The Merrickville-Wolford Communities in Bloom Committee have sent a letter of thanks to Mayor Nash and Council acknowledging their contribution, along with that of staff, in this year’s competition. The Committee notes that they had worked very hard to make the Village beautiful, and continues: “But we couldn’t have done it without the help of Council, and more specifically the Village staff whom [sic] worked very hard to make this Village shine!”
The letter reports that the judges for Communities in Bloom visited the Village on July 5, and attended a Meet and Greet at the Goose & Gridiron. The next day, they toured the Village of Merrickville-Wolford and took “a walking tour of the downtown core, a visit to our Historical buildings, a visit to our trails, a tour around Wolford, a stop at Diana Beresford-Kroeger’s amazing property, lunch at Middleshire B&B, and a stop at Maitland Farms”. Quite an itinerary.
The letter of thanks ends: “This year’s Communities in Bloom couldn’t have been such a success without the support of Merrickville-Wolford Council & Staff. We look forward to coming back from the Symposium as Award Winners”.
The Ontario Symposium and Awards ceremonies will be held at the Forest Golf & Country Inn in the Municipality of Lambton Shores on September 8 and 9. All the best wishes to the Merrickville-Wolford Committee.
