Langley display wins blue ribbonAugust 27th, 2009 at Thu, 27th, 2009 at 10:31 am by Brian Kelly
Langley was a blue-ribbon winner at the Island County Fair this year.
The city won first place for its parks and open space display, Kathleen Landel, assistant to Mayor Paul Samuelson, told the Langley City Council at its meeting last week.
The prize-winning display features a series of stations depicting events in the history of park and open-space planning by city officials and volunteer citizen groups, and their recommendations for the future. The display was unveiled this past spring, and has been shown at public meetings to gather input.
“It’s the city’s first blue ribbon,” Landel said.
“Next year we should enter our beans,” she added, pointing to the little garden outside city hall.
