Celebrate Make a Difference Day Oct. 22 in Covington


National Make a Difference Day is Oct. 22, and Covington residents can choose from three organized neighborhood projects.
 
Pitch in to landscape, weed and mulch, or paint at Latonia’s Barb Cook Park or head over to the Goebel Pool Paint Party — the continued work of Make Goebel Great.
 
On Covington’s Westside 18 trees along Holman Avenue that were vandalized in July will be replanted, along with 50 new trees, throughout the neighborhood. A city arborist will join community members in Orchard Park to demonstrate urban environment techniques.
 
Across the nation, thousands of projects will take place on what is one of the largest single days of service.
 
“Covington’s residents want to see the city thrive,” said Shannon Ratterman, program manager for community development at The Center for Great Neighborhoods. “And these projects are one way to make that happen. It’s a great opportunity to give back to the community and meet neighbors in the process.”
