Eastend WINS Communities in Bloom Congratulations to everyone who worked hard to earn our four blooms for this year's Communities in Bloom contest. It is the most blooms we have earned to date and enough to win the category of 501-1000 population towns. We also received special mention for our Community Theme "Discover a Sanctuary for all Your Senses" which is part of the beautiful glossy promotional handout for the Town of Eastend which was created by Rafe Ring in cooperation with the Eastend Chamber of Commerce. I have included the full press release from Communities in Bloom which also includes a table showing the full results. Special mention should also go to our cousins in Maple Creek who were winners in the National Communities in Bloom this year. Bailee Is Going To Finals! Bailee Humphrey and her mare Mitch are heading to the CCA finals October 18 - 21st in Swift Current! After a successful year on the road Bailee will compete with the top 6 junior girls for the finalists title! Bailee should be very proud of her National ranking just as we, her hometown family and friends, are very proud of her achievement in barrel racing. Good Luck! Congratulations New Town Council Member Binkley Roxie Binkley was the victor in last Wednesday's election for Town Council giving her the empty seat. As always we should tip our hats to all contenders as vital parts of our democratic society and good luck to Roxie in her new role.
