FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 8, 2013) — The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host a “Food for Thought” luncheon program, “Pine Mountain Settlement School,” with Nancy Adams, executive director, and James Greene, Harlan County curriculum supervisor, at noon Wednesday, March 20, at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in downtown Frankfort.

                     

Located in the mountains of Appalachia in southeastern Kentucky, Pine Mountain Settlement School was an early source of education for the mountain youth of the area, offering a hands-on approach to education that continues to be a model for today’s schools. Join Adams and Green as they discuss the important role this school has played in the community.

 

The menu for the luncheon features garden salad, salmon or chicken croquettes, green beans, macaroni and cheese, rolls, pineapple upside-down cake, iced tea and coffee.

 

Tickets to the Food for Thought luncheon are $20 for KHS members and $25 for other patrons. To make a reservation, contact Julia Curry at 502-564-1792, ext. 4414. Reservations are required by Friday, March 15.
