A group of seamstresses who meet during the monthly Open Sew Day at the LaRue County Extension Office have given themselves the name “Nifty Needles.” The group made 50 fabric chair back covers with storage pockets for the students in preschool classes. This gave each classroom more storage space for each student. Front from left, Carrie Lee Kidd, Peggy Edwards, Rebekah Okeson. Others are Martha Childress, Mae Burden, Master Clothing Volunteer Rosa Smith, Judy Bridge, Phyllis Miles, Betty Downey and Rose Cottrell.
The LaRue County High School gym was dedicated in 1959. Superintendent Sam Sanders shared these photos of the dedication ceremony and other views of the school. He received the photos from Mickey Miller, son of former School Board Chairman Lee Miller.
The Hosparus Thrift Shoppe recently hosted a Back to School Fashion Show at its Helmwood Plaza location. A dozen models ranging in age from 6 to 17 sported the latest styles. With name brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Guess, these threads were cool enough for the most discerning young wardrobe.
Moira Taylor, Thrift Shoppe manager, says the Fashion Show boosted sales to more than $700 for the day.
“We were thrilled with the turnout, donations and sales that day. Our models had a great time as well.”
