We are delighted to bring this blog together and hope that it can serve as a connecting place for those of us who live in Grand Ridge Forest. Please look around the blog for information about local activities, links to various news and weather reports, and a few additional fun items.
By now you should have received a brief letter from us, the Holden's, explaining a little about ourselves and a project to help our neighborhood have a simple method to begin a recyling program. We will start picking up any bagged recyclable products on Saturday, April 18, 2009. This is in conjunction with the City of Wetumpka's Earth Day recycling efforts. Please place items in separate bags (plastics, papers, aluminum cans) in the same spot you would place your garbage can. We will drive around the neighborhood picking up bags starting at about 10:00 AM. The plan is to begin this on a bi-weekly basis and if the need grows we will consider doing it weekly. Anyone else who would like to participate or help in this effort please feel free to comment or send an email to the link below.
This is a beginning for things to come, new people to meet, and creating a forum for ideas, needs, opportunities, and events. We all live within a few blocks of one another and with a little imagination and discussion I'm sure we can come up with additional ways to benefit our neighborhood together.
Please feel free to post comments, questions, ideas, thoughts, or any suggestions you would like to on this blog. We've added a brief list of ideas (right hand column beneath the quote for the day) that could be of interest to some people. We would appreciate if you would indicate any of the items on the list that you think could be beneficial and please feel free to comment and add more.
