Trail to host Communities in Bloom conference in fall 2014

Trail will be the host city for the 2014 Provincial CiB Awards Conference.

The City of Trail and Trail Community in Bloom (CiB) are pleased to announce Trail will be the host city for the 2014 Provincial CiB Awards Conference.

The two-day conference, to be held in the fall, will draw in delegates from around the province to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of participating blooming communities.

“Hosting the awards conference will allow other CiB communities to celebrate their successes, while also allowing us to showcase the wonderful aspects of our City,” said Dan Rodlie chair of the Trail CiB Committee in a press release from the city.

“Having been involved with CiB since 2002, Trail CiB takes a lot of pride in the promotion and beautification of our city. Since then, Trail has won the national competition twice and consistently maintained its Five-Bloom status.

“We look forward to sharing this experience with other communities.”

Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs said hosting the event is a great opportunity for the city.

“CiB has been an integral part of our city’s image for quite some time.  We look forward to showing Trail to the visitors while also celebrating their successes.”

The conference will highlight the award ceremonies to recognize Five-Bloom, Four-Bloom, Novice and Non-Evaluated communities.

Community speakers, round-table discussions and activities and tours will also be on the schedule of events.

Trail is competing in the international  Community in Bloom for towns with a population under 10,000 and the winner will be announced in Ottawa at the end of October.
