9th Annual Whippoorwill Festival @ Beattyville, KY
Jul 20 all-day

Registration is open, with discounted early-bird pricing now through June 1. https://www.tickettailor.com/events/whipporwillofkentuckylimited/235063

Jump in and join us for the 9th annual Whippoorwill Festival – Skills for Earth-Friendly Living!! This year’s fest is July 19-21, 2019, and will be held in the gorgeous Lago Linda Hideaway, near the Red River Gorge in Beattyville, Kentucky. Lago Linda has basic tent camping and improved campsites with water and electric hookups. Amenities include flush toilets, hot showers, plenty of parking, gravel roads, hiking trails, and a beautiful lake.

Are you interested in building healthier and more resilient communities? The skills and connections to do so? Whippoorwill was created in response to a need for a supportive, family friendly learning environment to help build the world we wish to see. We share traditional and modern living skills in a joyful, healthful and family friendly atmosphere. Join us as we celebrate Appalachian Heritage and new traditions while helping to build community resilience needed to face modern concerns.

The event is family friendly, and there are workshops and activities for children as well as adults. There are morning activities and evening entertainment.

Our workshops span topics such as: gardening, permaculture, natural building, tracking, fire making, stargazing, foraging, pottery, woodworking, appropriate technology, cooperative skills, herbalism, wellness/self-care, livestock raising, and food preparation/preservation.
We especially love workshops that:
Are taught by local instructors
Focus on the skills and folkways of our Appalachian region
Are aligned with Whippoorwill’s roots in the movement for social and environmental justice in Appalachia. This includes workshop proposals on monitoring soil, water, and air quality, extreme mineral extraction, bioremediation, community organizing, civic engagement, human identity politics, and cultural appropriation.

The Whippoorwill Festival is an all-volunteer, community-run labor of love. We strive to be as accessible as possible to our whole community, and our tickets are priced as affordably as possible, with early-bird specials and discounts for weekend package tickets. Your ticket cost includes parking, tent camping, and some meals (breakfast and dinner only). Please donate generously and know that 100% of your money goes to improving the festival – better workshops, music, food, and demonstrations!

Want to teach, perform or work-trade? Applications will be posted soon with further info! Workshops and Entertainment will be posted as they are confirmed.

Building Operator Certification Training @ MACED
Jul 26 all-day

Optimize your building performance with Building Operator Certification

Running a building isn’t the job it used to be, and investing in technology isn’t enough. A well-trained facilities staff makes the difference in running building operations more efficiently, saving energy and money.

The Building Operator Certification (BOC) is a nationally recognized program focusing on energy-efficient building operations and preventive maintenance procedures. The program will train facility personnel to understand how their building systems work together, and how to bring them to their most efficient level of operation. BOC provides access to the latest information, a network of peers and resources, and the tools needed to excel in energy conservation efforts. With its national accreditation and broad network, the BOC credential is recognized by employers across the country as a sign of the value and contributions certified facilities management personnel can bring to their organizations.

The KY Pollution Prevention Center and the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance have collaborated to bring the BOC program to Kentucky through funding by the KY Energy and Environment Cabinet and partnership with MACED.

Topics covered include:
• Efficient Lighting Fundamentals
• Indoor Environmental Quality
• Common Opportunities for Low-Cost Operational Improvement
• Facility Electrical Systems
• Preventive Maintenance and Troubleshooting Principles
• Advanced Electrical Diagnostics
• HVAC Troubleshooting, Maintenance, Controls and Optimization
• Motors in Facilities
• Building Commissioning
• ..And More

For more information on BOC, visit: www.boccentral.org and www.kppc.org.

Tats For Tots @ Lost Gypsy Tattoo
Aug 1 @ 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Mark your calendars!! Due to high demand, we’ve cleared our schedules to offer Sharpie tattoos to your kids. To keep from limiting this event we only require a $1 minimum cash or check donation (there is no maximum, so be as generous as you wish 😊). 100% of the proceeds will go to the Care Cottage, a nonprofit organization that helps child victims of sexual abuse in 8 of our surrounding counties. Your donation will be put toward providing food, clothing, baby necessities, books, and toys for child victims to help ease traumatic encounters. The care cottage offers a warm, inviting facility that operates solely on grants and generous donors like yourself, and could use any assistance given for maintenance, future renovations, and projects to benefit and educate our community. For those unable to attend, or for our friends who live far away or prefer donating electronically we have started a GoFundMe in their honor. We will also be accepting physical donations such as new blankets (these are provided to children in lieu of medical gowns for examinations), gently used toys or clothes, or individually packaged non-perishable food items. Those can be brought here to the shop or to the Care Cottage directly at 465 Cedar Street Hazard, KY. For more info regarding these donations contact Victoria Halcomb at 487-9173.

Now, onto the details. We will have “flash books” available for your child to look through for designs, or you can simply tell us what theyd like to get and we can create it, just like we do for Mom and Dad. We will be limiting size and detail of designs (dont expect a full sleeve for your little one) as there will be alot of children to accommodate and we are limited with what can be accomplished using markers. Please be patient, and expect a wait. We will not be able to draw on broken, scabbed, or otherwise irritated skin, including cases of severe eczema. This is for your child’s safety, so no exceptions, sorry. If your child has any allergies or has reacted poorly to any chemicals/dyes/harsh detergents in the past, please inform us before we begin. Again, we dont want anyone to be caused discomfort. We will have a sign in sheet and take clients on a first come first serve basis. We will be maintaining a PG environment throughout the day, but be prepared for your child to be rockin’ with Dokken at some point (we can’t tattoo to the Wiggles). Any flash or artwork that may be deemed inappropriate will be censored or taken down, but we can’t reach the mermaid on top of the building, so she stays 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ Any questions/concerns message the shop page directly. We have a few special surprises planned, so stay tuned for announcements in the following weeks. Hope to see you there!!!
