5 Blooms and a special mention for Pincher Creek

Communities in |Bloom press release

The Town of Pincher Creek received a 5 Bloom rating and a special mention for Pincher People Power during the Communities in Bloom 2013 National Symposium and Awards Ceremonies at Canada's Capital Region, Ottawa-Gatineau on October 25th and 26th.

The community participated in the Circle of Excellence Evaluated category.

Following their evaluation, volunteer judges Lorna McIlroy and Ted Zarudny wrote: “Pincher Creek is a dynamic family oriented community, serving as the heart of Southwest Alberta.  It is beautifully framed with the majestic Rocky Mountains to the west, Waterton Lakes to the south, Porcupine Hills to the north and the Piikani Nation Reserve to the east.  The town itself is picturesque with flower baskets and beds, historic murals and silhouettes.  However the real beauty of this community is in the power of the people of the town and the surrounding area who volunteer so freely to make this community a great place to live and to visit.  From the Pincher Planters to the Oldman Rose Society, Arts Council, Historical Society, service clubs, sports clubs and churches; Pincher Creek runs on People Power”!

Within the actual context of climate changes and environmental concerns, communities involved in the program can be proud of their efforts, which provide real and meaningful environmental solutions and benefit all of society.
