Champions Coalition to host block party Print E-mail

The Pendleton County Champions Coalition for a Drug Free Pendleton County will be hosting community block parties this fall.  The first community block party will be held from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, September 21 on Fourth Street in Falmouth. The Falmouth Baptist Church parking lot will be used for activities as well.  The block party will host food, family-friendly games, a bluegrass band performing throughout the afternoon, information booths and an opportunity to participate in a national pilot study on family relationships.

The Champion’s Coalition mission is to prevent alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use, address youth violence, and target environmental contributors to these problems. As a coalition, it is understood that there are areas within the community that families do not feel safe.  The reason the Coalition is hosting the community block parties is to give the opportunity for those families and individuals to take a stand. To let their neighbors and community know that these are our streets, this is our community and that we want the drugs and violence to be gone.

The Coalition hopes that everyone will take a stand by coming and joining the celebration. There will be activities for all ages and a neighborhood bonding that is needed to make a difference. Please join the block party from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, September 21 on Fourth Street in Falmouth.

Republican Party update Print E-mail

Much was accomplished at the August meeting of the Pendleton County Republican Party. Judge executive candidate and magistrate David Fields gave the group an update on the happenings of the fiscal court and the financial situation of the county. His monthly updates are always very informative and helpful to the group. Members were also visited by state treasurer candidate Allison Ball and Supreme Court Justice Michelle Keller. Both gave introductions and explained why they should be sent to Frankfort to represent the people. It’s always exciting to meet people from other parts of the state and hear that the party’s concerns are shared across the Commonwealth. Members also elected Travis Brinkman as the new Republican youth chairman. Brinkman is a freshman at Northern Kentucky University and is studying political science and pre-law. The “School Supplies Drive” was also held in August and many grocery bags of materials were donated to a classroom at Southern Elementary.

In the month of September, the Pendleton County Republican Party is pleased to announce that Hal Heiner, candidate for governor and former Louisville councilman, will be attending the next gathering. He will present his plan to move Kentucky forward into the future. Anyone willing to attend is invited to come. As always, the meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at Howard’s Place in Falmouth. Meetings begin at 7 p.m.
