B.C. Communities in Bloom is pleased to announce the involvement of 34 communities from all corners of the province in this year’s 2011 evaluation program including three on Vancouver Island: Port McNeill, Qualicum Beach and Sooke.
Seven pairs of judges are scheduled to tour the province from July 17 to 23, 2011.
The Communities in Bloom program emphasizes the unity in community. It is a catalyst for municipal staff, business leaders, service clubs and individuals to inventory assets and create awareness for projects that inspire the whole community to achieve its full potential.
Citizens become motivated by visual results that improve their community.
Local CiB committees start with simple objectives and plan future projects to capitalize on the best use of available volunteer and funding resources. The evaluation day creates a focus for these efforts.
All provincial participants will be awarded their Bloom Rating Certificate and receive their evaluation report at the 8th Annual B.C. Communities in Bloom Awards and Conference event, hosted by Sooke this year on Sept. 23 to 25.
