Over 60 Kao employees joined the Council on Friday, September 12 at Caldwell Playground for a day of volunteer work. Everyone did such a great job and accomplished so much work, especially in the time frame! Thank you so much, Kao volunteers! Kao is also a new business member of the Council.
The Council held its first ever Mill Creek Watershed Business Roundtable on Tuesday, September 9, 2014. The audience consisted of over 50 representatives from watershed businesses and communities. The Council sincerely thanks our panelists for participating in this event and raising some great ideas. Let's keep the conversation going! We are planning a Business Charrette for this winter.
The Council welcomed 31 cyclists for the inaugural Historic Mill Creek Bike Ride on Saturday, August 30. The ride was a 15-mile loop that began and ended in Northside. We peddled all the way to the Mill Creek Barrier Dam, stopping at other unique and historic spots along the way. Thank you to all who were able to join us. A special thanks to Queen City Bike for helping us plan and lead the ride, and to Boswell Alley for hosting us for lunch!
