Historical Quest: The experience of the W.A.T.C.H group

The captions on the accompanying photos are different from other ColumbiaMagazine.com cutlines: They're meant be puzzles. They're only clues. In many cases, they are esoteric. One needs to know a lot of Columbia history, know a lot of Adair County people, know the photographer's biography and followed her work, traced her family tree to catch every nuance. Heck, you'd even have to know the history of the oilfields and watch a lot of Tv to know what Shamarie is saying every time - but it's mean to be fun and to get more people to make the Quest. It starts with a brochure box at the Adair County Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - and then you're on your own - own your own quest! - CM

By Jelaine Harlow
For the Adair County W.A.T.C.H.

A few members of Adair County W.A.T.C.H. (working actively toward community health) Coalition participated in A Journey through Time, A Historical Quest about Adair County today during their lunch break.

The group is sponsoring a Family Fun & Fitness challenge which requires participating families to take the Quest as one of their activities.




The Quest takes 45-60 minutes and is fun and educational. We encourage everyone to find the time to take the Quest; meanwhile you can take a pictorial quest of today's journey. - Jelaine Harlow
