Communities in Bloom National Awards Ceremonies - Sept. 22 & 23, 2006
Brandon, Manitoba

Greetings from the Communities in Bloom National Office,

We are pleased to announce the 9th Edition of the National Symposium on Parks & Grounds, focussing this year on "Best Practices in Ornamental Horticulture" and "Tourism: Promotion and Sustainability", with expert speakers from across Canada and abroad. This annual event is a unique venue for industry professionals from the public and private sectors, community volunteers and elected officials to meet and exchange information on key topics and innovative practices.

The Host City of Brandon has an exciting program lined up for delegates - including themed breakfasts, optional tours and evening functions - and the Communities in Bloom 2006 National Awards Ceremonies offer the opportunity to learn more about the program and its participants, while celebrating community achievements across Canada and abroad.

Other activities and venues such as the Community Exhibits and the Rendez-Vous Lounge offer further learning and networking opportunities.

For further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at (514) 694-8871, ext. 224, or by e-mail at Additional information is also available at

We certainly hope to see you in Brandon!
