The Nancy Lincoln Inn will be hosting a Craft Fair on June 26-28 and July 2-6, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (ET.) Craft vendors who wish to set up outside the inn may do so free of charge. All crafts must be hand-made in Kentucky, such as quilting, paintings, hand-woven baskets, wood crafts, and candle-making. Items for sale are subject to approval by Eastern National.
The Nancy Lincoln Inn is also looking for individuals to do demonstrations during the Craft Fair. Weavers, wood-workers, musicians, quilters, candlemakers, and other frontier-era demonstrations are welcome.
In 2013, I was asked to be a part of Leadership Larue County. When the class started they guaranteed us that we would learn something about the town we lived in. I’ll be honest, I thought that was impossible since I was born and raised here. Ironically, I ended up learning many things I never knew, but the thing that stuck with me the most was the sense of civic duty that I felt.
A Bi-weekly Dance will be held from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, June 19, at LaRue Senior Citizens Center in Hodgenville. The Prime Time Band will be performing. Admission is $4.00 per person. For more information call Jim Walter at 270-737-5655 or 270-766-4437.

Last month the Sunrise Manor Red Hat Society had a very successful fundraiser to raise money for charities. This summer they will have bake sales and yard sales for five organizations: multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. The bake sales are indoors in the first floor foyer entrance; yard sales are outside in front of the Nursing Home entrance.
Sunrise Manor volunteers are proud to assist in past Red Hat fundraising activities. Hats off to the Red Hat Society!
Thought for the week: Fools take a knife and stab people in the back. The wise take a knife, cut the cord, and free themselves from the fools!
