Jouett House is a busy place

Soccer club scores donations

The Bluegrass Soccer Club recently collected more than 200 pounds of used soccer gear for its Passback program, a joint effort of the U.S. Soccer Foundation; Eurosport, a soccer equipment distributor; and Major League Soccer to collect used but playable soccer gear, which is donated to teams and organizations around the world that cannot afford basic equipment.

Jouett House is a busy place

The Jack Jouett House, 255 Craigs Creek Road, Versailles, and the University of Kentucky Art Museum have renewed their partnership. UK student Joseph Underwood has created a first-person portrayal of Jouett, an artist, for a performance at the art museum and area schools. Jouett House volunteers Micaela Rowland and Janice Clark participated in UK's Teatime for Teachers in September, inviting local educators to schedule group tours of Jouett's home. Executive Director Joel Meador was the featured speaker for UK's Art at Noon lecture on Oct. 1, and the museum's docents will tour the Jouett House in November. The UK Museum Studies class taught by Christine Huskisson, also a Jouett House volunteer, adopted the Jouett House as a case study for the fall semester. Class members visited the site recently, and one student will conduct a more in-depth study of site operations to share with her colleagues.

The Jack Jouett House Historic Site is owned and operated by the Woodford County Fiscal Court It is open for tours from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, April 1 through Oct. 31 and on other days by appointment. Call (859) 873-7902.
