Underwriting support for the two-hour documentary, My Kentucky Home: Woodford County, has passed the halfway mark with the addition of Pisgah Community Historic Association, Calmes Family Association, Midway College, and Glenn and Sandi Bromagen to its growing list of underwriters, according to officials with the Marvo Entertainment Group.
"The documentary will highlight the historical and cultural uniqueness of our county and thus will educate Woodford County residents, Kentucky residents and our out-of-state visitors about this special place," said Sue Fosson, treasurer of the Pisgah Community Historic Association. "The goal of our organization is to raise awareness of our unique heritage, and this documentary will serve that goal well."
Speaking at the historic association's annual meeting, Marvo Executive Producer Sam Koltinsky, discussed Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist, Clifford Berryman, from Woodford County.
"The noted 1944 winner is credited with a name we all know ... "Teddy bear," said Koltinsky. "The name is associated with Berryman's famous Theodore Roosevelt bear cartoon."
Never miss a local story.
Koltinsky is working with the Theodore Roosevelt Partnership in Washington. More discoveries about Berryman can be found on the Woodford County section of the Marvo Web site, Marvoentertainmentgroup.com.
Winners of the Woodford County Historical Society documentary support raffle were: First place, Robert Chilton, a night at Castlepost; second place, JoAnn Gormley, a quilt from First in Quilting; and third place, David Tussey, a tray gift set from Pretty In Pink.
