Program brings people together to share their gifts and talents
Louisa, KY — Thursday evening, April 30, proved there was no shortage of gifted and talented people in Lawrence County, as the Kentucky Community of Sharing programcelebrated the opening of its Louisa office with an open house event at the Louisa Senior/Community Center from 4-7 pm.
The program is a sharing initiative that brings together people in communities to learn and teach skills from each other. The Louisa program, headed up by Tina Jackson, has been holding meetings for the past year and found that there are many people in Lawrence County with talents, gifts and skills that are very useful, teachable, learnable, and could also lead to developing a business.
Some of those skills include: carpentry, writing, driving a truck, storytelling, accounting, listening, auto repair, cooking, poetry, repair work, playing musical instruments and more.
Folks who came out to the grand opening Thursday were able to meet and talk with each other and discuss opportunities to share these skills. Sign up sheets were available to learn such skills as sign language and CPR.
The bluegrass group Hammertowne provided the entertainment for the evening. Food and drinks were provided by Cathi Kise Blair and Marsha Slone.
Program Director, Tina Jackson, said she was pleased with the turnout. “This is great!” she said.
