Côte Saint-Luc City Council recently presided over another impressive Maisons Fleuries Awards Ceremony, held at the Aquatic and Community Centre. This honours residents who beautify their gardens.
It is a pleasure to walk, bike or drive through the streets of Côte Saint-Luc and see the beautiful gardens that adorn our city during the summer months. The efforts made by many residents to maintain their lawns, tend to their gardens and landscape their flower beds in a creative and unique fashion beautifies our community and is tremendously appreciated.
Councillors Mitchell Brownstein and Allan J. Levine co-chaired this year`s competition and served as emcees for the ceremony. A big thanks to our staff at Parks and Recreation for their hard work, notably Laura Trihas and Cornelia Ziga. Director of Public Affairs and Communications Darryl Levine put together a great video slide show and Rami Negev did his usual top-notch job taking photos. Judges assessed front gardens according to the cleanliness of the property, the appearance of plants and flowers and general landscaping.
We added a nice treat for our guests this year. A silent magic show from Max and Maxine, Max being my old friend Jonathan Levey whom I had not seen perform in many years. His Silent-Comedy Magic show was a sure-fire hit. He brought people on stage from the audience, including Councillor Dida Berku who kept sipping from a cup of milk only to see Max empty the contents from her nose and ears. Check out his website here to book him for your occasion.
