“Dear PoPville,

My friend Courtney who is 81 years old, was about to get a cab on March 10 in the corner of Columbia rd and Ontario rd. A car that was parked went en reverse and hit her, she is ok. She wants to thank the good people that helped her to get up, get her cane and assisted her to go back home. She appreciates the kind gesture, hopefully the good neighbors will know she is doing good thanks to their help.”
