Trail Community in Bloom volunteer Connie Smith was quick to tend to the plants in the Jubilee Park’s white garden after preparations for the new Riverfront Centre forced some plants to be moved. Smith made sure “the babies” were carefully replanted and watered in their new locations. The move came as Fortis prepares to install some electrical components for the new centre.
