This requires immediate attention: our neighbourhood is in the running to get a facelift sponsored by Benjamin Moore Paints! Whatever I was going to blog about this week has been bumped. We need your help!
First, the story. Benjamin Moore Paints started running a contest to choose 20 “main streets” all over Canada and the U.S. to repaint. The program is called Main Street Matters, and its goal is to help preserve important streets in communities, and to keep businesses there thriving.
On the Paint What Matters website, there was a list of nominated towns and cities. After the online voting (over 32,000 were cast) was said and done on June 30, 2013… Halifax made the list of winners! The next step? Deciding which street within our beautiful seaside city will get a complete three-block makeover courtesy of Benjamin Moore.
Quinpool Road is on the list of potential winners for Halifax. How great would our street look with a little makeover?? We’re a classic neighbourhood that would truly benefit from a three-block paint job. We need YOU to vote online every day until July 19th, the last day.
