By all predictions, Lexington is forecasted to receive 8-10" of snow during the next few days. If you must be out on the roads traveling this weekend, Councilman Bill Farmer's office has provided us with maps (attached) showing which streets and roads are cleared first (ranked 1 through 4) so that you can better plan your route. Please travel safe and as always, keep an eye out for your neighbors.

One Saturday August 8th, the Kenwick Neighborhood Association and Victory Christian Church helped host a sign painting party that was suggested and planned by Jarah Jones. There was great turn out and kids made 40 signs to help remind drivers to slow down with the start of the 2015 school year.
The Kenwick Neighborhood Association holds a neighborhood wide yard sale every year in August or September.
This year's sale will be held on Saturday, September 19th, from 8 am to 2 pm (rain or shine).
All neighborhood residents are invited to participate. Sales will be held at individual households. The cost is $4.00 which helps pay for advertising, signs and printing. Signup forms will be made available prior to the yard sale. For additional information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calling all KIDS, families, neighbors.........join us this
With the new, upcoming school year and our little ones on foot, bikes, scooters & strollers, let's remind drivers, speeders and ourselves to be a little bit more observant. Kids will be painting bright, fun, funky yard signs with important messages...plus a whirligig or two...to remind drivers to: SLOW DOWN, Kids on Bikes, We ♥ our children, KIDS AT PLAY, etc. We are looking for neighbors to adopt these signs and bring awareness and ART to our streets.
Bring your kids dressed for messy action + FUN!!
Saturday, August 8 from 10 am to 1 pm at the Victory Christian Church Community Garden
Please contact Jarah Jones at email@example.com for any questions, to adopt a sign, to volunteer with painting or "planting" signs.
Should there be rain............we will change the date!
