The Bell Court Neighborhood Association will have its annual all-neighborhood Labor Day potluck picnic on Sunday, 8/31,  in the Bell Park. All Bell Park neighbors plus their friends and families are invited.

Please bring a dish to share – soup, appetizer or dessert — and a beverage of choice. The BCNA will provide paper products, but, in an effort to minimize waste, we encourage each family to bring their own dishes, silverware and cups. Families are encouraged to bring lawn games.

The BCNA is excited to host an outdoor movie for this year’s picnic! Please bring blankets or chairs and stay to watch “The LEGO Movie” after the potluck. Popcorn will be provided by BCNA.

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm — Potluck
8:15 pm — Movie

The June 2014 newsletter has been posted online at http://bellcourt.wordpress.com/newsletters/. Look for the paper version in mailboxes in the next day or two.

CORRECTION: The neighborhood yard sale will be on Saturday, July 12. The July 18 date was incorrect.

Homeowners who experienced problems from the June 3 transformer explosion near Russell and East Bell may recover some of the repair and replacement costs. Kentucky Utilities will pay claims for damages as a result of this event. Contact Underwriters Safety and Claims (US&C) at 1-877-252-4839 to open a claim or for more information about this process.

2:00 Parade: This year’s Fourth of July parade through downtown Lexington will take place on Friday, July 4, at 2:00 p.m. The BCNA does not organize neighborhood participation in the parade but can provide some financial support to organizers who want to have an entry. Traditionally, neighborhood families have worked together to create a float or coordinate a bicycle group to participate in the parade. Please contact a Board member or email bcnainfo@gmail.com if you are interested in organizing or working on a neighborhood entry in the parade. We can help spread the word on the BCNA blog and Nextdoor Bell Court.

6:00 Picnic: Bell Court neighbors and friends are invited. We will gather in the park at the corner of Russell and East Bell for fun and fellowship. Bring a dish or two to share and your own drink. Paper products will be provided, but please bring your own if possible. In case of rain, we will gather in the Smith’s backyard at 212 East Bell Court.
