Bargain Hunting and Savvy Seller @ Knott County Extension Office
Apr 18 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Many of us have items in our home that have been kept long beyond their usefulness. These items often clutter our houses, while we scratch our heads wondering what to do with them. Many times, clothes, furniture or odd knickknacks are still in good condition, yet we no longer have a use for them or we want to downsize. On the other hand, many of us also have upcoming purchases, such as back-to-school clothes, home redecorating or furnishing a college apartment, that make us wonder whether there is a cheaper option. Laken Campbell, Lee County Family & Consumer Sciences Agent will share tips for selling and shopping, to keep extra cash in your pocket.

Alfombras – Community Art Project @ River Arts Greenway
Apr 19 @ 12:30 pm

Celebrate Holy Week in Hazard with a community art project on the River Arts Greenway!

View ALFOMBRAS created by Hazard High School Students or make your own starting at 12:30pm (Good Friday) April 19th.

As a traditional part of Holy Week celebration in Central America, Alfombras de Semana Santa are created out of natural materials and displayed in city centers, on streets leading to churches, or inside houses of worship.  Although the carpets often take an incredible amount of time and effort to design and create, the religious processionals of Good Friday soon trample them and disperse their breath-taking, ephemeral beauty!
