Oldham County Day 2016 is a success!
Project Guild of La Grange would like to thank the residents of Oldham County and nearby communities for attending the 46th annual Oldham County Day festivities. Thank you Judge-Executive David Voegele and magistrates for your continued support, including beautification projects that make the courthouse lawn a perfect setting for our annual celebration.
The Grand Marshal Luncheon, sponsored by Republic Bank, provided a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our grand marshal, Dr. Tom Clark DMD. Thank you to the Oldham County YMCA for hosting the Festival 5K and to the City of La Grange for the Dancing in the Street concert. Thanks to the La Grange Rotary for a delicious pancake breakfast on Saturday morning.
The Oldham County Day Parade would not be possible without continued support from our friends at TreeHouse Private Brands. Special thanks to Cornerstone Family Church, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, K&S Automotive, North Oldham Little League and La Grange Elementary for sharing space to stage the parade and everyone who participated in the parade. Thank you to the La Grange Christian Church for hosting the children’s carnival and the Oldham County History Center for featuring exhibits on their lawn.
We had wonderful entertainment throughout the day including the Blue Belles, the Oldham County Community Band and many wonderful performers who shared their talent. Thank you Norton Brownsboro Hospital for being our entertainment sponsor. And thanks to our booth participants, Oldham County Day had something for everyone!
We are continually grateful for those who coordinate the logistics of the Oldham County Day Parade with pedestrian and driver safety as the top priority. Thank you to the Oldham County Sheriff’s Office, La Grange Police, Oldham County Police, Oldham County Central Dispatch, Oldham County Jail, La Grange Public Works, Oldham County Fiscal Court, Oldham County Maintenance, Oldham County Road Department, the City of La Grange and Mayor Joe Davenport for supporting this event. Thanks again to the firehouse brigade from the Kentucky State Reformatory and all the early risers on Sunday that helped clean courthouse square and downtown streets at dawn.
Thank you to The Oldham Era for featuring our event and Oldham County Channel 25 for broadcasting the parade on TV and online via YouTube.
Project Guild of La Grange is always pleased to present Oldham County Day. We appreciate the understanding and patience of our friends and families during the many days of planning and preparation. I want to express my gratitude to the 18 ladies in Project Guild of La Grange for their hard work and total dedication to ensure a successful day. Oldham County Day is Project Guild’s way of giving back to the community.
Please join us next year on July 15, 2017, for the 47th annual Oldham County Day... a time to come together and celebrate Oldham County, always the third Saturday in July. We’ll see you there!
