Those involved in the Barriere Communities in Bloom (CIB) presentation to the judges on July 19 will be pleased to know that the tour which started at the Wildfire Dragon Monument site, travelled throughout the community, and ended up at the fall fair grounds has received a positive review in the  Communities In Bloom August Newsletter.

A photograph of the carvings at the monument site is presented in the newsletter with the following caption; “Judges Yvette & Don commented on the visit to Barriere’s Wildfire Dragon Monument and Spirit Square south of town. The site is impressive – paying tribute to the determination, compassion and generosity shown by those who came to fight the fire and assist in rebuilding the community; and to the people who reside here and built the Barriere of today. The landscaping, with its many examples of local flora, wasn’t bad either!”

Results of the judging will be made public at the CIB convention in Kelowna on Sept. 22.  If you would like to see the newsletter go to: http://www.bccommunitiesinbloom.ca/BCCiB_Newsletter_August_2012.pdf
