You may have noticed our beautiful flower baskets throughout the Village and our gardens in the Welcome signs, at the Trail, at the Lakeshore, at the Cenotaph, in Davis Park and along the tracks behind the Post Office. These have all been donated or sponsored by members of our community. This year we chose yellow flowers because it is the colour of Hope and given life with the pandemic, we thought we would spread some hope through our gardens and baskets. Since you may not stop and read the placards as you go by, we are posting them on the Photo Gallieries page with their baskets for you
