Look for information over the summer highlighting the history and achievements of this great organization. Welcome to our new volunteers!


Communities in Bloom Symposium in Strathcona County

Thank you to all who volunteered for the Communities in Bloom Symposium held at the Community Centre in September last September. Strathcona County did a fantastic job of showcasing the many experts and local points of interest in our community. A huge thank you to County staff who worked hard to put on a first-class Symposium.  

A legacy project from the symposium includes public art and an edible fruit garden. You can visit it at Broadmoor Lake Park. More information here.
