The City of Moose Jaw and Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce have announced that Patricia Oliverio and Doreen Meadows are the “Notoriously Good Neighbours” for the month of May.

The two were nominated by Oliverio’s daughter, Romina, after Patricia and Doreen came to the aid of their friends and neighbours when a house fire broke out in their neighbourhood. 

Romina explained that on May 1, a home began to produce smoke and flames on Brown Street, and that’s when Patricia and Doreen rushed to the house to alert the homeowners. After getting no response they moved to the neighbouring houses to make sure those families could get out safely. 

Patricia and Doreen made these efforts despite suffering from respiratory issues and recovering from a recent surgery.

As official “Notoriously Good Neighbours”, both have been awarded gift cards to Smitty’s Family Restaurant.

Moose Javians can nominate their Notoriously Good Neighbour with the Report An Issue feature on the City’s website or on the City of Moose Jaw app.
