Congratulations Salmo! We received two certificates of recognition at the September 28th Communities in Bloom (CIB) Awards Ceremony in Abbotsford for Salmo Bloom Community Beautification in 2017. The first award was a certificate of recognition for community beautification with special mention regarding our video “Where All Roads Lead”.
The second award was for our Canada 150 activities. This year, the Village of Salmo joined the Communities in Bloom program as a novice member to coordinate beautification efforts, enhance green spaces, encourage civic pride and economic development. The program is being called “Salmo Bloom” and was formally kicked off with several exciting initiatives, many related to Canada 150 Celebrations.
Through the program we:
- Installed of Canada 150 highway banners.
- Placed attractive floral arrangements on municipal properties.
- Hosted a XeriScaping Workshop on June 8th, 2017 at the Village Office.
- Hosted a Novice Communities In Bloom Workshop.
