Most Beautiful winners

August 28, 2013 - 4:08 PM

Mayor Doug Findlater, on behalf of West Kelowna Council, presented awards to the community’s Most Beautiful Contest winners, part of the District of West Kelowna’s participation in the Communities in Bloom competition.

“Your hard work to create these beautiful spaces is to be commended,” Mayor Findlater said to the winners. ”The District of West Kelowna is proud to recognize the special efforts that our residents take to make this such a beautiful community.”

The District of West Kelowna has participated in the Communities in Bloom program since 2005 and holds a Most Beautiful Contest every year. The categories have changed and evolved but the premise behind the contest is to provide an opportunity for residents to show off the hard work in they put into their gardens, regardless of property size.

In 2013 West Kelowna received 13 entries in the competition. The winners are:

- Residential Large Garden                Toni & Grant Maddock
- Residential Small Garden                 Cecile & Wally Derkatch
- Edible Garden                                     Steffe & Jim Brown
- Business Garden                                The Cove
- Honourable Mentions:
* Residential Large Garden                Jean & Paul Saygnavong
* Residential Small Garden                Otto & Gisela Karrer

Mayor Findlater thanked the three Master Gardeners who helped judge the contest for West Kelowna, Heather Doheny, Pat Zander and Hermann Matis.
