Kentucky Color - Merry Christmas
Christmas is a good time to join an organization which will help you, your family, and your future: Homeplace on Green River or Kentucky Chestnut Foundation

Kentucky Division of Forestry
American Chestnut logs with the bark completely intact is something probably less than one in tens of millions of folks living today has ever seen. The logs in the attached photo formed the log superstructure of a barn in Marion County and were donated to the Homeplace on Green River.
The Homeplace is developing plans for erecting a barn/museum to preserve these most rare artifacts and will be used to educate present and future generations about not only the contribution American Chestnut made to American culture but about rural culture and subsistence farming as a whole.
This Christmas season as we all feel an innate desire to pass on wholesome memories and constructive cultural traditions and history might just be the time to join up with a couple of organizations that share your desire to "pass it on": Homeplace on Green River and Kentucky Chestnut.org
We all meet, greet and talk about how our children and grandchildren not being grounded and not having an appreciation for the past, but we don't ever seem to do much about it. So, get on board with one or both of these organizations and you will be helping yourself, your family and your future.
"If we would each do a little, we would all do a lot." - BILLY JOE FUDGE
