While most of us were taking advantage of the gorgeous week end to clean up yards from storm damage and leaves, members of the Business Bobcats BNI Group (Business Networking International) group joined with Shayne Newman and his team from Yardapes to help multiple families and non profits in need to clean up leaves and debris. A total of 31 brought equipment and managed to clear the property of 3 families found through the New Milford VNA. In addition the leaves were cleaned at the New Milford’s Children’s Center and Harrybrooke Park. Both non-profits were lacking funds for proper yard maintenance and the three homeowners had family illnesses. Volunteers were then treated to a BBQ by the Yardapes. Shayne Newman volunteers in multiple capacities and was the group who created the Joe Baker Garden at the Town Hall as well as the Landscaping at the Brookfield Library at no cost.

The entire group, of 36 local business owners has also adopted a Brookfield Family for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
On Small Business Saturday (and every day) remember the LOCAL business owners who do so much to support our communities.
