A busy week for Beech Grove

A busy week for Beech Grove

    I would like to pass on some important information concerning our beautiful city and events that are set to take place over the next week or so.

   We would like to welcome our friends from Community Health Network to our city.  Last Friday was the ribbon cutting ceremony for their new office located behind the Taco Bell at 3850 S. Emerson Ave.

    On Saturday November 19 from 9AM to Noon behind city hall we will once again host a free shredding event. This time we are also giving you the chance to unload any appliance, TV, computer, bicycle, lawn mower or metals that you may have lying around for free. All you have to do is bring them down to city hall next Saturday morning and dispose of them. This service is also free thanks to our friends at Rustic Root and

Hanna’s Recycling Service.

    On Monday November 21 from 5:30PM to 7:30PM, Beech Grove City Schools will host another free Community Thanksgiving Dinner. This event will be held at Beech Grove High School. What a great event and kudos to our school system for doing this for the people of our area.

    On Tuesday November 22 at 7PM, our friends at South Emerson Church of God will once again host our annual Beech Grove Community Thanksgiving Service. This event is hosted by the Beech Grove Ministerial Association and is a wonderful event and we invite everyone to attend.

    One final note is that I would like to thank everyone who attended our Veterans Day Service on the steps of City Hall. What a great event and thank you to all of our veterans and those who are currently serving. Special thanks goes to Pastor Paul Kirby, Pastor Michael Hendrix and Pastor Patrick Wood for their leadership of this event. Continued thanks goes to Steve Nontell for his rendition of Flanders Field and the children’s choir from Holy Name Catholic School for their participation (it gives you more hope for our future).

    In this unfortunate time of stress in our country, we should pause and give thanks for everything that we have and everything we cherish. Our life is good and I’m thankful I live in a country were I can speak as a free person without the fear of retribution.
