BURLINGTON, ON May 22, 2011 – The weather isn’t all bad. The closing dates for the Civic Rose Award nominations has been moved back a week. Lawry Ellis said earlier this week that the wet Spring is going to mean a lot of gardens just won’t be at their best so we have moved the date on which nominations have to be in back a week.

The nomination forms must be in by June 30th. CLICK HERE for a copy of the nomination form. You can if you wish nominate yourself.

The Civic Rose Award is the top and much sought after prize for the gardening crowd with the 2010 Mayor’s Cup going to an address on Idlewood Court. For a look at all the 2010 winners – CLICK HERE.

Mayor Rick Goldring mentioned at a recent Council meeting that perhaps the Mayor’s Cup could be renamed the Burlington Cup, which isn’t going down all that well with the gardeners who point to a 32 year tradition which they don’t think should be tampered with.

While the Mayor may not be a gardener he is an environmentalist and does have a sense of history. One would hope that the Mayor doesn’t flush 32 years of history into the lake.
