Hello SVBA members! We are scheduled to do a planting and beautification day on Sat. May 20th. We will be planting flowers in your pots and, in some, planting an evergreen. Watering will take place on a weekly basis, but feel free to give them some extra water in the hot dry months if you wish. We are planting 5 trees as well north of the interstate thanks to some of our businesses who donated money for this effort. Mt. Pleasant Christian Church in Greenwood is bringing volunteers to our neighborhood to help with the planting, beautification and clean-up. They are also looking to place a branch of their church in our neighborhood!!!! We are very grateful for their willingness to help us and we would like as many members of the SVBA to join in to help and show our appreciation. The planting will start at 9:00am and we will have SVBA members meet at Midwest Computer Accessories at 850 S Meridian St. Hope to see you there!!
Just a friendly reminder our next Stadium Village Business Association monthly meeting is tomorrow, Wednesday, April 19th at Sacred Heart Parish located on 1125 S. Meridian Street.

We’ll have information on upcoming events, projects as well as a special guest speaker, Deb Kunce with Core Planning Strategies.
A special thank you goes out to Susan Hyatt with IUPUI! She sent the information below and attached flyer to share with everyone. A great piece of history!
Members of your group may not know that at one time, a high percentage of the Jewish immigrants who used to live on the southside once worked for a business called Kahn Tailoring. Kahn was located at 800 North Capitol St (corner of Capitol and St. Clair). That building has just been beautifully renovated into apartments. On Friday, April 21 (this coming Friday), the building manager is willing to let anyone who wants to come by to see the building and learn a bit about its history. I have prepared a small exhibit on the history of Kahn Tailoring that will be on display that day. Please let people know that they are welcomed to stop by the building this Friday between 9-5 to see the exhibit and the building. I have attached a flier with the details here: FLIER(2)
