The Aetna Manor Revitalization Program (A.M.R.P.) is hosting its 2nd annual “Meet N’ Mow” event on Sat., May 11, 2019 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the southeast corner of 13th Ave. & Allen St. in Gary.
This community event is headed by the members of A.M.R.P.’s “Aetna Garden Club” — Marjorie Woodyard, Beulah Jones, Karyn Wesley, Darrell Love, Zeid Sharif — to clean and beautify this vacant city lot, affectionately called, “The Lily Lot.”
Although the name sounds like mowing will be the central activity, the goal is to simply clean and beautify the lot now that summer is around the corner.
Residents of Aetna/Aetna Manor/Indian Hills are invited to join the Aetna Garden Club for this community project. Lawn tools, equipment and supplies to complete the task will be supplied.
It is the organization’s hope as members and/or volunteers grow, they will be able to expand the effort into other lots within the community.
Other events on the calendar for the Aetna Manor Revitalization Program include:
Clean-up & Paint Party on May 31st and June 1st in Downtown Aetna (between 9th & 12th Avenues on Aetna St. in Gary), Pancake Breakfast – June, BBQ Bash – July, Community Yard Sale – August, and Fall Family Fun Fest – In Memory of Cpl. Charles Turner – GPD – September.
