Once again, the Communities in Bloom Committee are encouraging residents and local businesses to enter one of its community competitions. This year the committee has five categories residents can participate in:
1. Curb Appeal [2014 winners were Lee McNabb]
2. Backyard [2014 winners were Alf and Bea Wand]
3. Floral Displays [2014 winners were Joe and Joyce Metz]
4. Vegetable Gardens [2014 winners were Garry and Shirley Stevenson]
5. Business Flower Pot Competition [2014 winners were Gibson Energy]
These competitions are meant to be fun and help the committee in two ways. First community involvement is a judged category. Therefore, just by entering you can help the community score some extra points. Second, the community is being judged on tidiness and floral displays subsequently by having a nice yard you also help build more points for our score. Some have already entered, but we have many nice yards, and it is not too late to enter. If you would like to enter yourself or a deserving neighbor in a competition, call the Town Office (306)672-3361 before July 1st. Local judges will evaluate the entries no later than July 15th.
Other ways to help your Community
The Communities in Bloom Program is all about community pride and participation. You can help just by keeping your yard neat and tidy. If you like, you can also volunteer to help the CIB Committee on the odd-job squad and help them complete a project. For more information, call the Town Office (306)672-3361.
