Dauphin put on its best face last Thursday as judges from Communities in Bloom (CiB) toured the city evaluating beautification efforts and a variety of other criteria such as environmental action, heritage conservation, tree management, landscape and plant and floral displays.

I just want to say your town looks fabulous you’re doing a really great job. Kudos to you, you’re well on your way to making this sparkle,” said Susan Ellis, national chairperson of the CiB board of directors who was judging the community along with Alex Pearl from Centerville, Ohio.

Dauphin is competing internationally this year against Ingria, Italy; Velika Polana, Slovenia; Glaslough Tidy Towns, Ireland; Lewisburg, West Virginia; and Sussex, New Brunswick.

“In order to be here in this competition you have to have been invited and there are only five other communities in the world in the international smallest category,” Ellis said.
