Special story

The Adair Heritage Association will hold an open meeting at 6pmCT, Tuesday, January 19, 2010, in the basement of the Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY.

The meeting is planned to reorganize the Adair Heritage Association. Ellen Zornes, Chair, and George Kolbenschlag, secretary of the Courthouse Preservation Funding Committee, organizers of Tuesday's reorganization, said that the AHA will bring strength to the preservation efforts. "The dues are minimal," Ms. Zornes said, urging all interested in heritage to attend and become a part of the preservation effort.

The meeting should be relatively short, Mr. Kolbenschlag added. A board of directors and officers will be chosen.

Membership dues are already set at $5.00 per person or $8.00 per family. The Adair Heritage Association is already a 501(c)(3) organization and therefore tax exempt for any donations, Mr. Kolbenschlag said.

"Any heritage association is a vital organization in a community," he said. "The purpose of the Adair Heritage Association will be the preservation of buildings and heritage. Preservation is about saving the individuality of our communities. Preservation has a positive impact on economic and tourism development," and, Ms. Zornes said, "Heritage means thinking about future generations."

They said the Adair Heritage Association will act as a support system for the courthouse fund raising committee to preserve the Adair County Court House. "Having a strong heritage membership will enhance our ability to generate grant funds," Ms. Zornes said.
