  • Fort Boonesborough State Park is planning a special weekend in June dedicated to descendants of the settlers who lived at the fort in the late 1700s.

  • Brian Anderson won the Central Regional Rotary Speech Contest on April 15. He will compete for the Western District Championship on May 16 in Paducah. Anderson is pictured with his mother Kim Anderson and the Bowling Green Rotary Past-President Cheryl Kirby-Stokes.

  • Where you put your eyes is very important. Paul in Colossians 3:1-11 urges us to “Set our mind on things above.” Stop for a few minutes to read this passage of scripture. Paul tells us to look up, look out, look in and look around.

    Colossians, Ephesians and Romans all follow the same pattern. Paul deals with doctrines and then moves to duties. He does not want us to be like the people in Titus 1:16, “They claim they know God, but by their actions they deny Him.”

  • South Fork Homemakers have had an average of 15 members attend our meetings since November.

    In November, Lois Hornback hosted our meeting at her home and provided a wonderful meal for us. We donated money to the Ovarian Cancer Fund and Pennies for Friendship.

    In December, we donated $150 to the County Homemaker Scholarship Fund and $50 to the Legacy Fund for Extension Agents to either continue education or to use for special projects. We enjoyed playing “Dirty Santa” and exchanging Christmas gifts.
