Day 1: Catfish Festival underway despite downpour

The 2014 Green River Catfish Festival officially kicked off yesterday at the Charles Black City Park in Morgantown.  James Runion, president of the Morgantown-Butler County Chamber of Commerce, started the opening ceremony by describing the Festival as a time for "food, family, friends, fellowship, and fishing."  In a race with the oncoming rain, the Butler County High School NJROTC Color Guard presented the flags and Kyle Whitaker performed the National Anthem.

Morgantown Mayor Linda Keown gave the official welcome to the Festival.  The mayor described the Catfish Festival as a "time to reflect on the flag, the Fourth of July, and what it means."  Specifically, Mayor Keown spoke of the "sacrifices made by so many for these freedoms." 

"When you see the fireworks on Independence Day, think about the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice," said Keown.  

The mayor wrapped up her remarks by reminding festival-goers to reflect on "all the positives."  "Enjoy, get involved and have a great time," added Keown.

U.S. Representative Brett Guthrie (R-KY/2nd District)) also spoke briefly. 



State Rep. C.B. Embry and Congressman Brett Guthrie.  Embry (R-Morgantown) is running for the KY State Senate/6th District.

"It's always great to be in Butler County," said Guthrie, who stated that he was looking forward to eating catfish.  "It's a great time to celebrate the Declaration of Independence and to celebrate the ideas of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  

A downpour of rain forced the remainder of the opening ceremony - drawing of envelopes for tagged fish in the fishing tournament - was moved inside the first pavilion.  The fishing tournament runs Thursday, July 3 through Saturday, July 5, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
