I just wanted to drop a quick post to let everyone know I posted a quick video from Showcase Oldham County. This was the first time I had been to Showcase Oldham County as a visitor, and not as a vendor participant. The building was a step up from the old Winn-Dixie site that was used before. Parking was a little bit of an issue this time around though. I’m probably being a bit too critical, but I would have liked to see more interactive booths. The date this year was moved back a few weeks in hopes of nicer weather and no snow like last year — and they got it! It was REALLY pretty that day. So pretty, that I wonder if it hurt their attendance numbers. I’ll probably look to get involved next year. Hopefully a date is available that won’t conflict with the Home Garden and Flower Show.
The Oldham County school board met tonight to discuss which days to use for makeup days for time missed due to the windstorm. The meeting was held at Centerfield Elementary School, in Crestwood. The board decided to use the following days. The decision will extend the school year by 2 days in May.
