Congratulations to this year’s Maisons Fleuries contest winners. The Maisons Fleuries garden beautification contest is held yearly by Côte Saint-Luc. The city awards prizes to residents who create attractive green spaces with blossoming trees, flowers and shrubs. A panel of judges views the gardens and selects the winners and runners up in the various categories.

I was honoured to present the awards for single family and semi-detached homes in District 6 last week at the Aquatic and Community Centre.

In District 6:

Third place went to Eric and Joann Goldapple at 5763 Einstein.

Second place finish was awarded to Leah Benedek at 5660 Parkhaven.

And the first prize in District 6 was given to Rose Sacks at 5793 Einstein.

Special elite category winner in District 6 was awarded to Lucie Bendahan at 5616 Parkhaven.

Congratulations to our district winners and to all who participated.  You are all winners for beautifying your homes, your streets and neighbourhoods.

I’d like to add my own award to a new resident in the townhouses on Kellert Avenue. The Jacobson family has done a beautiful job of sprucing up the newest residences in Cote Saint-Luc and will inspire other townhouse owners in their complex and elsewhere to do the same next year.

My own special recognition goes out to the owners of this townhouse on Kellert Avenue in District 6
