Over the past several years, the landscaping at the “Welcome to Kennydale” sign next to the ARCO station became unsightly and in need of sprucing up. Starting in mid-March, KNA members Graham Dougherty, Rajendra Agrawaal, Darius & Vicki Richards and Alison Harter devoted their time over several days to remove weeds, level the ground, and install landscaping fabric in a 1,000 square foot area around the “Welcome” sign.
Coincidentally during this time, the KNA Board became aware that Troops 441, 443 and 444 of the Boy Scouts of America were planning a fundraiser for March 21st, in which they would deliver and spread beauty bark for a nominal cost. KNA immediately ordered 10 cubic yards, and also arranged for a 50-50 split of the cost with Imad Abu Alya, owner of the ARCO station and also the property on which the sign sits.
On the very rainy morning of March 21, the Scouts and their advisers arrived with the beauty bark and, joined by KNA representatives Rajendra Agrawaal and Anthony Ramos, did a first-class job of installing the bark.
Special thanks are due to all who are mentioned above, and also to the Scouts’ representative Laska Whiteaker, who did an excellent job of handling all the business arrangements to make this a successful endeavor for KNA, the residents of Kennydale, and the Scouts!
KNA is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Kennydale and fostering community spirit.
