Twice the rain discouraged an annual Armstrong beautification event.

Not a third time, though.

Organized by the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce, students and volunteers took part on a gorgeous, sunny Wednesday morning, May 27, in planting flowers along a stretch of road known in the city as the Marigold Mile.

The volunteers planted marigolds in the hot sun along a stretch of Pleasant Valley Road.
