Gifts from Charlottetown

Blog, Making a Difference

The 2010 Winterlights Symposium and Awards was in Charlottetown.

Two Guelph resident’s, Margaret and Ivan Stinson, were invited to be honorary chairs of the event by the Mayor of Charlottetown for their “outstanding contribution and support of Charlottetown and to the National organization”.  What a terrific honour for these two individuals.

Both have been involved in Communities in Bloom for years.  In 1999, when the City of Guelph was the champion in the Communities in Bloom competition, Margaret presented the City with a handcrafted wall hanging.  It was gifted as a memorial to Margaret’s grandparents who operated a meat shop on Carden Street.

Margaret and Ivan took a letter from me for the Charlottetown Mayor along with a  gift  from our City.  After their return, they presented me with a letter from the Charlottetown Mayor and Council and a lovely picture book of their city.

This couple is a wealth of ideas and made me aware of this highly successful program in Charlottetown.
