Latest Keep Noblesville Beautiful News
It was a successful SERVE weekend for KNB. Not only does Embrace the Trace look fantastic, but we enjoyed working with SERVE, Janus Developmental, Lions Club, City of Noblesville and Noblesville Parks Foundation. KNB made a good impression on all of the organizations and it was our opportunity to increase our visibility in the community.
Thanks so much to Jenna Romens for coordinating the jobs with SERVE, Janus and the Lions Club. Molly Martin & Dagny Zupin were there to man the KNB Booth, but ended up helping us dig and plant, thanks to both of them! Thanks to Patty Johnson at the Noblesville Street Department and Tim Stottlemeyer at Wastewater for loaning us tools and the Tree Board tent. An extra big thank you to Bruce Neal at the Noblesville Parks Department…without him we could not have completed the project in a timely manner. He took Jack to buy the plants, delivered the plants and mulch and offered us much needed advice on sod removal, planting and mulching. A good project we can be proud of. There is a water source at the trailhead, Jack and I will make sure to water so that the plants have an chance to establish themselves and then next year they are on their own.
Embrace the Trace was finally handed off to the Noblesville Parks Foundation and they were happy to be taking possession of it! Their board members are interested in partnering with KNB on another project, this time they have some resources they can bring with them.
The weather didn’t co-operate for the Midland Trace clean up, but the volunteers showed up and did what they could. We set up the KNB booth at the Midland Trace and had it been a nice day, we would have gotten a lot of exposure as everyone hardy soul who was out that morning stopped by to see what we were all about.
Stephanie and her Master Gardner crew had the Federal Hill Commons gardens looking great before the SERVE event.
Clean up and Planting at Riverside Cemetery
Friday’s clean up and planting at Riverside Cemetery was not only a big success but a lot of fun too. We had 8 volunteers, all really good workers and the job was done in less than 2 hours and looks great. Evelyn Lees who is in charge of the cemetery for the City of Noblesville came by after we were done and gave her stamp of approval. It was a rewarding project. Thanks so much to everyone who came and to the City of Noblesville Street and Parks Department who helped us out. We couldn’t have done it without them! Jack and I will water the plants to make sure they survive. Next summer they are on their own!

New Perennial Beds Installed in Federal Hill Commons
Volunteers from Keep Noblesville Beautiful recently installed two perennial beds located in the front entrance to the Green Room at Federal Hill Commons.
The Green Room, the site of the former First Merchants Bank, is the park’s rental and indoor event facility and features an outdoor patio. It will be used for corporate events, general rentals for events like family reunions, birthday parties and wedding and baby showers.
Federal Hill Commons is a 6.75-acres park in Downtown Noblesville that extends the downtown across the White River. Federal Hill Commons will provides a park setting that encourages the arts and cultural programs while incorporating the rich history of Federal Hill, which dates back to the 1800s.
The 125 perennials for the plant beds were donated by Hamilton County Master Gardeners. The Purdue Master Gardener Program makes the latest information about gardening and home horticulture available to people with a deep interest in gardening. Purdue Master Gardener Volunteers help others grow by sharing what they learn and by leading educational gardening activities in their communities.
