Thomas Nelson High School opened its doors to the community Monday morning when students invited four local groups to eat a Thanksgiving meal with them.
“The table is really important,” said Assistant Principal Mark Webster, who organized the school event. “It’s to symbolize being thankful to the community.”
Webster said about 80 community members attended from four different local organizations — Active Day, the Guthrie Opportunity Center, Windsor Gardens and Maywood Manor.
Competitive runners, casual walkers and everyone in between can help The New Life Center support families in need by taking part in the third annual Turkey Fun Run and Family Stroll on Thanksgiving Day.
The Nov. 26 5K, from 8 to 10 a.m., will begin and end at Tiger Alley in the Bardstown Board of Education parking lot, where there will be a professional timekeeper, a DJ and refreshments for participants. It will follow a path along Fifth Street to Beall, then south along Fourth Street to Stephen Foster Avenue, through the Edgewood subdivision and back.
Bethlehem High School was “blinging out” Saturday with its 16th annual Lights, Camera … Auction! event.
The event serves as the premier fundraiser for Bethlehem and brings together family, friends and alumni to support the school and its students. Proceeds are used for educational enrichment, faculty development programs, financial assistance and academic scholarships.
