  • Christmas Tour of Homes is Saturday

    This year’s Christmas Tour of Homes runs the gamut of homes historic and new, traditional and contemporary, but all the homes have something in common: They’ll be lit up for the Christmas season. And in the spirit of the sponsor, the Stephen Foster Music Club, most locations will feature either live or recorded holiday music as visitors tour the home.

  • Mid-Kentucky Chorus Christmas concerts scheduled

    The Mid-Kentucky Chorus at St. Catharine is a group of professional-level singers from several communities under the direction of Teresa Tedder. The choral selections are arrangements of traditional pieces enhanced by professional soloists and musicians. Chorus members give of their time each week for several months to prepare for this special concert.

    “It is very rewarding at the end of our concerts to know that we made someone happy,” Elsie Arnold, Bardstown, said.

    Five concerts are on the schedule this season:

  • Photos: Windsor Gardens fall festival

    Windsor Gardens held its annual Fall Festival on Oct. 23rd. They had a chili supper, silent auction, trunk or treat, pumpkin design contest and games. Many families and friends joined the residents in this day of fun. Windsor Gardens would like to thank the volunteers, including the Nelson County basketball and cheerleading teams. Also they would like to thank all who donated to make this a success.

  • Gifts being collected for those in nursing homes who might get left out

    For years, Kevin Hatfield and his wife participated in the Toys for Tots campaign that provided Christmas for needy children.

    But in 2007, Hatfield, who is originally from Bardstown but now living in Louisville, began wondering about the many senior citizens who may not get presents during the holiday season.

  • Christmas concert features new name, children’s chorus

    The annual Candlelight Christmas Concert returns to Parkway Baptist Church this December with a new name and a bigger children’s chorus representing schools throughout Nelson County.

    The event will now be called the Canticle of Christmas Concert, named after the musical piece the Bardstown Community Chorus will perform this year.

    “Somewhere along the way we dropped the candles,” explained Patricia Stone, president of the Stephen Foster Music Club, which has sponsored the event since the early 1970s.

  • Free meal available Thanksgiving Day

    The Bardstown-Nelson County Ministerial Association along with a host of volunteers will come together Thanksgiving Day in an effort to make sure every family in the Nelson County area can enjoy a holiday meal.

    The community dinner is an annual tradition in its 28th year that Basilica of St. Joseph Proto-Cathedral pastoral associate Rose Cruey said feeds approximately 500 people.
