The annual Ville Fleurie contest culminated with the presentation of awards last week at City Hall. District 6 was well represented with award winning gardens being recognized and celebrated along with other beautiful displays by our homeowners, be it in single family dwellings, town houses, duplexes or high rises.

Councillors Sam Goldbloom, Allan J. Levine (left) and former Councillor Harold Greenspon co-chaired the event, with our Parks and Recreation Department doing their usual excellent job coordinating a classy affair. Noted classical pianist Edwin Brownell was back to entertain the audience with his fancy finger work on the piano keys.

Congratulations to repeat winners Corrie, Mitchell and Madison White of Melling Ave for their tremendous efforts at the “White House”.

Kudos also to Lucie Bendahan of Parkhaven Ave, Joanne and Eric Goldapple of Einstein Ave, Joanne Stroll also of Einstein and Frank Palucci on Kildare Road.

CSL horticulturalist Rene Lapointe was singled out for extraordinary work in creating beautiful floral displays along our main arteries and at city buildings and parks.
