And part of her passion came from making Yarmouth into a bright and welcoming place.

Dennis, who was a town councillor, passed away in February after a long and strong battle with cancer.

As a tribute to Dennis at the town hall property, Yarmouth Communities in Bloom (CIB) purchased three large planter bowls to add to the town hall property to bring about some added colour to this part of the property – something, the committee says that was lacking and Dennis herself would have loved to have seen added.

On Tuesday, June 18, Communities in Bloom members, along with members of Dennis’ family, planted flowers in the planter bowls at the town hall in her honour.

Dennis had been very involved in Communities in Bloom while serving as a councillor.

“The new colours speak volumes and are a great tribute to a great lady,” the town says. “Thank you CIB members and Sandy's family for these three amazing gestures that will serve as a talking point for the (Communities in Bloom) Fall Symposium (happening in Yarmouth this year) and far beyond.”
