Last week, I attended the Kentucky Bar Association Convention in downtown Louisville at the Convention Center.
On Wednesday, May 11, as I made my way to the Convention Center, I had the privilege of running into George and Brittany who were diligently working to keep the great city of Louisville pristine!
George and Brittany were working hard and I appreciate their commitment to keeping downtown Louisville beautiful. They are a delight and I wanted you to know!
Keep up the good work!

Best, Alison L. G.
