Main Street’s Annual Festival of Trees will take entries for a few more days.
This is a fun way for an organization, a business, a church or individual to make money for a non-profit cause. We’ll take trees of almost any size including table trees, plus wreaths, centerpieces, banners and more.
We don’t guarantee results, but last year every single item was sold in the silent auction.
Setup time for entries is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 11 and 12. The event opens for one day on Nov. 13, then re-opens Nov. 18-20.
The silent auction for trees and other items closes at 7 p.m. on Nov. 20. A light dinner will be served there by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club from 5-7 p.m., accompanied by dulcimer music by Alice Burton.
The Woman’s Club will also have silent auction items available. The event takes place in the Lincoln Museum Community Room.
Come to see the trees and get in the holiday spirit. Come to bid on decorations or other items. Come to enjoy dinner with holiday music. Come to vote for your favorite tree; the winner receives $25.
To participate or for more information, contact Main Street at 358-5913. African-American Genealogical Society presents a case study of a research project that traces the ancestry of an African-American family more than 250 years. Roots of the family in Ohio and Illinois are traced back to Kentucky, where they intersect with a family of free blacks.
The presentation will be Nov. 6, from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, Frankfort. At 1:45 p.m., the Kentucky Technology in Genealogy Users Group offers a free program to support family-history researchers’ use and understanding of technology as it applies to genealogy. The workshop is free, but registration is required before noon on Friday. If requested at time of registration, a light lunch is available for $6.
