Arborg Communities in Bloom 

Although Arborg does not have an active Garden Club, they do have a very active group of community volunteers working under the guidance or Town of Arborg’s Tom Chwaliboga. When a project is decided upon, a call is issued to the community and the volunteers take over with financial support from the Town. This small prairie town has successfully competed in consecutive Communities in Boom events and won their events. They do not hold formal meetings.
