It's Happening



The Farmers' Market has three more weeks! Be on the lookout for these wonderful vendors who have spent the past several months in cold, wet, hot, dry, and now nearly perfect weather! Wednesday 3-7 in the Historic Midway District!

Mark Docter from Doc's Dressings can be contacted at doc@docsdressings.com if you need dipping oils, dressings, etc. If you're like me, those bottles of dipping oil just go too quickly!
Sharon and Chuck Wright have greens, tomatoes, some peppers, maybe squash, some pork, beef steaks, cheese and eggs. You can contact Sharon at sharona.wright@insightbb.com. She will be delivering all winter long on Wednesday evenings from 5-6 pm.

If you haven't had a chance to drive past the Amphitheater lately, please do so! Our Public Works Department has worked so hard to bring beauty to the facility. The thick, green sod has made a powerful change. The hillside in front of the museum is being transformed through clearing of undergrowth, excavation, and planting of trees. Many thanks also to the Fort Thomas Forrest Conservancy and to Erik Geiman (and family!) for all the landscaping work they are volunteering.

The USO Dance and Salute to Veterans are coming to us in November--thanks to the Fort Thomas Museum committee. Linda and Lonnie Slone are chairpersons for the dance. If you need information, our Board consists of Gloria Sisk, Jerry and Bonnie Jansen, Jim and Toy Hall, Ross Brown, Bud Cross, Chuck Taylor, Linda Slone, and Linda Rankin.As always, our thoughts are on our current soldiers as well as our veterans. I am attaching a brochure for a very special event that goes along with our support.

So many thanks to all who have donated funds for the USO Dance! The churches have been especially generous, and individuals have been donating as well. We are grateful and look forward to making this another significant evening for our veterans. If you would like to help serve the meal on November 4, please notify me at dbuckley@ftthomas.org. Last year we had 25 volunteers who took the plates of food to each soldier. It showed incredible generosity. If you would like to attend the dance, you may get your tickets through Linda Slone at the Bank of Kentucky (441-3302). The cost is $25 per person. Veterans are only $10. The Swingtime Big Band will again bring the music. Sarelli's will be providing a delicious meal. Cake Towne will provide the desserts.
