Bobcaygeon Enters Communities in Bloom

For Immediate Release June 13, 2018

There's a fresh spring in the step of many Bobcaygeoners thanks to some exciting plans for this summer.


Impact 32 is working together with the Chamber of Commerce, the Horticultural Society, and Environmental Action Bobcaygeon, and involving all local volunteer groups, businesses and residents to make sure the town is at its most beautiful for a visit from the Ontario Communities in Bloom judges on July 11th and 12th.

“Whether you're a resident, cottager or visitor, you know that Bobcaygeon is a very special place, surrounded by all that nature has to offer,” says Impact 32 volunteer Ann Adare. “Brimming with pride and an engaged community, we celebrate our heritage, care for our environment, create parks and trails, line our streets and fill our gardens with amazing displays that warm our hearts and please our senses. As a result of the efforts of our community members, Bobcaygeon is perfectly positioned to seek recognition from the Communities in Bloom program in all categories

Based on other communities' experiences, benefits to Bobcaygeon will be significant.

  • Citizens, local groups, businesses and government working together

  • Increased civic pride and community involvement

  • Beautification of the entire community, improved landscaping, floral displays, tree canopy, and tidiness

  • Enhanced economic development (tourism, hospitality and retail) along with marketing and promotional opportunities.

The Bobcaygeon Communities in Bloom team is asking everyone to work together and help put our best foot forward this summer to show just what a vibrant village Bobcaygeon is. Community participation from all ages and walks of life is encouraged. The new Bobcaygeon Communities in Bloom website,, has more information about the program as well as a volunteer sign-up form and photo-highlights of the village's proudest moments.
