The annual North Lawrence Cabin Fever Chili Supper is coming up on Monday, February 11th at 5:30 pm. It will be held at the Union Pacific Depot, 402 North 2nd St.
Neighbors bringing hot dishes are encouraged to come by a little early to get them set out. NLIA will be at the Depot starting at 4 pm to set up. We would prefer that you bring your dishes already cooked and held warm in a crock pot or other appliance. We will have power strips and extension cords available to use.
If you haven’t already signed up to bring a dish, please use this form:
Or call Ted at 842-7232
For folks not on Facebook, the regularly scheduled meeting for tonight, Monday, January 14th, has been canceled.
We will reschedule the meeting sometime in the next 2 weeks. We have a lot to talk about before the Cabin Fever Chili Supper in February.
Following up from the April meeting with our neighbors ICL, here is the link to the USGS map that was shared, indicating naturally occurring arsenic in groundwater in the United States.
The full meeting notes from March, April, and May will be posted soon.
The Neighborhood Garage Sale will be held Friday, May 18th and Saturday, May 19th, 2018.
The annual North Lawrence Spring Cleanup starts this weekend, culminating in our pickup day on Tuesday, April 17th.
Please have everything out to your normal trash pickup spot by 7 am that morning.
Bulky items will be accepted. If you need assistance moving such items to the trash pickup spot, and you don’t use Facebook, please email us with your contact information and what the item is, and we’ll post a request for help on Facebook for you.
Household Hazardous Waste will NOT be accepted on the pickup date. To schedule a separate day to drop off these items, which include (but are not limited to) paint, pesticides, solvents, adhesives, old batteries, antifreeze, aerosol sprays, and mercury thermometers, please call the city at 785-832-3030.
If you are unsure if what you’d like to dispose of is considered hazardous, please check the Household Hazardous Waste website: https://lawrenceks.org/swm/hhw/
If you are setting out boards or other lumber, please remove all metal, staples, screws, and nails from the boards.
The regular yard waste rules apply for bundling and bagging in brown paper bags or your brown city compost bin.
Over the weekend before the pickup, branches and limbs will be accepted for chipping at the site behind Centenary United Methodist Church. No branches less than 1/2 inch in diameter, and no small brush, bushes, loose leaves, twigs, grass clippings, or trash will be accepted. The mulch will be made available for free behind Ted’s house when it’s done.
Thanks for helping keep North Lawrence beautiful!
