The Old West End Neighborhood Association teemed up with the folks at Beech Grove Cemetery to host a historical tour of the cemetery’s Section B. Refreshments were available and displays presented both before and after the tour. The fundraiser was very successful, selling out the 125 available tickets the night of the tour. Pictures of the event can be found on the StarPress website.
The East Central neighborhood purchased the historic Emily Kimbrough house and hosted a fundraiser to help raise funds for its rehabilitation and reuse as a community gathering place. The All Things Pumpkin fundraiser included a tour of two of the neighborhood’s most prominent painted ladies all decked out for All Hallow’s Eve, along with a tour of the Emily Kimbrough home.
The Old West End, Blaine/Southeast and East Central neighborhoods participated in the Muncie Sanitary District’s Spring 2014 neighborhood cleanups with groups of residents working from 8:00 am to 11:00 am picking up trash in the alleys and along the streets. The event was a great success in helping to beautify Muncie’s neighborhoods. Thank you to all those who participated!
