It's A Classical Tailgate Party

You are invited to the BHA's first event of the 2019 winter season on “Superbowl” Sunday, February 3rd at 4:30 pm with a concert at 5:00 pm at the Park Terrace Condominiums, 1611 Spring Dr., 40205. Beverages and Hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Anne Richardson, cellist from Louisville and presently at the Julliard School in NY City will be our guest soloist. This is Anne's second performance for our neighborhood "Soup and Salad” events having played some seven years ago at Park Terrace as a child.

Anne has been featured twice on NPR's From The Top. More recently Anne made her Lincoln Center Debut, soloing with the Juilliard Orchestra. Anne has won many competitions including the Julliard String Competition and the Louisville Orchestra competition at the young age of 10.

Her most recent appearance as a soloist with the Louisville Orchestra was in October for the Music Without Borders series. Anne has returned to Louisville this week as a Gheens Artist in Residence, sponsored by the Kentucky Center for the Arts. During the week she will perform in many venues including music in schools, music in healing and music with dance. The highlight of the week will be Wednesday evening February 6th in Whitney Hall at 6:30 pm for a "free" concert with the Louisville Orchestra where she will perform “Variations on a Rococo Theme” by Tchaikovsky.

We are delighted that Anne will perform Sunday evening, February 3rd for the BHA's “tailgate” party to begin her week in Louisville. We will be treated to a preview performance of the Tchaikovsky "Variations”.

2018 Year in Review

2018 was a great year for the Bonnycastle Homestead Association!
We continued with our Soup and Salad events, and added a little outdoor variety with a beer tasting and a butterfly garden.  We enjoyed participating in the usual neighborhood happenings, like Bardstown Road Aglow and Sherby.  We continued with our community beautification and reforestation, first with a vine-cutting service, then this October with a renewal of our tree planting.  We got 65 trees in the ground this year!  Enjoy some of the pictures of BHA in action.


We had great tree planting on Saturday!  52 new trees in the ground in our neighborhood. 

Thanks to all the homeowners who are contributing to keeping Bonnycastle green and thanks to all the volunteers who gave up a Saturday morning to help us plant.  Pictures will be coming soon.  We can't wait for next year!

To all the homeowners who got a new tree, below is some information on tree care.  Please let us know if you have any questions!

Vine Removal

On 16 June, BHA sent teams of volunteers out into the neighborhood to help homeowners remove ivy growing up large trees, choking them and compromising their health.  We couldn't be happier with the results and are so thankful for all our participants!

Here is a statement from a satisfied resident:  Thank you all so much for removing the ivy from the evergreen on our condo’s property!  Your volunteers did a wonderful job, and we really appreciate everyone’s efforts.  Thank you for working to keep the Bonnycastle neighborhood beautiful!
