DOLLY AT ROTARY CLUB MEETING IN LOUISA…
By Susan Salyer
On Thursday August 25, 2022 from 12-1PM The Louisa Rotary Club had a weekly scheduled meeting at First Baptist Church in Louisa, Kentucky. Louisa Rotary Club President Harold Slone welcomed Rotarians and Guests to the meeting. Rotarians celebrating Birthdays and Anniversaries are Carolyn and Don Thompson 55 years and Rotarian Dan Smith celebrated his Birthday and Anniversary.
Louisa Rotary President Harold Slone introduced Keith Lyons, Representative from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) in Kentucky, along with a Dolly Parton cardboard statue at his side. So a cardboard statue on a zoom call was as close to seeing Dolly as the Rotary Club got.
Keith Lyons contracted Covid so he appeared via zoom call today at Rotary Club Meeting in Louisa, Kentucky. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school, no matter their family’s income. Over 130 million books have found their way to new readers since the Imagination Library began.
Lyons is trying to get all the 120 Kentucky counties to participate in DPIL. When DPIL goes statewide in Kentucky, Dolly Parton will make a visit to Kentucky. In Kentucky 14 counties have not adopted this program. These counties are Lawrence, Elliott, Mason, Montgomery, Powell, Lincoln, Fayetteville, Scott, Anderson, Boone, Breckinridge, Ballard, Carlisle and Hickman.
Rotary was adjourned.
The next Louisa Rotary Club Weekly Meeting is scheduled for September 1, 2022 from 12-1PM at the First Baptist Church in Louisa, Kentucky. Rotarian Brent Westmoreland will be Guest Speaker.
Rotarian Tammy Smith announced the 175th Anniversary for the First United Church in Louisa, Kentucky will be on Septemberfest weekend, Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 10:30AM.
