Communities in Bloom invited students to create banners

A dozen Harrison elementary students are being honoured for their contribution to the community.

A few months ago, the Harrison Hot Springs Communities in Bloom committee sent out a challenge to students to create artwork for banners. The winning entries are now being installed along Hot Springs Road, and a special ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. at the end of Hot Springs Road.

They artists are Trevan Kozel, Kaitlin McGillivray, Anna Fehr, Emilie Meinen, Zoel Jackson, Garrett Tailby, Chloe Amos, Andrew Chin, Brianna Heaton, Emilee Wallin, Serena Madsen and Aidan Gillis.

The banners will hang for a few months, said councillor Dave Harris.

“They will be a wonderful addition to the community,” he said.
