Keeping Pembroke Beautiful
June 21st, 2015 Proclaimed Garden Day

The City of Pembroke participated actively in Communities In Bloom between 1998 and 2014. It is  an international beautification and environmental awareness program that provides information and education in order to instill civic pride and community appreciation of our surroundings.
