Newspaper needs your help for 'This Is Taylor County'

-A A +A
By The Staff

It's that time of year again - the time when the News-Journal scopes out all Taylor County has to offer.

Each year, the Central Kentucky News-Journal publishes a free community guide centering on Taylor County.

"This Is Taylor County," published each September, includes stories and information about everything there is to know in Campbellsville and Taylor County.

But we can't publish this guide without some help.

In order to print the most up-to-date information that we can, we need representatives from local churches, clubs and organizations to send us their information.

Has there been a change in your church leadership in the past year? Does your civic group have new officers or meeting dates? Is there a new contact person for your organization? Are there any new organizations in town?

We won't know these things unless you tell us. At one time, News-Journal staff members tried to contact club officers and pastors. Oftentimes, we were simply unable to reach those affiliated with churches and organizations.

By having clubs, organizations and churches submit their own information, the News-Journal hopes to offer a more accurate listing of the churches, clubs and organizations available in Taylor County.

There is no charge for including your church, club or organization in the listing. However, churches, clubs and organizations that do not submit information will not be included in the "This is Taylor County" publication.

Churches should submit the following information: the name of the church, the denomination of the church, the pastor's name, a phone number to call for more information, where the church is located and a listing of the types and times of services.

Clubs and organizations should submit the following information: the name of the club, the club president's name, a phone number to call for information, when the club meets, where the club meets and a brief description of the club.

Advertisements asking churches and organizations to submit this information, along with a form that can be clipped and returned to the News-Journal, will be published during the next several weeks.

Information may be mailed to Central Kentucky News-Journal, P.O. Box 1138, Campbellsville, Ky. 42719; faxed to 465-2500; e-mailed to cknj@cknj.com; or brought by the News-Journal office on Woodlawn Avenue.

In addition to information about local churches and organizations, "This Is Taylor County" includes staff-written articles that describe the history and heritage of Taylor County and Campbellsville, Green River Lake, local economic development, arts and culture, sports and recreation, education, health care, emergency services, faith, clubs and organizations, local law enforcement, City and County government and agriculture.

If you have updated information about your organization or church, contact Social Writer Neila Schuhmann at 465-8111 Ext. 224 or by e-mail at cknj@cknj.com.

The deadline to submit any additions to last year's guide or changes that need to be made is Friday, Aug. 15.
