“We are very pleased with our Bloom rating of three Blooms.  We received 516 points out of a possible 775 points.  This gave us a percentage of 66.58 which translates to three Blooms.”

The downtown and Boneyfiddle were the only areas considered during the judging.  The scoring grid was adjusted to remove the residential components.  The judges praised the flower pots in front of the city building, saying “They were outstanding and demonstrated an amount of dramatic flair for “Trill, Spill and Fill.”
MSP would like  to thank everyone that volunteered on a work crew or met with the judges in June.  Although MSP was the applicant for the award this was truly a community project which we could not have accomplished without the communities support.
