Community Calendar

Summer is here, and there are several special events getting

ready to take place in our community. Wilmore will host

the Stonebridge Concert Series throughout the summer.

You’ll want to bring a lawn chair and listen to the joy of great

music.

One of the most exciting events this summer will be the

2018 Barbasol Championship hosted by Champions at Keene

Trace in Nicholasville. This event will help designate our area

as a tourist destination and will provide a form of publicity

that we could not afford otherwise. While here, visitors

will explore our vineyards, horse farms, historical sites, and

beautiful downtowns.

Opportunity is on our doorstep and we all must be ready

for a fun filled summer!

Mitchell Pearson is the executive director of the Jessamine

County Joint Tourism Commission. He can be reached by
