This exhibit demonstrates the magnificent impact the Communities in Bloom Program has had on Millet, Alberta, over the last decade. The Program, committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and the beautification of municipalities, invites cross-country participation. A volunteer jury evaluates the communities on tidiness, turf, urban forestry, landscaped areas, heritage conservation, environmental community involvement and floral displays. When the program announces winners at a national award ceremony every year, Millet has always been a strong contender. The exhibit is a way of acknowledging and remembering the efforts of a volunteer-driven community while informing the world about "The Prettiest Little Town in Alberta".
