The Kenwick Neighborhood Association gathered artists — about 60 adults and children — together recently to create signs to encourage motorists to slow down. “Our neighborhood has a large group of neighborhood kids and families who bike and walk to school, and we want to make sure we give drivers reminders to slow down, and a reminder that they are sharing these roads with some of our most precious lives,” said Jarah Jones, a Kenwick resident and a preschool and elementary art teacher who helped coordinate the effort. The KNA donated $250 for supplies. Neighbors donated wood, paint, brushes and lemonade and treats for the kids who painted the signs on the lawn of Victory Christian Church at 148 Victory Avenue, near the community garden. Neighbors also signed up to “adopt-a-sign,” and about 40 signs were posted throughout the Kenwick and Mentelle neighborhoods.
