We probably saw you. And after this past weekend in Campbellsville, there's a good chance we did. Between the fall festival at The Homeplace on Green River, the Taylor County Marching Band Invitational and 2nd Sunday, and that's not counting individual church and other organizations' events, there should have been something to interest just about anyone. And we hope you were there.
According to organizers, more than 400 visited The Homeplace for demonstrations of old-fashioned plowing, quilt displays, corn hole, a hay castle, a petting farm, hay rides, pony rides, music and more.
TCHS Band Director Stephen Bishop said between 3,000 and 4,000 people attended Saturday's band competition, which featured bands from across the state as well as an always-awesome performance of the Campbellsville University band.
And the 2nd Sunday crowd at Miller Park boasted more than 150 for an afternoon of walking, biking, cycling, rollerblading, skateboarding, throwing Frisbees and more.
And then, if you're into politics, there was a Democratic rally last weekend and there's a Republican rally set for this weekend as well as a fundraiser for the hospital.
What more could a community want?
What is most telling, however, is what's behind all of these events. There have been hours upon hours of time volunteered from literally hundreds of people.
And to us that means that we live in a community that cares - about its people, its history and its future.
