On The Road Again...

I'm glad to say that for the third year in a row I have the great pleasure of being a judge for the NL Tidy Towns competition. In case you want to know a little more about Tidy Towns you can check them out over here. It's a fantastic program that rewards municipalities for beautification, environmental efforts and community involvement.

This year I'll be heading all the way over to the West coast and I'll be checking in from time to time on Twitter with pics and news along the way. Check out my Twitter feed along the right side of the blog or follow me @TheRuralLens

In the previous years I have met some great people and seen some amazing work by municipalities of various sizes. I'm sure this year will be no different so why not come along for the digital ride!

No one could ever say it better then Rex Murphy.

So go here and read why July may be a great month of summer and a reason to celebrate for Canada but it will always be bittersweet for Newfoundland and Labrador.
