Garrard County 2010

December 30, 2009

Filled with Hope For the New Year.

Time for one more post this year from all of us at Friends of Paint Lick. Though we straddle two counties on the banks of Paint Lick Creek, the village of Paint Lick officially turns to the courthouse in Lancaster for all legal matters. We’re thankful for Garrard County and are filled with hope for better things to come in 2010. My father would have been 100 in 2010 if he had lived five more years, so you can be sure it will be a special year of celebration for my family. ¬†

So happy New Year to all our friends wherever you are- to Linda in Missouri with Dee. Thank you especially to all who donated items to Friends of Paint Lick and partnered with the volunteers to serve many grateful neighbors and their families in 2009. Looking forward to seeing you in the New Year, you’re welcome at any time in Paint Lick, Garrard County Kentucky.

Christmas comes to the Village

Alex gets his turn to talk to Santa

It was a near perfect day in Paint Lick Saturday, for the annual Christmas in the Village celebration. A light snow provided the visual proof that¬†winter had indeed come and that Santa’s visit could proceed. Lots of kids, first at Santa’s arrival at the fire station and then on to Friend’s of Paint Lick for refreshments, crafts, and more gifts.

A BIG thank you to everyone who made it a great day in the village: our volunteer fire department, the sponsors who donated the raffle prizes, the story-tellers, craft workers, food providers, and of course our volunteers at Friends. The total raised for the Friends budget is at $570.
