Judges com­mend Bay Roberts on its beauty

The Compass - - OPINION - — Jim Baird and Berta Briggs are judges with the Na­tional Edi­tion Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Town of Bay Roberts for a strong show­ing in the na­tional edi­tion of Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom in the 5,000 to 10,000 pop­u­la­tion cat­e­gory.

The bloom sta­tus for each mu­nic­i­pal­ity in the com­pe­ti­tion was de­clared in Ottawa on Oct. 26, 2013, at the Na­tional Sym­po­sium and Awards for Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom.

Even more de­serv­ing of con­grat­u­la­tions is the spe­cial men­tion Bay Roberts re­ceived for your won­der­ful mu­seum — the re­stored build­ing and the qual­ity of the col­lec­tions is most im­pres­sive.

As the judges who vis­ited Bay Roberts in July to eval­u­ate the com­mu­nity, we wish to com­mend the mu­nic­i­pal­ity for demon­strat­ing its strengths in all cri­te­ria un­der eval­u­a­tion.

The Bay Roberts Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom com­mit­tee along with the count­less vol­un­teers and many cit­i­zens showed us the beauty of the mu­nic­i­pal ity and taught us about the his­tory, the many lay­ers and vi­tal­ity of the com­mu­nity.

Most im­pres­sive was the quiet pride in their com­mu­nity by the groups and in­di­vid­u­als we met.

Also, gen­uine con­cern about the en­vi­ron­ment and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions is backed with ac­tion and an en­er­getic op­ti­mism. The care­fully main­tained trails along the coast­line must demon­strate some of the most stun­ning vis­tas in the world.

Bay Roberts is such a beau­ti­ful and friendly mu­nic­i­pal­ity!

We thank Bay Roberts for the won­der­ful hos­pi­tal­ity and for shar­ing your com­mu­nity with us dur­ing our eval­u­a­tion tour in July.

And, once again, con­grat­u­la­tions for demon­strat­ing that you are among the most beau­ti­ful and liv­able com­mu­ni­ties in Canada!

Even more de­serv­ing of con­grat­u­la­tions is the spe­cial men­tion Bay Roberts re­ceived for your won­der­ful mu­seum — the re­stored build­ing and the qual­ity of the col­lec­tions is most im­pres­sive.
