More “On The Table” sessions March 27
Editor, The Sun:
If you care about the future of our county, please make plans to attend one of the three “On the Table 2019” sessions on March 27 organized by the Woodford County Community Fund. What better way to envision a bright future for our county than to gather at a table to share a meal, our dreams, and then connect with others to realize those dreams?
Last year, the Huntertown History Project emerged from On the Table discussions and received a Woodford Community Fund grant to preserve the story of Huntertown, an African-American “free town” that existed in Woodford County for over 130 years. We are recording oral histories, archiving documents and photos, and conducting research to tell the story of this once vibrant community. Preserving Huntertown’s past is the first step in developing a future Huntertown Community Interpretive Park – a beautiful, passive green space for all to enjoy.
Thanks to the Woodford County Community Fund and On the Table, our dream to preserve, educate and engage citizens in celebrating our shared history at Huntertown is on the road to becoming a reality. Circle March 27 on your calendar, then RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to take a seat at the table. Bring your dreams and ideas for Woodford County. The possibilities are endless!
