It may not have the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood red carpet but Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9) is hosting a special premiere on Thursday, January 21st as a fun event in the community.

“We wanted to thank everyone who helped us on our recent Metro Spotlight,” said Ward- Pugh. “The Clifton Community Garden and Beargrass Greenway at Irish Hill will be in the spotlight for all to see.”

Recently Ward-Pugh worked with Metro TV to focus on two green initiatives in District 9. The completed segment will be shown at the premiere at the Clifton Center beginning at 6:30pm.

The Metro Spotlight feature was created by Niki Lechniak of Metro TV and will begin airing on channel 25, Metro TV during the month of January.

“Though we have invited all the people from the community and City officials that participated in the filming to attend the screening, the event is free and open to the public” said Ward-Pugh. “It should be a fun evening.”
Sondra Powell, owner of Red Hot Roasters, who uses honey from the Clifton Community Garden in some of her drinks will provide coffee at the event. Popcorn, soft drinks and dessert will also be available at the premiere.
