MES Hosts 2nd Annual Kentucky Folk Life Festival
On Thursday, September 5th, 2013, many Butler County elementary students experienced Kentucky history through a living history presentation at Morgantown Elementary's 2nd Annual Kentucky Folk Life Festival. Students were able to personally view items from their history, listen to presentations, ask questions, and many times actually touch items from their past, therefore, enriching their future.
Features at the festival included; Bluegrass music, quilting, pottery, pioneer games, butter churning, flag display, blacksmithing, live animals, horse and carriage rides, knitting, and much more! The 2013 Kentucky Folk Life Festival was presented in part by the Green River Chapter of the DAR & the Western Kentucky Council of the Kentucky Reading Association.
