Oh my gosh! Bourbon Bash was a blast!!! From the wine tasting on Thursday night, the bourbon tasting on Friday night, the wonderful fireworks to end the weekend, AND the fantastic food, there was something for everyone. We also had a tour of Buffalo Trace Distillery on Saturday that was well attended, as well as individual tours around Bardstown.
If you missed it, you need to mark your calendars for the first weekend in August of next year!!!
Thanks so much to the great crew who worked from KY and elsewhere (I would miss someone if I tried to name everyone)! Thanks, also, to Will Chester for chairing the event, Cyndi Thornburg-Schnell for preparing the gift baskets, and to Jim Dulin for his awesome cooking and to his co-chef, Monty Schroeder. You guys rock!!!
I would like to add a special thank you to my partners in crime this year: my fellow state presidents from our region: Melodie Ainsley from IL, Sherry Jones from IN, Kim Hubbell from MI, and Larry Dawson from OH; Region V VP Mike Andrews; our national officers: Admin VP – John Robinson, Treasurer – Lawrence Pittman, and our national president – Jim Mammen. Thanks for coming and participating in ALL the fun.
Great things are happening in the KY JCI Senate! Check us out, come join the fun, and renew old friendships.
Hope to see you soon!
