Georgetown was the backdrop for the 2016 Bluegrass Area Extension Homemaker Annual Meeting Oct. 22.

Pat Skinnemoen of Clark County serves as president of the nine-county Bluegrass Area.

The group enjoyed the theme for the day which was all about Kentucky and table favors featured Winchester’s very own Ale-8 One soft drink.
