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.

Celebrating Christmas early

December 3, 2010

Tomorrow is Christmas In The Village at Paint Lick

There are still lots of Raffle tickets available. The raffle along with all the gifts for the children, is a BIG part of tomorrows festivities. The Raffle prizes were on display earlier at the Oktober Fest. Thanks to our generous sponsors, we have some great items that will be given away. The proceeds from the sale of the raffle tickets goes into the general operating fund here at Friends, which helps us all year.

Let me just add a note about one of the most recent prizes that was added this year thanks to the members of The Paint Lick Sportsman’s Club.

A one year membership will be raffled tomorrow which represents a valuable gift not only in monetary terms, but in terms of affording the winner the opportunity to be a part of the 2011 activities of one of the few Paint Lick social clubs dedicated to the whole community. Do yourself (and us) a favor and put some of your raffle tickets into this. Be sure to see previous posts for time and info about tomorrow.

Fall Festival ’09 was great fun!

October 13, 2009

Cold and Cloudy didn’t dampen our spirits.

There was a lot going on this year and something for everyone: booths of flowers, paintings, food, and crafts. Then there was lively music from a number of artists, followed by the auction and “all-you-can-eat” catfish dinner. We have some pictures that we’ll go ahead and get up and the write the stories as we

go along with the help of your comments.

Permanent Recycling has come to Paint Lick

October 6, 2009

Now There is No Excuse!

On September 29th, we had a special dedication of the permanent recycling center in Paint Lick. I had hopes that someone who was actually present and had some pictures would write this, but alas, no one has come forward.

The center is located beside the Fire Station-very easy to access- I went by this morning to deposit my bag of plastics. We are thankful to the folks at First Southern National Bank for allowing the temporary placement of the recycling containers beside the bank. But the permanent location will now serve everyone with larger bens and easy access.

At Friends of Paint Lick we are all about recycling and we celebrate with the community this latest effort to keep Garrard County beautiful. Please participate in recycling your glass, cans, paper, and plastics.  Our environment is a sacred trust that we have received from previous generations, and one day we must pass on the treasure.recycling

For more information on the recycling effort, be sure to visit the Beautify Garrard County site. Karla Sefcak and her team are doing a tremendous job in getting us all informed and involved in doing what we can.

Thanks to all for the festivities including the Sportsman”s Club, those that placed the bins, and to all who attended. A special thanks to Chris Thomason for coordinating this public service .

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.
