The City Council will be discussing the whitewater park and possibly about whether to begin work on the park this year. The meeting is this Tuesday at 7 p.m. We encourage anyone who has interest in the park to attend the meeting to show your support. The meetings are held in the Council Chambers at the City Hall Annex Building, 220 North Fifth Street – Xavier Dr.
May 30th will most likely be the date for the 5th annual Paddle Pickup. Justin Janes will be speaking with the local Boy Scout troop to see if this date works for them as well. We are looking into cleaning a different stream besides the Beech Fork, but if water levels are low, we will clean the Beech Fork again.
The Bardstown Boaters would like to organize a few club trips this year. We can provide canoes, a raft and a duckie for those who may not have their own boat. We are open to all suggestions about where to go and what class of whitewater to do. Please provide feedback on this in the forum.
The Bardstown Boaters will now hold regular meetings every 2 months on the 4th Saturday. The next meeting will be on Saturday, March 28th at 105 East Broadway, Bardstown, KY. Check the calendar for the dates on all upcoming events.
