Beautification projects scheduled
The College Hill beautification team has scheduled work days for the next two Sunday afternoons, April 28 and May 5, noon to 3 p.m. both days. Volunteers — and anyone can volunteer, especially you — will meet at the pergola at Mendenhall and Walker. Projects include removing the hedge across the street from the pergola and tending some of the flower beds that need attention. Click here for more information.
