The Municipality of Bluewater has entered the Ontario Communities in Bloom (CIB) evaluated program and the Bluewater Blooms Committee has been planning for a summer visit by professional CIB judges. Each year, members invite community volunteers and municipal staff and Council to help show the judges how much we love our community. We sincerely thank everyone involved!
The Municipality launches the evaluation season in June with a proclamation from the Mayor and Council of Communities in Bloom Week. This is a week to raise awareness of the Communities in Bloom Program and the efforts of the Municipality of Bluewater. The planning committee produces a Community Profile Book to communicate exciting new municipal and community initiatives. This publication is updated each year. In 2016, the book was reformatted for viewing on smart devices. It contains web links to municipal and outside sources. Thanks to Heather Redick of Zurich for her hard work on this project! What a great resource!
The planning committee continues to bring new ways for all residents to get involved. See the “Garden Gallery” “Village Banner Program” “Bluewater Signature Flower” “Tree Sale” “Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup” and a “Hay Bale Sculpture Contest”. Share with your Facebook friends to spread the word and build pride in Bluewater!
A heartfelt “thank you” to all Committee members, all volunteers, Council and all Municipal staff who contribute each year to our winning program.
