The winning tree

Communities in Bloom wins

District of Sooke and CIB get most votes for tree decorating

The District of Sooke Communities in Bloom committee got together and decorated a tree at SEAPARC for the annual Festival of Trees. The CIB tree got the most votes, with Sooke Montessori coming in a close second

 

Total amount raised was $1,655.00 which will be donated to the BC Children’s Hospital. It goes towards helping children in our community as well.

 

“As always it was great fun working with you for our community and shall work wonderfully towards our Communities in Bloom goal this year,” said chair Brenda Parkinson to her decorating committee.“Happy New Year to everyone.  It is a great beginning to the New Year.”

 

Pictured around the the tree, left to right, are Sande Cummings, Sandy Ball, Karen Stones, Ellen Lewers and Brenda Parkinson.
