Hopefully spring has finally sprung now that the season is officially here. How refreshing to think of flowers blooming, fresh vegetables growing, and opportunities to enjoy being outside! The Woodford County Library is offering a workshop tomorrow to help you get started on your veggie growing. AppalSeeds will teach class members how to grow heirloom tomatoes and peppers. Each class member will leave with six seed packets and two tomato seedlings. The class, the seeds, and the seedlings are all free, but registration is required. Call (859) 873-5191.
Peep Art Contest
Never miss a local story.
No, it isn’t pictures from a peeping tom. Most people either love or hate the medium used for this art contest. It’s Peeps, the gooey marshmallow chicks found during the Easter season. Damselfly Gallery in Midway wants to see how creative and artistic you can be with these fluffy Easter staples. Only Peeps can be used in your art piece. Draw on them, put them in a diorama, but don’t disfigure them. Entries will be divided into age groups: five- to ten-year-olds, eleven- to eighteen-year-olds, and all adults. The winner in each category will receive a $25 gift certificate to Damselfly, and the entry selected Best in Show will be awarded a $50 Damselfly gift certificate. You’ll need to work quickly. All entries are due by Friday, March 27 to Damselfly, 133 North Winter Street, Midway. Call (859) 494-8759.
Egg Hunt Returns
Midway College is a beautiful spot to explore during just about any season, and during Easter the traditional campus egg hunt brings folks out in droves. The Ruth Slack Roach scholars hide enough eggs to keep the kids searching for a while, plus there are games, prizes, and even a visit from the Easter Bunny. The hunt, divided into age groups, will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 4 in front of the student center. The campus is located on East Stephens Street.
