Spring is in the air, which means Bellevue Blossoms returns! Bellevue Renaissance is hosting Bellevue Blossoms event on May 16, 2014 from 10 am to 5 pm along Fairfield Avenue. Bellevue Blossoms is a garden inspired event with vendors displaying merchandise, services and events along historic Fairfield Avenue.

Small Business Super Series

Bellevue Renaissance and the Small Business Development Center are pleased to present the first installment in the Bellevue Renaissance Small Business Super Series on Tuesday, April 21 at 7 pm at the Callahan Community Center. You are invited to join them for “Going Back to The Start” to evaluate if your business has the basics in place and sound business fundamentals are being applied in your business. The presenter will focus on what the “end game” looks like for a business, specifically “YOUR” business, and if you are on target to get there. This free workshop focuses on a business owner’s responsibility for the success of their business.

CITY-WIDE YARD SALE

Earth Day is approaching making it a great time to be thinking about the City-Wide Yard Sale on Saturday, June 20th beginning at 8 am. The yard sale is all about the 3 R’s of going green: recycling, reuse, and reduce. In addition to going green this gives you two great options in one day:

  1. Eliminate items you no longer need while making some cool cash by hosting a yard sale.
  2. Find a new treasure or that something that you need by visiting one of the many yard sales in Bellevue.

The permit and fee are waived to encourage residents to participate. All you need to do is contact the city by stopping by or calling 431-8888 or 431-8866 to let us know the address of your yard sale. If you’d prefer to send an email with your address to jody.robinson@bellevueky.org and Jody will make sure you’re on the list. We’re asking you for your address, so we can put you on the map of yard sales. Plus, we want to put how many yard sales in our advertisement to entice shoppers to come visit our beautiful community.
