Bright for the Holidays

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to make Bellevue look beautiful for the holidays. Since January, about 50 BNA volunteers have dedicated almost 300 hours to revitalize and extend the decorations throughout the city. Fantastic job! The overhead frame lights have been restrung, the parks have received new decorations, and new swags and garland have been hung. So far 2,500 feet of LED electric lighting wire, 4,100 LED light bulbs, and 5,500 zip ties have been used. The city and Public Works have also contributed a great deal to this project totaling close to 400 hours to making Bellevue beautiful and bright for the holidays this year!

Continue the Tradition

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey you are welcome at the nativity. St. John United Church of Christ invites everyone to the community nativity scene which will be displayed on the church property (520 Fairfield Ave, Bellevue, KY) through January 6th. A procession will take place on Friday, December 6th at 6:30pm. Dedication of the nativity scene will be at approximately 7pm and FREE hot chocolate and cookies will be served!

Keeping Fresh Holiday Greens Alive Indoors

Keeping holiday greenery fresh is the challenge of the season.

Stick boughs of holly in floral foam to keep it from getting dry and crispy.

Use pine, fur, and cedar for indoor garland, swags, and wreaths.

Soak greens overnight in a tub filled with water before hanging them inside so they can absorb as much water as possible.

If you use lights on your greenery, make sure they are cool lights. 

Keep greenery away from heat sources such as fireplaces, vents, and sunny windows and mist them every few days.

No BNA Meeting

There is no BNA meeting in December. Happy Holidays!
