Sweet Sweats For Love Results in Over 1,200 Pieces of Clothing Donated!

Sweats_Jan16The Sweet Sweats for Love clothing campaign was a success! From January 1st through February 14, 2018, all Sibcy Cline branch offices collected new sweat clothes for area foster children. Clothing poured into the offices and the result was the donation of over 1,200 sweat shirts and pants.

This is the fourth year Sibcy Cline Realtors has partnered with Julie Phillippi-Whitney of Phillippi-Whitney Communications to provide needed items for area foster children.

The sweatpants and sweatshirts were given to Hamilton County Job & Family Services, who then distributed to foster children throughout the tristate region. Clothing was also donated to the Dayton Artemis Center, a Domestic Violence Resource Agency that serves Montgomery and Greene counties.

Florence, Kentucky – A Great Place to Live and Call Home!

Florence_YAllFlorence, Kentucky was first called “Crossroads” since it was the location where roads from Burlington and Union merged at what is now U.S. 25.  In the early 1800s, the area became known as Maddentown (named after local attorney Thomas Madden.) After he moved away the area switched names once more to Connersville (named after settler Jacob Conner.) And, finally – Florence became the city’s name. It is assumed to be named after Florence, Italy – but the origin is not clear.

Florence, Y’All
The icon for the city is its water tower. When the Florence Mall was under construction, its developers negotiated with the city about its creation. In 1974, the water tower said: Florence Mall even though the mall was not yet constructed. Due to legal issues over the size of this large advertisement, the Kentucky Bureau of Highways informed the city that the tower sign was too tall per state law. First a tarp was considered to be placed over the word “Mall” – which would have been expensive for a short-term need. Instead, a painting company was hired to change the “m” into a ”y” with this cost-effective solution. Voila – the slogan was born and has remained.

Florence Y’All App
The city has its own free app making it convenient for residents to report problems and engage with city services.

  • South Fork Park – With a nautical theme, this park is the largest Florence park. Picnic shelter, playground, volleyball and basketball courts, bike path, log dam habitat, meadow and wooded areas and earthen sculptures for play.
  • Stringtown Park – This park has a Camelot theme. Enjoy a playground, basketball  and volleyball court, four fitness stations, paved trail and picnic shelter.
  • Niblack Memorial Park – This park is formerly the old city building that is now the home for the Florence Senior Activity Center.
  • Walnut Creek Park – This 2.5 acre park is located in the Walnut Creek subdivision and has a ball field and play area.

The active city of Florence has numerous annual events including a Memorial Day Parade and Independence Day celebration. There are also many local events hosted at the city parks such as movie nights and sports camps.
