Join us at A Taste of Oakville

The holidays are over and winter has finally kicked in.  For some, spending the days and nights indoors sounds so much more appealing than venturing out into the cold.   However, for two weeks starting January 26th, why not try something new – go out on the town and experience the incredible restaurants in Oakville!  Enjoy an evening with friends or loved ones in the warmth while appreciating some great cuisine.

The Rocca Sisters & Associates are proud to be the presenting sponsor for the 2016 A Taste of Oakville Event, which will run from Jan 26th – Feb 11th.  Come and celebrate the culinary scene in Oakville!

Tickle your taste buds and discover the many great restaurants that Downtown Oakville and Bronte Village have to offer.  This delicious culinary event will feature 26 sensational restaurants offering signature prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus. Meals will usually include an appetizer, main course and dessert.

We know funds can be a little tight following the holidays, so with substantially lowered prices, these prix-fixed menus are the perfect opportunity to enjoy a night out and try a restaurant you’ve never been to before.  Let your taste buds travel the world without leaving Oakville!

For a full list of participating restaurants, please visit www.atasteofoakville.com/restaurants/.

The Rocca Sisters & Associates hope you enjoy this event! We invite you to share your pictures with us on social media! Follow us on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram to stay connected. For information on our upcoming community events, please visit our website at RoccaSisters.ca.

Know Your City’s Snow Removal Services This Winter

Winter is finally upon us! Although early winter has been much milder than previous years thanks to El Niño, it has been predicted that the second half of winter will be more of what we are used to – snow, freezing rain, and below zero temperatures.  Therefore, before we get hit with our first major winter storm of 2016, it would be a good idea to get familiarized with your town’s snow removal service.  Snow and freezing rain can make commuting and getting around town a nightmare!  Know when to expect your roads and sidewalks to be cleared – and be prepared for long commutes and dangerous winter road conditions.

There are also a few things that residents can do to assist the city with efficient snow clearing.

  • Remove snow from fire hydrants and drainage catch basins near your property.
  • Clear snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to your property and from roofs that overhang onto the sidewalk.
  • Pile snow on the right side of your driveway (when facing the road) when shoveling. This helps minimize the ridge of snow created by the snowplow at the end of your driveway.
  • Remove plowed snow at the end of your driveway.
  • Park vehicles on your driveway and off the street when possible. This will allow plows to completely clear the roads.
  • Keep a safe distance from plows on the roads and do not attempt to pass.
  • Do not pile snow on roads or sidewalks. This is a violation of the Highway Traffic Act and city bylaws.
  • Keep decorative items near sidewalks and curbs flat on the ground and at least 30 cm away from the edge in order to reduce the chance of damage to property or snow removal equipment and injury to operators.

For more information on snow removal services, please visit the following links or contact us at the Rocca Sisters office directly at 905-335-4102 or by email at info@roccasisters.ca.
