Thanks for making a difference

On behalf of Communities in Bloom Castlegar I would like to send a big thank you out to the volunteers in this great little city who recently helped decorate the aggregate planters downtown. They look beautiful and the specialness that has been added changes them from being a grey and empty concrete vessel into a place that shows the joyful human spirit in action and what we are capable of, even at this chilly time of the year. And thanks to the Castlegar News for promoting and supporting our creative endeavors.

 

-Kari Burk,
