Clean-up crew helps CY look it’s best for Festival weekend

By Kristan Huntley
On Saturday, September 11, volunteers at the CY Quarterly Clean-up braved the potential rain to help make the neighborhood look its best for the Festival Friday 4 Miler runners and Festival visitors. Volunteers helped pull weeds, spread mulch, pick up trash (and a couple of dead birds – yuck!), and trim overgrown bushes to make parking easier and safer for visitors. The neighborhood simply looked fantastic after!
A big thank you goes out to our dedicated volunteers who did an amazing job! They were: David Early, John Kinsey, Emily Bishop, Andy Ashby, Leslie Thompson, Mark Morrison, Chris McHaney, Patrick Miller, Jessica Miller, Alex Miller, Tyrina and John Browning, Deborah Miller, Monika Aden, James Mayo, and Judi and Buzz Shellabarger. Also, we would like to give a very special thanks to Teresa Hester with Mulchworks at the Agricenter for donating mulch for our clean-up and beautification efforts. It is now much safer for pedestrians walking down the sidewalk, plus the gingko trees are loving the fresh mulch!
Keep an eye out for the next clean-up, and if you are interested in starting a block-level clean-up campaign or want to get involved with the Beautification Committee, please email Kristan Huntley at
