LETTER: Thanks for extending Sinclair Road

This is a big thank-you for the extension of Sinclair Road that was completed on Oct. 31.

Dear Editor:

I am a resident at Parkdale Manor on Sinclair Ave. This is a big thank-you for the extension of Sinclair Road that was completed on Oct. 31.

Thank you to the council for setting it up , for their foresight and finances.

Thank you for the staff in the municipal building, for being so co-operative when occasionally I would drop by just to enquire if it was really going to happen, and when they were able to tell me it would be completed by Oct. 31.

Thank you for the huge equipment that miraculously appeared, for the workers that worked so diligently. Especially the young man who was patiently sprinkling grass seed on the side of the road the very last day, to assure the clean look in the spring.

It is an awesome gift for the people living in the manor. Sinclair was a dead end here and no place to enjoy a walk and to not be able to share the baseball, soccer and different action in Dale Meadow park was frustrating to say the least.

It is awesome to see some venturing out on walkers or scooters or bikes, cautiously testing the road, for that is what we have now, a blacktop road, a beauty to behold.

Like Dorothy when she discovered the yellow brick road and clicked the heels of her red shoes, when the first snow falls on our road maybe I will put on the red boots, and try to click my heels and feel the magic she felt, because this gift to us is magic, a dream come true.

A big thank-you from the residents on Parkdale Manor on Sinclair Road.

Edith Chisholm and Ed Mile
