Communities in Bloom Celebration

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Hosta at 241 Simcoe Street

This summer, LMHC undertook a Communities in Bloom project at 241 Simcoe Street, one of our high-rise, rent-geared-to-income buildings for adults.

With the help of a landscape design student from Fanshawe College and the support of several generous donors and sponsors, we were able to design an attractive landscape plan, remove and/or relocate several large shrubs, plant many new beds of perennials, and create a pleasant outdoor haven for our tenants that also adds value to the larger community of SoHo London. Now it’s time to celebrate the completion of our project.

What: Community open house and BBQ lunch

When: Wednesday, September 29, 2010 from 12 noon – 1PM

Where: 241 Simcoe Street, London (outdoor gardens, patio and tenant lounge)
