Well, our 2015 Community Beautification Program has wrapped up for this year. We had over 20 applications from the various communities from around the Southwest. We approved a total of 16 applications with a total dollar figure of $16,050.00.
The winners were notified and the projects began to be completed throughout the summer. We were not able to attend many of the work bees this year, which made us sad, but we have had quite a busy year to date. We have made every effort to visit each community and take pictures which we will be posting on our website.
The winners are: Town of Cabri - Garden Group; RM of Bone Creek; Village of Frontier; Village of Consul; Cantuar Community Club Co-Op; Great Sandhills Museum; Village of Cadillac; Village of Cadillac (not a mistake, did two projects there); Tompkins ED Group; Resort Village of Beaver Flats; RM of Fox Valley; Communities In Bloom Shaunavon; Wayne Christopher; Village of Sceptre; and Herbert Heritage Association. Also, Village of Bracken.
Congradulations to all the winners and we are looking forward to meeting with you and discussing your projects.
Please look for the applications to the 2016 Community Beautification Program in April 2016. Communities are free to apply more than once, and in some cases are allowed to win more than once as well. So apply often and many times, we know there are alot of projects needing to be completed in your towns, villages and communities.
