Mulch give-away rescheduled

The Boyle County mulch give away, originally planned for April 22, has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 29 due to the weather. Danville Public Works Department has plenty of compost to give away this year. Bring your truck or trailer and they will fill you up from 7 a.m. until noon on Saturday April 29. The mulch can be picked up off Old Stanford Road behind Grace Baptist Church. This compost comes from leaves picked up in the fall and has been cooking for two years and is a wonderfully rich soil full of nutrients. Good for landscaping, vegetable and flower gardens. For more information, call Ronnie Yates (859) 326-0802.
