It is with great sadness that Communities in Bloom shares the passing of Margaret Stinson, a long-time exceptional volunteer and wonderful ambassador for the Horticultural Sector. Margaret always provided such positive and meaningful contributions to CiB, along with her late Husband Ivan.  Margaret and Ivan started their involvement in 1996 on a local CiB Committee in East Hants, NS and then went on to be involved on National CiB committees including Marketing, Winterlights, Awards and a National and International judge from 1997 to 2009.  Margaret started the CiB Merchandise program in 1997 along with Ivan.  Margaret will be remembered as a dedicated volunteer of CiB, as well as having been a force in the horticultural community across Canada.  Our sympathies go out to her family.
