Join your neighbors on Monday, May 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to help clear up debris and overgrown vegetation from the sidewalk leading to the Nickel Bridge, which is impeding the accessibility of the sidewalk for walkers and bikers in our community. There’ll be a small supply of gloves, shovels, and brooms, but please bring some if you can. Meet at the sidewalk on the south side of the Nickel Bridge any time after 5: 30 p.m. The event is sponsored by Southsiders for Biking and Walking. Questions? contact Jeanne Minnix.

Bladder cancer is the fifth most diagnosed cancer, and when Rick Bulifant, president of HF Bulifant & Sons was diagnosed three years ago, he knew very little about it. Now he has the opportunity to raise awareness and educate people about bladder cancer, its symptoms, and treatment.
“May is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month, and I am taking action in my community to represent the 500,000 people living with bladder cancer in the United States. I’m walking for the 75,000 people that will be diagnosed with bladder cancer this year alone. And I’m taking steps to honor the 15,000 who will not survive their bladder cancer journey this year. I’m walking because bladder cancer forever changed my life ,” says Rick.
