Ashcroft street banners unveiled

Ashcroft Communities in Bloom will hold an unveiling ceremony for the new street banners they had painted.

Ashcroft Communities in Bloom, with assistance from local artist Jo Petty, recently hosted a street banner painting workshop. This workshop saw local citizens of all ages participate in the painting of lovely, new street banners that will decorate the poles on Railway Avenue. We would also like to acknowledge the United Way who provided the funding for this very worthwhile community project.

Communities in Bloom will be hosting a “Banner Unveiling” celebration to showcase the new banners along with the artists who painted them. The celebration will be held at Heritage Place Park on Saturday, May 3 at 10 a.m. We are extending an open invitation to all local residents to come and meet the artists and to see the banners “up close and personal” before they are installed on the poles.

The old banners will be taken down and held for retrieval. If you painted a banner and would like to have it returned to you please call Andrea Walker at 250 453 9402 to arrange pickup.
