What Would Westerville Do? …

On Wednesday, June 13, 2018 – Beekeeping for kids sounds a little risky but there’s no risk in taking your kids to the library to learn about an essential aspect of nature. There may be greater risk in taking them to the courtyard in front of city hall where Westerville Parks and Recreation begins installing “The American Issue,” a statue representing the divisions brought about by Prohibition. Explaining that is absolutely more dangerous than the sting of a bee. Better yet, take them to the Community Center Wednesday night for the second discussion about converting the McVay home property into a new city park. It is probably more soothing to visit the Wednesday Farmers Market where strawberries and maple syrup are plentiful, No explanation needed.

Wednesday Market

It’ll be business as usual at the Wednesday Uptown Farmers Market.

That means more strawberries, maybe an early tomato or two, perhaps squash, and definitely Ohio-raised Tilapia, maple syrup, and a side of beef or pork.

Begins at 3:00 p.m. and ends at 6: p.m.

In the parking lot across from Church of the Messiah on North State.

Hempstead Road Park Meeting

Westerville Parks and Recreation has a public meeting on Wednesday, June 13 at 7 p.m. to discuss the vision and guiding principles for the park project at 480 S. Hempstead Rd.

Staff will share imagery from parks around the country.

This meeting will be held at the Westerville Community Center in Maple Room C.

Beekeeping for Kids
