The annual Mentelle neighborhood potluck picnic is this Sunday, Sept. 17, 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., in the Mentelle Park Median. Eddie Owens will be grilling hamburgers and brats. Please bring a dish to share, plus your own beverage and a chair or blanket.
There will be street games and live music; neighborhood musicians can bring their instruments and join in. The Lexington Fire Department will have a truck there to see, and you can chat with firefighters.
The association has a city permit to close Mentelle Park around the median nearest Cramer Avenue between about 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. For everyone’s safety, it would be helpful if parked cars were moved off that section of the street beforehand and in-and-out traffic was limited during the picnic. Sorry for any inconvenience.
