Hodgenville Water Works was one of 34 surface water treatment plants in the state that was recently recognized by the Kentucky Energy and Education Cabinet for their superior performance for meeting the goals of Kentucky’s Area-Wide Optimization Program.
The purpose of AWOP is to encourage water treatment plants and distributors of drinking water to surpass state and federal goals and standards. Kentucky is one of 19 states that participate in AWOP initiatives.
Where’s Waldo? In Hodgenville, of course. The famous children’s book character in the stripped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five local businesses throughout our community this July.
Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in the community, including the partners of The Sweet Shop, Laha’s Red Castle, Lincoln Museum and many more.
Rex Thompson is in Hardin Memorial Hospital. He is the husband to Mildred Dorsey-Thompson. Reverend Wilkinson was the guest speaker at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home for their morning worship service. Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Van Newton in the passing of his brother, Ricardo Newton of Germany and to Reverend DeWayne Rogers, the former pastor at Lane Lincoln.
Members and friends traveled to Louisville waterfront Park to serve the homeless. Hats off to lane Lincoln. This is a great project to help those who are less fortunate than you and me.
