2019 Good Neighbor Winner: Tom Ostanik

My family and I recently moved here from the Dallas Fort Worth Area. We moved here just in time for winter and our neighbors Tom and Lois Ostanik went out of their way to make us feel so welcomed. Specifically when we had the first heavy day of snow of the season; it was probably clear being from Texas that Matt and I had never shoveled snow from a driveway before. I was so shocked and thankful when I saw Tom clearing my driveway for me. I have never had any neighbors in Texas or anywhere else be a good neighbor the way that Tom has.

Congratulations Tom Ostanik
