The Ashland Park Neighborhood Association (APNA) Picnic has been scheduled for Sunday, September 27 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm at Harvey park at the intersection of Fincastle and Desha Road.

As usual the annual meeting will be a business meeting with election of street representatives. This year we will elect one representative from each of the the following street combinations: South Ashland Park/Central Avenue (700 block), Hanover Avenue/Ghent Road, and Desha Road/Fincastle Road (900-1000 block) for a total of three (3) representatives. The total Board is made of of four representatives from each street combination for 12 members plus a representative from Hanover Towers Condominiums.   Representatives serve four years and are eligible for re-election. Those elected will officially take office January 1, 2016 but will be encouraged to attend the September, October, and November/December meetings for information purposes. The Board usually meets the last Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. rotating meetings in members homes.

The representatives from each street combination make up a nomination committee to submit names for nomination for their street. In addition any person who is a resident of any Association street may submit their name for nomination or may be submitted by another resident with their permission. The nomination shall include, the name, address, phone number, email address, and a resume of the person nominated with any supporting documentation. This should be sent to the President of APNA, Bob Sessum, 101 South Hanover Avenue, Suite 6 L, Lexington, Kentucky 40502 or email to

In addition to the business session, there will be a gathering of adults and children for a picnic with the APNA supplying the entree composed of hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs and paper products and beer and wine and non-alcoholic beverages (water and soft drinks). Each person or family is asked to bring a side dish and their own chairs.

It was a grand time to be had by all last year and we hope to see more of you this year. Later there will be a time to RSVP so we will know how many are planning to attend which is very helpful. But for now, mark your calendars and reserve the date for a neighborhood gathering.
