Improvements to community appreciated

The past several months have seen a number of improvements to Summerland.

Dear Editor:

The past several months have seen a number of improvements to Summerland.

The Anglican Church painting is so beautiful. Great job on the painting at the IOOF Hall. Hope you can do the other side too.

The flowers in the brick planters, hanging baskets and roundabout look lovely. Hope to see a major centre piece in the roundabouts in the future.

The upgrades of Rosedale Avenue and Prairie Valley Road, with trees, flowers and sidewalks have been significant improvements to both entrances to Summerland.

The roundabouts are certainly more efficient than the stop signs.

The fire hall now looks like a fire hall. Great job.

To the businesses which have improved the look of their buildings, thank you. And I hope more businesses will do the same.

We are finally on the right track. Let’s keep going with improvements.

The movies in the park on Friday nights have been fun and well attended.

Thank you to our city council and all other departments involved for adding upgrades and colour to our community.

R.J. Taylor
