal.org, or call me at 218-387-2660. Hopefully we can help drum up some business for you.
Thank you.
