  • Quilt contest is for kids

    The Marion County Extension Homemakers Association in conjunction with the Kentucky Bluegrass Music kickoff are sponsoring a Creative Kentucky Quilt Block Contest - for kids.
    The quilt block must be created by the youth entering the contest and on flat paper; no 3D designs (use markers, crayons, paint, glue/tape colored papers, etc).
    Make the block no larger than 8.5-inch by 8.5-inch paper (it can be smaller, but must be a square); use the entire paper.

  • Fred’s favorite Christmas poem

    Every couple of years I like to revisit my father’s favorite Christmas poem inspired by Clement Moore’s famous work ‘Night Before Christmas’.  The writer is unknown but he or she certainly was a gardener; and you may even get some last minute gift ideas from its verse.
