Sandy Dennis Honoured with Colour

Anyone who knew Sandy Dennis would agree that she was a passionate Councillor for the Town of Yarmouth. Walking up to the front doors of Town Hall would have been an enjoyable activity for the late Councillor, but ask any member of Yarmouth Communities in Bloom (CIB) and they would all agree that she felt something was missing from the front of an otherwise beautiful structure: COLOUR. That all changed on Tuesday as CIB members, along with members of Sandy's family, planted three gorgeous planter bowls at town hall in her honour. The new colours speak volumes and are a great tribute to a great lady. Thank you CIB members and Sandy's family for these three amazing gestures that will serve as a talking point for the Fall Symposium and far beyond.
