The 2019 Mabou Blooms Campaign is dedicated with love to the memory of
In the same way that blooming flowers bring beauty and joy to our community, Becky’s enduring kindness, selfless love and understanding of the value of friendship brought beauty and joy to all the lives she touched.
From an early age, Becky had the ability to make people feel welcome. She formed friendships easily at Mabou Consolidated School, St. F.X. University, Nova Scotia Community college and in the places that she lived, worked and travelled to. She had a special light that will be missed forever.
Diagnosed with cancer in 2015, she faced her illness with grace, bravery and unwavering optimism. She was determined to live and made herself a living miracle. When told she had weeks to live, she made them months, when told she had only days, she made them weeks. Becky left this world on May 14, 2018 but her spirit has taken root in us all and the lessons she left for all those who loved her will blossom and grow forever.

About Mabou Blooms
Mabou is a village on the western side of Cape Breton known for its pristine beauty. We are often told "Mabou is a village that looks like everyone cares for it". The Mabou & District Community Development Association (MDCDA) is asking for your help to keep Mabou beautiful. Mabou Gardens is continuing to support the flower planting and maintenance program, but the additional costs and up keep of the flowers and bench sites is burdensome on a charity organization with very limited revenue.
We all agree as to the quality the flowers add to our Village landscape from June until October, please help us accomplish this!
