Communities in Bloom

Brooks Communities in Bloom committee was formed by a small group of enthusiastic people in 2001. From the beginning they have enjoyed full co-operation and participation from Recreation and Parks of the City of Brooks.

Their objective has always, and continues to be, the beautification of our community as well as the improvement of the quality of life for all the citizens of Brooks. We have entered the Provincial Communities in Bloom contest in Brooks' population category. They have stressed at Board levels that beautification was their goal, not winning. Nevertheless, they have been awarded top points each year culminating in a 5-Bloom Award in 2005. This year they have courageously chosen to compete at the National level at the encouragement of the judges.

The Communities in Bloom group has chosen the "Petunia" as their symbolic flower as much for it's showiness as for it's durability in our dry and windy climate. This flower is presented in their logo. In 2005, our Centennial year the Morden Centennial Rose was also adopted and over 300 roses planted in and around Brooks, as a legacy for our centennial.

Communities in Bloom also looks after the Historic Buildings in the City of Brooks. Many buildings have been marked as Historical Landmarks.
