Spruce up event in Paducah on Saturday

Staff report

The community is invited to help Saturday with the beautification of downtown Paducah. Spring Spruce Up will be from 8:30 a.m. until noon. Volunteers, downtown residents and businesses will spend time beautifying the flower beds and planters.

"This is a chance to show your community pride and help clean up and beautify the heart of Paducah," said Melinda Winchester, downtown development specialist and Paducah Main Street director. "This year, we are expecting even more visitors to Paducah with two quilt shows, Paducah Fall Fiber Festival, UNESCO Conference, additional showboats, the opening of the Holiday Inn Paducah Riverfront hotel, new conventions, and, of course, the mainstay events that have been a part of downtown over the last few years."

Volunteers are asked to meet at the gazebo at 2nd and Broadway at 8:30 a.m. for instructions. Volunteers will be assigned an area including the gazebo area, sections of Broadway, 3rd Street, and sections of Kentucky Avenue and Jefferson Street. A group of volunteers will be working on the landscaping in front of the floodwall murals.

All of the mulch and plants will be on site that morning. Plants are being provided by Phelps Farm Store with the mulch provided by the Paducah Parks Department.

For more information on how you or your group can help, contact Winchester at 270-444-8690 or mwinchester@paducahky.gov.
