Do you have a special quilt made in Kentucky or owned by a Kentucky resident? Was your quilt made before 1980? Then you should really consider participating in the Kentucky Quilt Registry Program. You will have a perfect opportunity the weekend of March 27th and 28th at the Boyle County Public Library when the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society will be in town to document qualified quilts.
Individuals wishing to have quilts documented are encouraged to make reservations. Reservations will be open beginning Feb. 17th at the Boyle County Extension Office. There is no charge to have quilts documented, but there is a limit of two quilts per person.
The weekend will also include a free presentation by Vickie Coleman on March 26th at 6:30 at the Library. Vickie will explain the differences and similarities between documentation, assessment and judging of vintage and antique quilts. The evening is open to the public and does not require advance reservations.
Individuals interested in volunteering for the registry event may also register at the Boyle County Extension Office beginning Feb. 17th. There are several jobs for volunteers which do not require extensive knowledge of quilts. Training will be provided.
This program is sponsored by the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society, the Boyle County Extension Office, the Heart of Danville and the Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County.

March 28th is the day. Stuart Powell Ford is the place. 300 test drivers is the goal to earn the Arts Commission $6,000! Stuart Powell Ford and the Ford Corporation will donate $20 to the Arts Commission for every test driver between 9:00 and 3:30. Come on out and take a spin in a beautiful Ford. Just a few minutes of your time will go a long way to providing arts activities for children in our community. Preregister at https://d4ur.com/PJM9W to save time.
CHECK IT OUT! It will make you smile!

Scarlet Cup Theater makes sure the show will go on – with a little help from the Advocate Messenger and Doug Gooch! When the theater received word that the planned venue would not be available just three weeks before opening night, they jumped into action and found a great new location. The play will be staged in the old newsroom of the Advocate Messenger. Get your tickets at danvillearts.org under the TICKET tab for this outstanding theater experience featuring Patrick Kagan-Moore as Mark Rothko and Kolton Winfield as Ken. Enjoy a NEW curtain time of 7:00 for the evening performances and 3:00, as usual, for Sundays.
Special theme dinners will be offered by Mary Robin Spoonamore at Barleycorns or stop by after the show for dessert and special cocktails. Reservations for dinner may be made directly with Barleycorns.
