VERMILION IN BLOOM

VERMILION, AB

The community of Vermilion runs Vermilion in Bloom program to keep their town vibrant and beautiful all year long. In January, the program starts off their fundraising tradition with Vermilion in Bloom Ladies Night, to be held at Martino’s International Café this year. Women from the community will come together for the evening to donate in the program and have fun. The program raises funds to contribute to the town’s beautification program, brightening the streetscape throughout downtown with flowers, improving public gathering places, coordinating the addition of "urban friendly" trees, dressing the town for the holidays and so much more. The community shows strong commitment to the program, which has managed to attract over 100 volunteers in a town of only 4000 residents.
