Pincher Creek's Chamber of Commerce and Communities in Bloom  committee jointly renewed the Businesses in Bloom competition this year, with competitors vying for a coveted Golden Shovel, awarded to the winners in two categories, Industrial and Commercial.  Judges based their scoring on overall impression, general tidiness, floral displays, and good weeding. Judges toured the store fronts of all the business in town.

In  the Best Commercial category Judy Unruh accepted first prize for Builders World with their lovely wide floral display on the corner of Charlotte Street and Hewetson Avenue.  Loretta Packham (Mrs. P's Coffee Corner) added her own decorative touches inside and out at the Ranchland Mall and earned second place.

Participants in the Best Industrial category showed how much you can do with a little, beautifying stark buildings and environs with little touches.  Joanne Cameron accepted  first place for  KJ Cameron Service Industries, located on Deer Avenue, which includes the recycling center.  This is a very challenging place to keep tidy and make pretty, but somehow they do it.  Second place was presented  to Riteline Electric Limited's Wendy Toews for her low profile rock garden on Waterton Avenue.

These businesses are to be congratulated for their part in making Pincher Creek a brighter community.

You didn't think this stuff got rid of itself, right?
