Keep Noblesville Beautiful members will be very busy in the coming weeks ensuring the city looks its best as the spring flowers begin to bloom and residents spend more time outside.
For those who are not familiar with the group, Keep Noblesville Beautiful is a community improvement organization providing educational programs and community action programs to the general public in the Noblesville area. Keep Noblesville Beautiful engages citizens in beautifying the city, improving the quality of the environment and fostering pride in the community.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, Keep Noblesville Beautiful (in partnership with the Noblesville Tree Board) will be giving away 200 tulip tree seedlings on the lawn of the historic Noblesville Courthouse Square, as part of the fourth annual Arbor Day on the Square celebration. The Hamilton County Master Gardener Association (www.hcmga.org) will be demonstrating hosta splitting and distributing free cuttings along with free daylilies while they last.
Residents are encouraged to stop by and take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about these great community organizations.
On May 19, Keep Noblesville Beautiful will host its 2012 Spring Blitz – the annual time members roll up their sleeves and help our neighbors, showing the group’s commitment. This year’s Spring Blitz neighborhood is bordered by North, 10th, Evans and 16th streets.
Keep Noblesville Beautiful, in cooperation with the Noblesville Street Dept., City Hall, HCMGA and Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources Tree Stewards conducted its fifth neighborhood cleanup blitz in 2011. At that time, volunteers assisted 36 homes in the designated area, provided removal of more than 240 yards of trash, filled a box truck from Disposal Alternatives Organization Recycling with reclaimed materials and removed several old trees that were becoming hazardous.
