Communities in Bloom


Brooks has a strong community spirit where people work together to continuously enhance our quality of life. One prime example is Communities in Bloom where the City of Brooks has won the 2015 National Award in our population category. Residents volunteer their time and together with employees from the City of Brooks this program has been very successful.
