Events

  • Truth or Consequences

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— Every student learns differently but more often than not, there isn’t time to try multiple ways to get one lesson across. When it comes to drug prevention, though, Mount Washington thinks it’s worth the work.

    In “Truth and Consequences: The Choice is Yours” eighth graders from both Mount Washington and Eastside Middle schools were given the unique opportunity to “live through” bad decisions like hiding drugs in their lockers or covering for a sibling who may be using.

  • Another salute to those who served

     Each Sunday during the Memorial Day weekend, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 454 hosts a special service in Highland Memory Gardens in Mount Washington.

    This year’s celebration was the 26th.

    William (Bill) Roby was the keynote speaker this year.

    A large crowd came out to honor those who have fought for this country.

  • County fair opens Monday with new stuff

      CLERMONT - For many Bullitt Countains, the fair feels like home. 

    This year, the old house will see some renovations, while blending in some old with some new.

    The Bullitt County Fair will take place June 11-16 at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    Fair Board president Jimmy Anderson said patrons will notice most of the renovation work, thanks to a matching grant from the Kentucky State Fair Board.

  • Hebron Presbyterian to celebrate 160th anniversary this weekend

     In 1858, before the Civil War, but just after the railroad had made its way to Shepherdsville and beyond, the Presbyterian families living in the area elected to join together and form a new church.

    Seeking a name for their new congregation, they turned to the Bible and selected Hebron, both because that was where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had dwelt, and perhaps more importantly, because Hebron means society, friendship, and union.

  • Don’t let graduation cause shattered dreams

     HEBRON ESTATES - Each year the North Bullitt High School Youth Services Center presents its “Day of Shattered Dreams” event to warn senior students about the dangers of impaired driving prior to their prom.

    This year’s event theme was Eagles Soaring Purpose: Death Defying Decisions.

    The event included a fatal wreck scene, with students and their family members portraying an accident caused by drunk driving.

  • Memorial Day Tributes

     Traditional Memorial Day observances were held at the Bullitt County Courthouse and at the Lebanon Junction Post Office. 

    In Shepherdsville, the American Legion Post organized the service.

    In Lebanon Junction, the VFW Post once again organized the observance. Bob DeVore was one of the many speakers at the LJ service.

  • HAT MAKING

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— Seniors at Elmcroft Senior Living got in the Derby spirit by creating their own Churchill Downs-worthy fascinators and hats.

    Earlier in the week, volunteers from J&J Ceramics in Mount Washington helped to paint their own ceramic racehorses, which were displayed for other residents and visitors to see. The week ended with a Derby viewing party where the fascinators were shown off to all who joined.

  • AARP DERBY

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—Seniors gathered at the monthly AARP meeting in Mount Washington to celebrate Derby and Mothers Day. Women were encouraged to wear their best hats and a bundle of roses were presented to the judges’ favorite. A special singer performed a melody of classic love songs while Mike Mann accompanied him on piano.

    The Mount Washington AARP Chapter 4613 meets on the first Thursday of every month at noon at the Ralph Lutes Senior Center, located at 300 Delania Drive next to Busy Lady Quilts.

  • LIVING HISTORY

     A special exhibit filled the gym of Old Mill Elementary recently.

    Visitors from throughout the city walked in to find 79 historical statues placed in multiple rows. The statues stood quiet until the guest stepped on their button on the floor, activating the figure to come alive and share a monologue about his or her life.
