Excitement and pride over the All Star Game spreads Thursday to Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses. A major community makeover is scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m., thanks to the work of 400 volunteers from the Cincinnati Reds organization, Procter & Gamble and the Cincinnati Zoo. This is the 5th year for the Reds Community Fund neighborhood makeover, but thanks to the All Star Game and Major League Baseball's support, the program was dramatically expanded this year. Improvements will be made to the community center, a large playground at a vacant school and nearby Dyer Baseball fields. Volunteers will make major HVAC and roofing repairs, and improvements to the kitchen, library, game room and computer room at the Community Center.
They’ll also be repainting the surface on the playground, landscaping a community garden, and putting in a new backstop and landscaping at Dyer fields. Copyright 2015 WXIX. All rights reserved.
