If your weekend plans could include a little weeding, pruning or tidying up around the yard, it would be appreciated.
Hope Communities in Bloom will be welcoming the judges next Thursday, July 21.
The group of volunteers has been hard at work to get the town ready for the visit, and they are asking that in the coming days, everyone take a good look around and spruce up their own corners of Hope.
The last time Communities in Bloom (CiB) judges came to Hope was in 2019, says Victor Smith.
“We are proud to be back with a full volunteer group and being able to be working on project with a team,” Smith said.
This year, the judges are Kerry Bysouth and Michael Evison, who are judging Hope for the first time ever.
“We are grateful for a different view of the district and new ideas they will have on improving the district. CiB judges always appreciate the volunteers and will meet with them on the tour to listen how they are a part of the district volunteer groups and the pride we feel,” he said. “
“CIB also amplifies the other volunteer groups that bring so much to the table to improve the district.”
This year’s tour will include visits to the Hope Golf Course, the community garden, two backyard Gardens, 6th Avenue improvements and many more.
“We are hoping people can do something in their area to make the town look better,” Smith said. “It maybe something as simple as mowing the yard or weed-eating or a general cleanup.”
