Sandra ClarkKnox Notes

  • The fountains at both World’s Fair Park and Krutch Park have reopened after closures to repair water leaks. In mid-May, the World’s Fair Park water feature was losing 5,000 gallons of water an hour. Because the fountains consist of an estimated 280 pipes, an outside contractor was hired to locate the leak and begin repairs. The repairs at Krutch Park were repaired by city crews. The city-sponsored fountains are open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the summer.
  • Neighborhood Whiffle Ball Tournament begins Saturday, June 10, at 9 a.m. in Victor Ashe Park, 4901 Bradshaw Road. The tournament will feature seven teams: Burlington (in red), Forest Heights (in royal blue), Island Home (in navy), Oakwood Lincoln Park (in black), Westwood (in light blue), West Hills (in orange) and Timbercrest (in green).
  • Nkechi Ajanaku memorial services will be held 3-6 p.m. Saturday, June 10, at Haley Heritage Square, 1600 Dandridge Avenue. Ms. Ajanaku, 60, oversaw African American Appalachian Arts Inc., which presents Kuumba every June.
