IMG951775Monticello Ongoing Revitalization Effort (M.O.R.E.) Blueprint Community Kickoff Ice Cream Social!

Starting at the Margaret McCoy Community Garden attendees followed “The Right Path” trail using their “Passport” as their guide. From the Community Garden, attendees wound their way over to the Kelly Miller Community Center where participants had the opportunity to enjoy ice cream sundaes, which were catered by Espresso Yourself of Grafton.

Stops included on The Right Path were the Margaret McCoy Community Garden, made possible through the assistance of the Harrison County Family Resource Network; two (2) affordable housing structures, which were made possible by the WV Housing Development Fund grant received by Mountain Opportunities Corp.; the forty one (41) sidewalk replacements that were made possible by the City of Clarksburg; the replaced playground equipment and restored basketball court, provided by a partnership between the Clarksburg City Parks and Recreation and M.O.R.E.;  the Neighborhood Clean –Up Days, a partnership with the City of Clarksburg, and the Kelly Miller Community Center which is being made possible through many partnerships including the West Virginia Black Heritage Festival.

The Right Path included the many successes of M.O.R.E. thus far. Upon arriving at the Center, guests had the opportunity to fill out comment and suggestion cards. This gave attendees and community members the opportunity to express what else they would like to see improved in their neighborhood, and the many projects they’d like to see the effort go towards.

Approximately 40 members of surrounding communities attended the Community Kickoff, including Ryan Kennedy, Mayor of Clarksburg. The Mayor joined fellow attendees on the Right Path, and spoke with the neighborhood’s citizens and members of M.O.R.E. to express his support in their efforts to revitalize their neighborhood.

The creation of New Beginnings Book Club was also announced during the kickoff. The New Beginnings Book Club will begin on August 1st from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. on the 3rd floor of the Kelly Miller Community Center. Also located in the Kelly Miller Community Center is Clarksburg Hung Gar. Clarksburg Hung Gar is located on the 1st floor and are now accepting new students who are interest in learning the styles of Kung Fu. Classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
