We have had a very busy and productive spring in the City of Lawrenceburg. I want to send a special thank you to everyone, including residents, who helped make the 2nd annual Whiskey City Regatta a huge success. We built from what we learned last year, which led to doubling this year's attendance. By bringing more folks into our beautiful city we can spotlight everything our community has to offer. I received several compliments about our city and the friendliness of our community, which is a direct reflection of all of you, our community's greatest asset.
Speaking of beautifying the city, we had our first annual Groom and Bloom event to get things weeded and planted along the core of downtown. Citizens and community organizations partnered to complete the work in time for the local teenage workers enrolled in the Summer Help Program to take over and maintain. Many of you have seen these workers out mulching and watering, which is just one of the many tasks we have lined up for them to complete during this annual summer program. We hope you enjoy the look and feel of the downtown area as you visit our retail shops and restaurants, Music on the River, and Party in the Street.
Ground breaking for the Southeastern Indiana Community Garden was also recently held and involves many partnerships. This initiative allows the community to work together to promote nutritional and ecological awareness by learning how to grow and maintain food, and the City is proud to host the garden site.
Also new to both Lawrenceburg and Aurora, is the River City Bike Share Program, which allows folks to take advantage of the Dearborn Trail that connects the two cities. This partnership has brought several new bicycles to both cities for residents and visitors to rent, enjoy, and return at their convenience, and has been very popular in a short amount of time.
Finally, the great partnership between the City and Lawrenceburg Municipal Utilities has resulted in a number of benefits over the years. Through the support of City Council and the Utility Service Board, LMU and the City of Lawrenceburg has been able to launch free Wi-Fi in the core of the downtown area. Stay tuned for several exciting updates as this and other types of technologically progressive services expand and evolve. All of these efforts support the vision for the City of Lawrenceburg that we share, moving forward with the times, while maintaining our small-town charm. Thank you for making up the most important part of the City, which is the people.
Mayor of Lawrenceburg
