    As daylight hours grow longer, so do our spring and summer “to do” lists.  Outdoor activities and adventures are at the top of that list for many Kentucky families.  4-H Summer Camp is an ideal place to explore the great outdoors, make new friends, and participate in fun group activities.   

  • Nancy Miles has a suggestion for anyone who is interested in old barns, landscapes or quilting. On the next nice sunny day, consider traveling Marion County’s barn quilt trail.
    “I’ve lived here all my life, and I’ve been to ends of the county that I didn’t even know existed,” she said.
    Miles helped paint some of the 8-foot-by-8-foot patches herself, but she’s been impressed with the variety of the patterns around the county.
    And she thinks you’ll be impressed, too.
