Lee County FFA donates to the museum by parking cars at the 32nd annual Woolly Worm Festival in Beattyville, KY.
We can't say enough about our local school system and especially the Lee County High School FFA under the leadership of Orvall Bennett. They are active in the community and do a wonderful job proudly representing Lee County when they travel to the KY State Fair in Lousiville or to Lexington to compete at the Wood Expo. Follow Lee County FFA on Facebook!
During the biggest event of the year in Beattyville, the Woolly Worm Festival, FFA students volunteers to park cars in the Village Apothecary lot and at Jack's IGA. They raised $1,462 and gave half in donation to the Three Forks Historical Center. We thank you Mr. Bennett and your students from the bottom our hearts for your donation and your support.

The agriculture teacher at the Lee County High School, Mr. Orvall Bennett, brought his classes down to the Three Forks Historical Center. Driving the bus was museum board member Ray Shuler and the kids were meet by board members Bob Smith and JD Sipple as they toured the museum. Many of the kids had never been to the museum before. Bob and JD pointed out some rare and important artifacts and were there to answer any questions that the students had while exploring. Lee County FFA link.
"It's difficult to figure out where you are headed in life if you don't know where you've been. Many artifacts in the museum were used by your grandparents and great grandparents as they farmed, mined, logged, and raised their families without your modern devices like smartphones." - Bob Smith, Three Forks Historical Center President
