With the last ornament packed away. lights wrapped, carpets rolled up and the stands and sand bags tucked away for another year, we finally get down to the challenging task of counting the ballots and announcing a winner for Best Overall Tree.

The Parade of Trees once again extended onto the plaza at Lynn Valley Centre and we were thrilled to welcome new participants! We know you’ve been eagerly awaiting the results so without further ado, here they are . . . *drumroll please* Best Tree Overall:¬† Sitka Coast Construction Honorable Mention: Silver Harbour Seniors Activity Center Best School Tree: Boundary Elementary School And a special mention to St. Clements with their ‘Building Community Spirit’ Theme.
