2009 KY SCV Reunion: June 26-28 Bardstown


The 2009 reunion will be held in Bardstown, Kentucky on the weekend of 26-28 June.

The meetings will be held in the Kurtz Restaurant; lodging (while it lasts) is at the Parkview Hotel, which is adjacent to the Restaurant.  Both establishments are located directly across the road from "My Old Kentucky
Home". The host Camp is John Hunt Morgan, from Louisville.

On Friday evening, those of us driving in from a distance will meet at the Old Talbot Tavern  for  social interaction and then dinner at some local restaurant.  The Talbot does has one very nice restaurant too.

On Saturday, we'll meet at Kurtz Restaurant in the upper level meeting room.  The building will not be open until 0900 hrs, so registration will begin at that time.

The morning business session will be from 0930-1130.

We'll break for lunch from 1130-1230.

At 12:30, we'll resume the business session, lasting until 1400.  The last 30 minutes or so will be dedicated to Brigade meetings, which will focus on Elections for Brigade Commander.

After the business meeting, we'll plan to visit Bardstown's Civil War Museum (which is excellent!).

During the day there are tons of things that wives  or others could do. Heaven Hill Distillery runs a little trolley from downtown out to the distillery for a tour.  There is also an afternoon performance (indoors) of the Stephen Foster Musical.  Of course, the Civil War Museum and the Women of the Civil War Museum would also be open.
That evening those who are remaining in town could plan their own events, or could gather at another restaurant for dinner.  Plans are still underway for the evening.

On Sunday, there'll be a memorial service at the Confederate section of the cemetery at 0900.

Registration will cost $18.00; extra medals are available for $15.00 each. Meals and entertainment will be pay-as-you-go.  Early registrations at the hotel are suggested.

Much more to follow.
