The Belle gets a little help from friends

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Home Depot needs a little help from friends to get the Belle of Louisville ready for the 2013 season of cruising. Home Depot will be hosting a volunteer and renovation day for the Belle of Louisville on March 21.

The Home Depot will provide 40-60 volunteers and a substantial amount of supplies to help make cosmetic repairs onboard the Belle. The donations will include new flooring for the wheel house, first aid room, and men's restroom, as well as assorted light fixtures, paint, and plants for outside planters. There will be volunteers from all the local stores for a day of helping the great Belle of Louisville.  

The repairs and improvements are in preparation for the Belle's cruising season which begins in May, as well as for her 100th birthday celebration which will take place in October of 2014.
