There are always a lot of public events to participate in here in our city. It's often hard to decide which event to attend. On Saturday, October 17, Jefferson Memorial Forest hosted the Mayor's Healthy Hometown Hike, which was a huge success. Hundreds of people made it out to the forest for hiking and general fall fun. There were pumpkins being given out, and many booths to look at with a lot of giveaways. Music, free hot chocolate and delicious local food made the morning a lot of fun. All of this was set to a beautiful backdrop of fall colors at the forest.
On Friday night, November 6, Jefferson Memorial Forest will be hosting a movie night, focusing on climate change. They will show "An Inconvenient Truth," which will be followed by a question and answer session. To find out more about this event, call (502) 368-6865.
