Troop 37 plans rummage sale
Boy Scout Troop 37 will hold a rummage sale Saturday, Nov. 9, from 7a.m. to 1 p.m., at First Christian Church, 300 S. Main St., Lawrenceburg.
“Now is the time to rid your garage or basement of some of those items that you know you’re likely not going to use again, but may be exactly what someone else needs,” organizers said.
The troop is seeking support through donations of sale items or as shoppers at its sale. Troop members are accepting donations Monday through Friday, Nov. 4-8, 6 to 8 p.m., at First Christian Church.
If you need information or pick-up of any large items, please call 502-352-9088.
The proceeds from the rummage sale will help send Troop 37 scouts to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico in the summer of 2014.
“Troop 37 thanks the community for its support,” organizers said.

Pierian Woman’s Club

At its Oct. 17 meeting, the Lawrenceburg Pierian Woman’s Club made plans to host the Nov. 15 Kentucky Humanities Society Chautauqua presentation. Patricia Clark will portray Mary Todd Lincoln in “A House Divided” at 7 p.m. at the Anderson County Library. The club will serve light refreshments prior to the program and the public is cordially invited to attend this free event.
Members also scheduled candy making for the upcoming holiday season. For the past several years, sales of bourbon balls and buckeyes (peanut-butter balls) have raised funds for scholarships and other community-service projects. Colorful holiday-themed tins containing 12 pieces of either type of candy are $12 for bourbon balls and $7 for buckeyes. Call Sue Litkenhus at 839-6659 to place an order. Candy will be available before Thanksgiving through early December.
Saturday, May 17, 2014, was confirmed as the date of the club’s Spring Luncheon and Style Show.
Other highlights of the meeting included a program by David Nutgrass, who played several selections on the acoustic guitar. The book of the month, “The Sunday Philosophy Club,” was discussed. New members Brenda Barnes and Collette Bernard were introduced.
