Bill Goodman and Kathleen Pool of Kentucky Humanities visited the Three Forks Historical Center on Tuesday, June 22nd to present $10,000 in flood relief funds. On behalf of the museum, Kentucky Humanities petitioned the chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts in Washington DC for an emergency funding allocation to support museums and historical centers that were effected by the flood in March. The request was approved and emergency funding became available. The Red River Museum in Clay City and the Three Forks Historical Museum in Beattyville were two of the recipients of this flood relief funding. While visiting, Goodman and Pool took a tour of the museums and interviewed museum board members for their podcast show. Funding received by the Three Forks Historical Museum will be used to replace the heating and air conditioning units,
The first fundraiser for 2021 for the museum will be selling concessions for the 4th of July Celebration on Happy Top Park. Join the community at Happy Top on Sunday, July 4th for music, inflatables for the kids, splash park fun, and a spectacular fireworks show at dusk.
The museum also plans to have the annual Old Engine and Tractor show on the second weekend in September. The fish fry will start at 4pm!
