A note from our Median cleanup crew…

A big thank you to everyone who assisted with the Mentelle Median clean up.  We had nine neighbors brave the cold and damp on Saturday morning!   All the beds are weeded and mulched except the last bed on the Cramer end, new trees have been mulched and tree limbs trimmed at the historic marker location.   Special thanks to Madison Fortune who nourished us with hot chocolate.

Our median is looking great and ready for the historic marker dedication!

Mentelle Median cleanup

A reminder that this Saturday morning, May 14, at 9am, we will all be gathering to clean up the median. Please bring your gardening gloves and any tools that might be helpful.

If it is raining at 9am, we will wait and begin once it stops and dries out a bit.
