    So far this summer, things have been quite busy in our little corner of the world.
    And, the promise is there to keep us active throughout the summer.
    I’ve said it before and just can’t say it enough ... our Chamber and Main Street directors are keeping it interesting.
    We are two concerts into the Summer Concert Series and I have to say those have been some of my favorite events.

    The Harrison County Fillies basketball squad has hit the ground running for the summer.  After a successful Future Fillies Camp began on Wednesday, with the players as part of the instruction team, the girls traveled to Nicholasville to play later in the day.
