Mentelle Park neighbors will be doing the annual spring cleanup and mulching of the garden beds in the median at 9 a.m. Saturday. All are welcome to join.
Because rain is forecast tomorrow morning, the annual spring Mentelle Park median cleanup has been postponed until 9 a.m. next Saturday, April 29.
Thanks to everyone who came out this morning for the annual Mentelle Neighborhood Association Easter Egg Hunt and Book Swap. And special thanks to this year’s organizers, Jessica Faye Mohler and Kim Naujokas.
Thanks to an $85,000 grant, Ashland Elementary School in the neighborhood has raised enough money for a new playground, which is to be built in June. More details on Kentucky.com and in today’s Lexington Herald-Leader.
The annual Easter Egg Hunt & Book Swap for Mentelle Neighborhood residents and their families will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 15 in the Mentelle Park Median. There will be separate egg hunts for little kids and big kids and a book swap and socializing for adults. (In case of rain that morning, watch for email updates on rescheduling plans.)
Donations of filled plastic eggs are appreciated. Anyone willing to donate, please email Jessicafayefisher@yahooo.com and indicate the number of eggs you will be contributing. Our goal is to fill 250 eggs. Eggs may be dropped off on the Mohler family porch at 346 Memory Lane (last house on the right) by Thursday, April 12. If you have books to swap, either bring them with you that morning or drop them off beforehand on the Eblen family porch at 52 Mentelle Park.
Jill DeBolt will be leading a spring cleanup in the Mentelle Park median beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 22. Please come if you want to help with weeding, mulching and stick pick-up. (Rain date: Saturday, April 29.)
