If you’ve noticed the daffodils blooming in previous springs at the corner of State Roads 37 and 32 in front of the Noblesville sign, those are the efforts of committed volunteers of Keep Noblesville Beautiful (KNB), an organization working to improve the community through educational and community action programs.

KNB’s daffodil initiative, which began in the Fall of 2009 and is sponsored by Kroger, is a welcome springtime sight in Noblesville. The ongoing project will eventually encompass gateways to the city as well as major thoroughfares. More daffodil plantings should be visible this Spring at the gateway at Hamilton Town Center on East 146th St.

Keep Noblesville Beautiful has several upcoming events, starting with the Highway 37 Cleanup on Saturday, April 16. The Cleanup will focus on the section of Highway 37 from State Road 32 up to 191st St.

On Friday April 29, KNB will be celebrating Arbor Day on the Southeast side of the Courthouse Square by giving away 400 small Red Oak trees and raffling a large tree, starting at 10 A.M. Planting and care instructions will be included with each tree, and Master Gardeners and Tree Stewards will be on hand to answer questions.

The annual Spring Blitz will take place May 21st in the Lincoln Circle area of town, which encompasses 10th Street to 16th Street in the general area of the Middle School. The Blitz is an effort to focus on one particular area and provide help for residents by doing whatever landscaping or upkeep work that needs to be done.

Volunteers or Groups are welcome to help with the Highway 37 Cleanup or the Spring Blitz. Keep Noblesville Beautiful is also growing its membership. Dues are $20 annually for an individual or $25 for a family.
