Sportsman’s Club meeting at Friends

February 22, 2011

Friend’s have graciously made their building available to a sister service organization in the Village, the Paint Lick Sportsman’s Club. Until warmer weather permits the club’s monthly meetings to meet at the shelter on the creek bank, the meetings are being held at Friends.

The February 15th meeting included election of new officers for 2011 and tentative plans for the annual Fish Fry earlier in the year. We look forward to partnering with them in all the festivals of  year, beginning with the annual yard sale. The officers are-

John Paul Todd, President; Chester Satterfield, Vice President; Loretta Adams, Secretary; and Deborah Messenger, Treasurer.

Board members-at-large are Jean Smithand Patti Aldridge.

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15th, at 6:30. Visitors and prospective members are welcome.

The village of Paint Lick has two main festivals a year: VillageFest in the fall and Christmas in the Village in early December. During the Fall festival, previously held on Main Street with booths, displays, animals, working craftsmen, other activities as well as food, there are lots of opportunities for local artists to display and sell their products. Throughout the day, tickets can be purchased for drawings on items donated by local businesses and special baskets made especially for the festival. The drawing, always an exciting time with lots of catcalls and applause, takes place near the end of the festival and winners do not need to be present to get their prize. Music is offered by a variety of local talent and usually there’s an open mike at some point in the day.

Several years ago, the activities moved to the Sportman’s Club grounds which provides plenty of space and secure walking while some booths continue on Main Street. Our wonderful restaurant usually provided an early country breakfast and wonderful lunch menu which will really be missed this year due to the fire.

Activities should be up and running by 10 AM. There will be no rental fee this year for booths. We are planning for entertainment all day. There will be fun activities for children again this year.

Friends of Paint Lick volunteers and board members will be selling soup beans, cornbread, desserts and soft drinks inside the Sportman’s Club where you can also see all the items for the auction and buy tickets and place them in the ticket container of the item “you must have”.

The Paint Lick Sportsman’s Club will have their annual Fish Fry from 4:00 until 5:30. Tickets for the fish fry will be for sale in advance ($5.00) at First Southern National Bank and Copperhead Consultants in Paint Lick. Tickets will be $6.50 at the door. The menu includes all-you-eat fried perch, hush puppies, a side, PLSC’s famous slaw, dessert and a drink.

So, come early and wear yourself out looking, walking, talking and buying (maybe do some haggling over prices) and stay for an early supper at the fish fry. Either way you’ll have a fun day.
