Volunteer Opportunities

Communities in Bloom Committee Organizers (2023 growing season)

Communities in Bloom is a nationally supported organization that promotes the utilization and development of green spaces, flowers and trees within the community. The program promotes local green spaces, from a provincial level up to a national level (only if it's desired!). If you or your organization would be interested in acting as Community Leaders for the Town of Killam, please see more details on the Communities in Bloom link on the Alberta Recreation & Parks website at www.arpaonline.ca/program/cib

If this is a fit for you and your passion, please contact the Killam Town Office at 780-385-3977 or email at: tkillam@telusplanet.net
