West St. Catherine Neighborhood Association

Brightside Events

Feb 22, 2005

Spring is coming soon and Brightside is ready to partner with you to
beautify your neighborhood!

Brightside is Louisville's non-profit organization dedicated to promoting
environmental stewardship and the beautification of our community.

Mayor Jerry Abramson would like to encourage you to post these events in
your association newsletters and invite your friends to participate.

COMPOST SALE - on Saturdays in March
Brightside and Waste Management of Kentucky are hosting a compost sale on
Saturdays during March at the Outer Loop Recycling and Disposal Facility
located at 2673 Outer Loop. Waste Management of Kentucky is generously
donating the compost to Brightside. Compost is an excellent resource for
protecting plants and adding organic matter to enrich the soil. The compost
was created from leaves, grass clippings, and other yard waste and has been
screened to eliminate debris. Proceeds from the compost sale will benefit
Brightside's community education and beautification efforts. Brightside's
sale - at a great value - helps meet the high demand for compost in the
spring when it is used as mulch or fertilizer for trees, gardens, and
landscaped areas.

Dates: March 12, 19, and 26
Time: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Location: Outer Loop Recycling and
Disposal Facility, 2673 Outer Loop
Compost fees: $2.50 per bag
$30 for a small
pickup truck load
$35 for a regular pickup truck load
(Trailers and larger trucks will be measured on site and charged

COMMUNITY WIDE CLEAN UP - Saturday, March 26, 2005
Brightside will hold a "Community Wide Cleanup" on Saturday, March 26th.
This spring-cleaning date is set not only for our own Louisville Metro area
cleanup but it also corresponds to cleanups taking place in communities
across the state and nation. The Keep America Beautiful Great American
Cleanup is scheduled from March 1st through May 31st and Kentucky's
Commonwealth Cleanup will be the week of March 20th through March 26th.

We need your help to make this a successful community-wide effort. Please
contact Angela Auter at 574-2319 or angela.auter@loukymetro.org with your
commitment to help keep Louisville Metro clean and green. Your
organization will determine your cleanup site and the time your volunteers
will meet. Brightside will provide bags and gloves as well as making sure
that your bags will be picked up.

As your partner to help you clean up your neighborhood, we ask that you
mentioned Brightside and use our logo in your newsletters and flyers to
advertise the clean up.

We will be providing a list of all neighborhood cleanup activities to the
media, so please make sure your association/group's clean up is registered
with Brightside.

PRE-DERBY CLEANUP - Wednesday, April 27, 2005
The 8th Annual Pre-Derby Cleanup is scheduled for Wednesday, April 27, 2005.
The annual downtown cleanup asks business to allow their employees time off
during the workday to volunteer in sprucing up the downtown and Broadway
Corridor for our Derby Guests. If you would like to volunteer to help from
2 - 4 PM please contact Angela Auter at 574-2319 or
Angela.auter@loukymetro.org .

The Spring FlowerShower is approaching. Due to the generosity of our
Spring FlowerShower sponsor, Meijer, we will make flowers available to
non-profit organizations to plant in PUBLIC SPACES. If your non-profit
organization would like to be added to the mailing list for information on
receiving flowers, please contact MetroCall at 311 or 574-5000, please make
sure you let them know you want to be added to the Brightside mailing list
for FlowerShower.
