    The festive day will begin with Pancakes With Santa, sponsored by the Williamstown Kiwanis Club, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Williamstown High School cafeteria.

  • Dry Ridge veteran honored with flight to D.C.

    Hundreds of flag-waving family, friends and patriotic Americans packed the terminal at Louisville International Airport on Oct. 22 to welcome home veterans returning from a trip to visit the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

    Twenty-nine veterans, ranging from ages 85 to 92, went on the one-day trip that was sponsored by Owen Electric Cooperative, Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives and the Bluegrass Chapter of the Honor Flight Network.

    All were veterans of World War II, except two who served during the Korean War.


    There will be a Thanksgiving service on Nov. 22 at Dry Ridge Baptist Church. The service begins at 7 p.m. The community is invited.


    The Williamstown Baptist Church is again delivering Hope Thanksgiving Day meals to shut-ins and those in need throughout Grant County. In 2010, this project reached over 550 people in the community, the largest number since this ministry started. The meals will be delivered by noon on Thanksgiving day. If there is someone in need of a hot Thanksgiving meal with all of the trimmings, contact the church at 859-824-4102 and ask for Diane. The deadline for reservations is Nov. 20.
