  • Thank you from The Hardin County Republican Executive Committee

    On behalf of The Hardin County Republican Executive Committee I would like to thank all the wonderfully generous and caring people who donated to the Wreaths Across America collection at Glendale Days on Saturday. Your generosity was greatly appreciated with over $400 given to Donna Betson, Chairwoman of Kentucky Patriots. This is a great project that boy scouts, girl scouts, classrooms and church groups could support. It would also be a wonderful way for parents to begin teaching (if they have not yet) their children that America’s veterans are not to be forgotten.
