News from Homeplace on Green River
What if -
Think: here is MY chance to make a difference for families who want an outdoor experience for children for years to come.
We see electronic gadgets occupying our lives resulting in disregard for our natural habitat. Think: MY resources can help Homeplace become a great place for family events, learning experiences, and protection of our heritage.
OK. You agree so far, right? We hope so, because an especially super opportunity is before us. Here's the deal: An anonymous person (God bless) has put up $5,000 if we can match it by February 1 by donations from you and other caring people. So far, $2,000 has been donated, but simple math tells us $3,000 is still needed.
The Homeplace Executive Board has selected the project that this money is to fund: to build a protective cover for a reassembled log pen barn dating to the early1800s. It is a well-preserved example of one of the earliest structures built by settlers. Funds are really needed for the whole to be enclosed within a permanent pavilion that will become a museum for displaying and learning about early farm tools and implements.
Think: Hmm. . . Homeplace is a 501c3 organization, so donations are tax deductible. Think: donations will go to a structure that will be a permanent place for years to come for people to learn about agricultural heritage. Where else is there such a place close-by? And when people come to visit, they will see my name - if I donate at least $50.00 - wood burned on a board inside the pavilion.
Please make out your check to Homeplace on Green River and mail it to Homeplace on Green River, P.O. Box 4212, Campbellsville KY 42719
