Campbell Riverites invited to jump on the ‘bloom’ train

The Communities in Bloom Committee wants to share its success with the public, and let everyone know what this ‘bloom’ is all about

The Communities in Bloom Committee wants to share its success with the public, and let everyone know what this ‘bloom’ is all about.

The committee will host an everyone-welcome evening next Wednesday starting at 7 p.m. in the Community Centre.

Come celebrate, learn what Communities in Bloom is, and why it’s important to Campbell River.

And meet the committee members who’ve worked so hard to bring Campbell River to the international stage.

The City of Campbell River was judged nationally and came out the winner for its community size in the Communities in Bloom competition this year.

Campbell River also received numerous other awards and mentions in the competition.

The Communities in Bloom Committee is now looking for people who love Campbell River and are excited about the future to get involved in Communities in Bloom.

“Campbell River’s Communities in Bloom brings together many different community partners all working towards the same goal of ensuring that our city is sustainable, vibrant and beautiful,” said Communities in Bloom Committee chair Nigel Lambeth.

“We work together to preserve our past and build the future, and we welcome new people who are excited about the future and can help us continue to promote Campbell River as the best place to live work and play.”
