Neuse River Greenway Trail Open House

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

An open house for the Neuse River Trail will be held at Hedingham on March 23rd.

Our Crabtree Creek Greenway will connect to the Neuse River Trail. Once it’s complete, you’ll be able to walk or ride from here all the way to Horseshoe Farm Park near Falls Lake or down to Johnston County. Pretty cool.

Donations needed for Brenda Pulley

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

As you may have heard, a neighbor of ours on Millbank Street died in a
house fire February 21st. Elvis Pulley died tragically when the kerosene
heater he was refueling exploded.

Now his widow, Brenda Pulley, has literally nothing left. Not only has
she lost her husband, she has no furniture, clothes, or household items
of any sort. She does not even have a roof over her head, as their home
was destroyed by the fire.

If you have any items you wish to donate, whether it be furniture,
clothing, appliances – whatever, contact me and I will see that it gets
to her. If items need to be picked up, that can be arranged, too. You
can also bring items to our March 16th CAC meeting if that is more
convenient for you.

Please, let’s all do what we can to help Brenda put her life back together.

P.S. I’m told Brenda wears a size six clothes and size 6 1/2 shoes.
