Orchids and Onions 


Orchids to the people who worked so hard shoveling, blowing and ploughing snow during recent winter storms. We don’t know most of your names, but we know you’re out there and your help means a lot to your neighbors!  

Snowy Orchids to Cliff, a wonderful man who called BAPA at the beginning of the winter to say he was available to remove snow.  We were so glad to hear from him – there are very few independent snow removal services around anymore, and BAPA gets tons of calls for it. Even better were the calls we got from neighbors to thank us for Cliff’s name and tell us what a great job he did, even working well past dark to make sure his clients were taken care of. Thank you, Cliff!  

Snowy Orchids to Joel Barr and his sons Dexter and Forrest, who stayed ahead of snow removal for neighbors who were away during the storms.  

Can you recommend at snow removal service BAPA should add to the referral list? Call 773-233-3100 or email bapa@bapa.org
