QB stays bloomin’ good

Where do you go when you’ve been named the best there is?

When the Town of Qualicum Beach’s status with the Communities in Bloom program is concerned, you lay relatively low for a couple of years and then see if you can take the gold medal once again.

In a report to council on her recent visit to a Communities in Bloom convention in Quebec City, Councillor Mary Brouilette said the town is hoping to compete in the national competition again next summer.

“It’s amazing the sense of community and pride you feel when you go to something like this,” she said.

She said town staff will prepare a slide presentation for the new council and the public in the near future about the program.

Brouilette said the municipality is looking for volunteers.

This year, the Town of Qualicum Beach received the coveted Five Blooms award — the highest standing available to the town.
