Members of Trail Association for Community Living partnered with Community in Bloom to help clean up and beautify the Trail Association for Community Living Activity Centre (TAAC), located within Groutage Ave.

Several bags of weeds were filled and flower pots were planted in anticipation of the Communities in Bloom (CiB) judges who will be arriving in Trail on July 22.

More from CiB:

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 & Anne-Marie Parent from Beaconsfield, Québec will be evaluating the City of Trail on July 22-23-24. The city would like to remind all businesses and residents to tidy up their property before the judges arrive.
