The Beautification Group would like to work on a park project but we need residents who are physically able to help. The overgrown shrubs/bushes around mailboxes and light poles are our landscapers responsibility but the overgrown, out of shape or in some cases mostly dead bushes around the green electrical boxes are not. Most homes have them between homes. The group would like to make those look trimmed and cleaned up. If able residents could help do this to the ones in their yards it would greatly help. If residents are unable the group will do it if you let us know.    Beautification group (Deb Winiewicz)

This is just a reminder that the visiting nurse will not be coming to Henrich Hall until further notice !
