TO PARENTS WITH CHILDREN
WHO ATTEND GURNEY SCHOOL

Gurney School has sent out a notice to parent with children who attend the school.
The letter reads as follows:

Gurney Parents,
We have been informed that from April 28 thru May 4 Bell Road will be closed from the Gurney driveway EAST to Maple Springs Drive. There will be a detour provided for traffic circulation and we do not expect it to cause too much of a delay to our bus routes. For one week prior to this closure and for one week after this closure, that area will function as single lane traffic so plan on delays during that time. For those of you that drop off or pick up your child, this may be a period of time that riding the bus would be more beneficial in order to decrease the congestion and keep us all on our schedules.

Thank you,
Dr. Rachel Jones, Principal
Gurney Elementary

Letter



NO PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC ON BELL ROAD


South Russell Village and the Bell Road Improvement Contractor are asking residents to avoid using Bell Road as a “Pedestrian Route”.


During the construction phase of the installation of the new storm sewers on Bell Road, work will continue on one side of the roadway and traffic will be maintained on the other.
Materials, the operation of heavy equipment and trucks and general vehicle traffic will be in the area leaving no room for pedestrian traffic. Even during non-working hours and weekends, limited space will be available for pedestrian traffic. Pedestrians should avoid the area if at all possible. You will have plenty of time to walk and ride in a much safer situation once the project is completed.

South Russell ~ Show Your Colors

Each year since 1989, a group of volunteer residents from the Village of South Russell have proudly decorated the village in the red, white and blue.

We need your help to continue this grand tradition.

Flags are flown from the utility poles on Bell Road,East Washington Street and Chillicothe Road.

The first season is early summer when flags are raised for the Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day holidays. Flags are then removed and raised in the last week in August for the Labor Day holiday. They are stored till late fall and raised for Election Day and Veteran's Day. After November 11th the flags are removed, as weather permits, for winter storage.

The flags have flown on other occasions and special situations.

Extreme weather conditions take a toll on the flags and the poles.

Flags, poles and hardware are purchased through private donations of the village residents and other patriotic Americans.
A flag and hardware costs $20.00.

Show your pride in this great country by purchasing a flag
to be flown in the village.

Please send donations to:
S.R.- Show Your Colors
South Russell Village Hall
5205 Chillicothe Road
South Russell, Ohio 44022

Your help is also needed by volunteering to proudly raise the flags for the summer, August 25th through the 30th, and fall,October 21st - 29th.

Volunteering is a great way to meet other patriotic neighbors.

Please contact the chairman,
Pete Moissis at 440.823.2199 if you can help.
