Nicholasville NOW Moves Into New Home
Nicholasville NOW has relocated to 100 Oak Street in Nicholasville. Director Tonya Coleman said the group wanted to be in the thick of the new changes.
“We wanted to be closer to our downtown,” she said. “We wanted to be in the renaissance area.” The move will also allow Nicholasville Now to have more space to store items for its various events.
“Nicholasville Now needed more space because we’re doing the Kentucky Wine and Vine Festival and the Jessamine Jamboree and Spooky Time on Main, and we needed additional storage space,” Coleman said. The new location will hold an open house and ribbon cutting 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Fri., June 5.
