Clearing of the land and preparing the soil for planting is beginning. At our March meeting of BNA, the following information was requested to be passed along to you, our members. Thank you for your support in the past, and please extend an invitation to a neighbor or relative to join us as we beautify our “City of Trees”.
  • Cantastic – On March 30, an interested group of members met to discuss this concrete waste can painting project. Chair, Bridget Vogt has acquired a grant to help fund this project, but donations and volunteers are still needed for it to become a reality. Interested in helping, with money or talent? Call or e-mail Bridget at 859-322-6392 or

To help, and enjoy some of the fruits of your labor, garden workers meet on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Cinder blocks are needed to edge the garden. They may be dropped off there or, again, Bridget is the contact person for this project.

Garden team members have already cleared the planters in the city and re-planted with Spring pansies. A big thank you to them!
