Front Yard Favourites
Final judging for the Blackburne in Bloom contest was done last weekend and the winners were revealed on
our website for the first time last night. In an extremely tight
contest, the home at 929 Blackett Wynd, narrowly won over two homes on
the same street - 907 Blackett Wynd and 927 Blackett Wynd. Full details
on the final results can be found here.
17 other homes were named finalists and also looked great this year. Here is a list of the finalists.
A recent round of vehicle break-ins in the community should remind
everyone that it's important to keep your cars locked and take all
valuables out before doing so. Three cars were broken into within a week
in late June and early July. These thefts bring to 10 the number of
reported crimes in the community already this year. That's just one
fewer than the total for 2013. If you see anything suspicious, help your
neighbour and contact City Police.
Here's a link to the City Police crime stats website.
Thanks For Your Payment
to everyone who paid their association membership fees for the 2014-15
year by the July 31 deadline. This year members had the option of using
online payments and roughly 40 percent did. There were a few issues, but
all were manageable. Some changes will be made to the system for next
year to make it easier to use.
We are still looking for payments from around 40 members and reminder invoices went out in the mail last week.
