MOOSE JAW, SK – The City of Moose Jaw and Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce congratulate Tom Montgomery, our “Notoriously Good Neighbour” for the month of January.

The City of Moose Jaw and Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce created the program to recognize the Notoriously Friendly, Notoriously Generous and Notoriously Kind-Hearted Moose Javians making a Notoriously Positive difference in our community.

Diana Cody lives a few doors down from Montgomery, but she says that doesn’t stop him from helping her out on a regular basis. “He goes where he is needed, and helps out everyone,” Cody explained in her nomination submission. She said that as a single mom, occasionally she puts the call out on social media when she needs help, and Montgomery is the first person to come to her aid. “Last winter he came over on more occasions than I can count, and her snowplowed my driveway,” she said. Montgomery also braved the elements and helped to hang her Christmas lights as well.

Rob Clark (L) CEO, MJ & District Chamber of Commerce and Raghvir Gill, (R) City of Moose Jaw Bylaw Enforcement Officer, present Tom Montgomery with his Notoriously Good Neighbour award.

Cody said she isn’t the only blessed by his generosity. “(Tom) has spent countless hours doing work for girls fastball and anything else baseball(related). He volunteers for things that are falling short of help and will move mountains to make sure this community and its residents are taken care of.”

As an official “Notoriously Good Neighbour”, Montgomery has been awarded a gift card to Al Capone’s Pizza.

Moose Javians can nominate their Notoriously Good Neighbour with the Report An Issue feature on the City’s website, MooseJaw.ca, or on the free City of Moose Jaw app. And, to read the City’s “Notorious Nine – Nine Ways to Be a Notoriously Good Neighbour” – click here.
