Provincial Communities In Bloom Award For Coaldale
COALDALE: The Town placed first in its category in this year's provincial Communities in
Coaldale received five Blooms out of five in the population category of 6,001
to 15,000, narrowly beating out Drayton Valley.
Brenda Isaak Takao and Doreen Lloyd traveled to Forestburg on the weekend to
attend the Communities in Bloom Provincial Awards banquet.
According to Isaak Takao, "The award is for our community - for everyone to
share. She notes, "We had amazing support from the Mayor and Councillors but, we
also have to acknowledge the parks department and staff, as they put in many
hours". It should also be noted that residents put in an effort to take care of
their yards and pick up litter in their neighborhoods.
Coaldale's support of a new community garden also received an honorable mention.
