Cochrane Great Neighbour Week: Jun 17-24, 2023

Cochrane's Great Neighbour Week is your perfect opportunity to say Howdy!, Welcome!, and Thanks for being a great neighbour! Celebrate your neighbourhood's community spirit with a BBQ, front lawn party, picnic or an event at your local park or playground. Stay tuned for event details! 

Nominate your neighbour!

Cochrane is full of caring residents and neighbours. Tell us about someone that makes your community a better place to live! The nominee could be anyone who lends a helping hand, started a community garden, takes care of a little library, shovels snow or has made other positive changes in your neighbourhood. We all have extraordinarily busy lives and it’s important to recognize those who inspire us, lead by example, and create connection. Acts of kindness, volunteerism and neighbourhood pride make positive impacts on our community. All submissions due by June 14.
