Sundre Communities in Bloom
Sundre Community Profile (PDF)
Sundre Communities in Bloom is an ad hoc volunteer committee, supported financially and with administrative support by the Town of Sundre, whose goal is to meet the objectives of the Communities in Bloom organization. Their focus is not only on beautification through landscaping and flowers, but on environmental sustainability, community amenities, culture and history too.
Sundre's CIB committee consists of Town staff from the departments of community services and economic development, and representatives from the Chamber of Commerce, Sundre & District Museum, and Sundre Garden Club. Members of the community at large are also welcome to be a part of it.
In 2019, Sundre is participating in the provincial competitive category for communities between 2001-6000 people. Our evaluation date is August 7th.
