Another successful Maisons Fleuries Contest

Each year at this time I look forward to attending our Maisons Fleuries Awards Banquet. This year it was held at the Aquatic and Community Centre for the first time. With music by Edwin Brownwell and Director of Parks and Recreation David Taveroff as emcee, the nice crowd on hand enjoyed the evening.

As Mr. Taveroff stated, "in the summer, our community is ablaze with color as residents tend to their gardens in order to best please our judges. Our City is proud of its residents and is pleased to present these awards in recognition of their efforts."

The  co-chairmen of this years contest were Councillors  Sam Goldbloom and Allan J. Levine. Former Councillor  Harold Greenspon served as honourary chair. Mayor Anthony Housefather and other members of council were on hand.

 Entrants of single family, semi-detached and duplex residences were judged by political districts.  Elite awards were comprised of winners from the various categories who were selected for an award twice in the past three years.   The grand prize was awarded for one property amongst single family, semi-detached and duplex residences.
