Historical society’s Tasting Party event a huge success

Dear Editor,

On Monday, May 1 — the earliest we have ever had it — The Harrodsburg Historical Society hosted its 27th annual Tasting Party. The event on Monday for the third year has proved to be of benefit and we are delighted with our returning guests and first-time participants.

Delicious food, delightful guests and the beautiful setting of our Morgan Row facility is a great way to showcase the importance of our historical heritage and these fundraising events help to preserve it. 

The work of HHS board members and co-chairs Toni Preston and Jane Eitreim, and long time worker and hostess Myrgle Huffman, assisted by Bonnie Rumble, as well as the many who worked, including our wait staff of homeschoolers organized by Sharnett Imfeld, are indeed a testimony of leadership and teamwork. 

And last, but not least, all the contributors of food are to be thanked. They are what make the Tasting Party a true tasty delight! We not only had individual members and friends of the HHS, but some businesses added their talents. 

Thank you to Jennifer Kazimer of the Kentucky Fudge Company for potato salad; HHS member Helen Dedman of the Beaumont Inn for the Inn’s chess bars; Jeff Claycomb of Lee’s Famous Recipe for chicken; Subway at the Corral Center for sandwiches; Tim Ellis at Ellis Florist and Gifts; and Jan Briscoe of Royalty’s Florist for flowers.  

With the great publicity provided by Bobbie Curd and The Advocate-Messenger, we were delighted to see many join us from Danville and the surrounding area.  We sincerely appreciate the publicity provided by this newspaper and the readers who are aware of all the great events publicized.
