Back on July 18th we received a call from the New Glasgow Bloom Committee asking us to attend the full bloom gala awards meeting on July 24 as we were nominated for an award.
Now I must tell you what a great time and Meeting it was. We got to meet many of our friends as well as the Mayor and council members. The music by Fleur Mainville and Ray Stewart was just wonderful. And what a great voice Jim Stewart the town crier has. Mayor Barry MacMillan had a great welcome for every one. The art exhibit was just wonderful to see and look at. Kimberly Dickson the MC for the night was never lost for words, what a great job. And a very good power point presentation on CIB was given on a large screen showing a cross section of homes in New Glasgow with ours being one of them.
We are very proud and pleased that we received the Magic touch award for our property and home and that was a surprise to us. For we do not do it for the award but for the beauty of the town. Now I must say that we are very proud of our town and street for there are many properties on our street that are very neat and well kept. We say a big thank you to all the bloom committee members for a job well done. Thank you and may we always keep our town nice and neat and clean and beautiful.
