A year after the old Kroger store property at Kennedy and Montgomery was transformed into the Kennedy Heights Cultural Campus, there is more excitement happening at the corner. The nondescript exterior will be brought to life with public art!
Kennedy Heights Arts Center is partnering with ArtWorks to create a mural on the façade of the Center’sLindner Annex at the campus. Artist Casey Riordan Millard, herself a Kennedy Heights resident, designed the mural with input from a committee of local residents. Mostly known for her “Shark Girl” sculptures, drawings, paintings, and publications, Millard’s work has drawn the admiration of a growing national audience. The mural will be painted this summer by a team of professional artists and young adult art apprentices.
You can be a part of the project, too! Everyone is invited to Community Day at the mural on Saturday, July 16 from 11am to 2pm. Casey and the ArtWorks team will lead participants in making artwork inspired by the mural. These works by community members will come together in an installation in the Annex’s lobby. Adults and youth of all ages are invited to participate.
This vibrant mural will not only be a treasured asset for Kennedy Heights, but it will also attract visitors from throughout the region. It will inspire everyone to see the beauty of our community!

If the measure of a society is how it cares for those most in need, The Caring Place is one way Kennedy Heights achieves a high standard. And at the heart of our community ministry are the dedicated volunteers who find joy in their service.
Jo Ann Ruff, a member of Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church, has volunteered there for over 25 years. She is the intake person who greets guests and assesses their needs. Jo Ann began by volunteering as a tribute to her friend who died and has stayed for all these years. “It’s a good way to get to know people and form personal friendships. People share their health and family problems. I find joy in listening and in the thank yous from the clients.” Stop in and visit 92 on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Jo Ann will be happy to see you.
Because supplies are limited, clients can only come once a month. Since some items can’t be purchased with food stamps, there is an ongoing need for personal care items (soap, shampoo & conditioner, deodorant, lotion, toothpaste, toilet paper), household cleaning products (dish liquid, laundry detergent, multipurpose cleaner, bleach) and grocery bags. Can you find donors or businesses that will contribute these items to supplement your donation?
For all who know and love Ceal Bellman, her surgery was successful and she is moving much more easily. She thanks everyone for their prayers.
