The Tidy Towns award ceremony luncheon was held today at the Corner Brook Civic Centre. The awards luncheon, sponsored this year by Telus, is part of the Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador Annual Convention.

This province has plenty of beautiful places to visit and live, we’re pleased once again to acknowledge the efforts of our municipalities and community partners.”

Minister of Municipal and Intergovernmental Affairs, Honourable Keith Hutchings was on hand to present this year’s awards.
