Guest Speaker:  Errol presented about the Louisville Whole Life food buying coop, located at the corner of Shelby & Oak Street. They are open every Friday and Saturday if you want to visit to check it out. Offerings include fresh produce, frozen meat, Sunergos coffee provided at cost, directly from farmers and producers. There is also more information available about the food coop at the following website: https://louisvillewholelife.org/

Treasurer's Report:  Joan passed around paper copies of the latest updated treasurers report, and our professional bookkeeper is making progress getting everything cleaned up and into QuickBooks.

Springfest Update: Dan/Joan. TTNA is in the midst of recruiting sponsors and vendors for Springfest. We have updated our Eventbrite sign-up page for vendor applications and the database connections to keep track of and approve vendors. The list of already-approved vendors who will be attending Springfest is automatically published to the Springfest website.

Vote: The idea was presented to design and print 1000 "Welcome to the Neighborhood" business-sized cards that can be handed out to new residents and businesses. They would direct people to the TTNA website where they can find information about SpringFest and the activities of the Toonerville Trolley Neighborhood Association. The motion to move forward with this project was seconded and the vote passed with all in favor.

Garvin Gate Beautification Project: Bethany Adams from the Garvin Gate neighborhood presented the vision, architectural renderings by Phil Bevins, and progress for the new beautification project at the corner of Garvin Gate and Oak Street. They have already raised $55,000 out of $58,000 total to complete the project by Derby Weekend (if the additional $3,000 funding can be secured). The funds have primarily been raised via the annual Garvin Gate Blues Festival. Any individuals who would like to donate to this project, which will be a major gateway to Old Louisville from Oak Street, can send their donations to:
