A little water, biodegradable cleaning solution and elbow grease can go a long way.
And by looking at the success of the Friends of Grove Hill Cemetery's first Restoration and Preservation Workshop, the 150-year-old cemetery is in for a big lift.
On June 24, the group had Ann Johnson with the Kentucky Historical Society give a morning workshop and used that information, along with the proper tools provided by Johnson, in a restoration project at the cemetery.
Despite a drizzly, rainy and grim morning, the skies cleared up and the weather heated up enough for community members to enjoy fireworks, snow cones and cotton candy for the annual Independence Day celebration at Lake Shelby on Monday night. The crowd was small when the gates opened, but as the evening went on and the shadows got longer, more and more people arrived to see what everyone wants to see on the Fourth of July — fireworks. They also enjoyed dancing and listening to the musical numbers of Leo Knight and the Moonlighters as they enjoyed the night’s festivities.
As the Shelby County Fair’s run started to come to an end last weekend, the midway gave way to the barns as the place to be.
The Shelby County Fair Horse Show kicked off on Wednesday, finishing Saturday night, and the rodeo rode back into town for Friday and Saturday shows, providing some equine fun to go with funnel cakes, lemonades and Tilt-a-whirls.
Thousands showed up to see the cowboys’ 8 second efforts, and more lined the ring of the horse show to see 3- and 5-gaited Saddlebreds strut their stuff.
