Cache Creek was awarded three blooms this year by the provincial Communities in Bloom group for 2012, with a special mention for the Gateway Park at the main intersection.

Carmen Ranta, chair of the Cache Creek Communities in Bloom committee, said she was proud of her community and the effort it put into Communities in Bloom this year. She says she is already looking forward to next year’s competition and to utilizing some of the recommendations made by the judges.

In the same population category as Cache Creek, 100 Mile House received four blooms and Barriere received three blooms. Barriere received special mention for community involvement and the McLure Wildlife Monument.
