Notes from Bruce
Hello! A few updates from ForwardKY headquarters (otherwise known as my den):
- My wife and I have been exceptionally busy the past few months getting the house ready to be on a garden tour. The tour was yesterday (a beautiful day for it), and seemed to be a big success. Now that that is over, and the yardwork is basically complete, I plan on doing a lot more writing in coming weeks.
- At the request of a few people, I set up a way for supporters to do a recurring donation, in addition to a one-time donation. If you value what we’re trying to do here, and want to help keep it going, you can do so at the donation page.
- I’ve added the Share buttons to the newsletter (at the bottom). If you think someone else would find this useful, please email it to them, or post it on social media.
Here are the stories since the last newsletter. Hope you find something good that you missed, and can go back and read it now. Take care!
