LEWISBURG (WVDN) – Lewisburg is once again set to be judged on its beauty and foliage.
The city of Lewisburg is participating in the 28th edition of Communities in Bloom in the International Challenge Small category, along with Dauphin, Manitoba, Canada; Ingria, Italy; Glaslough, Ireland; Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada; and Velika, Polana, Slovenia.
The communities will be rated from 1 to 5 Blooms, based on the scoring obtained. Also, they will aim to obtain Bronze, Silver or Gold levels in their 5-Bloom rating.
The Communities in Bloom judges, Susan Ellis from Pembroke, Ontario, Canada, and Alex Pearl from Centreville, Ohio will be evaluating Lewisburg on July 12-14. The city would like to remind all businesses and residents to tidy up their property before the judges arrive.
The national and international results will be announced in Victoria, British Columbia, October 20-23, during the National Symposium on Parks & Grounds and the National & International Awards celebrating “Year of the Garden”.
Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit volunteer and partnership-driven organization that uses a multi-tiered competitive evaluation process to foster community strength, involvement, and continuous improvement. This is accomplished by nurturing environmental sustainability, enhancements of green spaces, and heritage conservation in cultural and natural environments encompassing municipal, residential, commercial, and institutional spaces.
Their vision is to inspire all communities to enhance the quality of life and their environment through people and plants to create community pride. “Growing Great Places Together” is their slogan, and it captures the essence of the program.
All those involved in the Communities in Bloom program can be proud of their efforts, benefitting all of society by providing real and meaningful ways to mitigate climate change.
