Old pictures from B&BQ donated to Heritage group

Photos from Ol' Joes BBQ accompany full story

By Linda Waggener, lifetime member of AHA

The Adair Heritage Association recently received the gift of a large portion of Joe Lynn Barbee's photo collection which previously graced the walls of his barbecue restaurant on Campbellsville Street. There are drawings and prints of many historical places and events in Adair County, including several of the old courthouse.

Adair Heritage Association president Ellen Zornes said, "We greatly appreciate his gift and the pictures will one day be back on public display."

The Adair Heritage Association retained all officers and board members at its October meeting.

Volunteers continuing to serve are:

Ellen Zornes, President
Lee Ann Jessee, Vice President
Roger Meadows, Treasurer
Ted Caldwell, Secretary
June Grant, Susan Loy, and Mike Watson, board members

In its November meeting the board discussed the outrageous success of the Squarecrow project leading up to Downtown Days and Treats on the Town, and the fact that the public is calling for more, more, more! A Christmas card project is in the research phase. Also discussed was the upcoming December 5, 2015 annual events in the Historic Courthouse as part of Christmas in Columbia.

The Adair Heritage Association is a Nonprofit 501 (C)(3) status organization.
