ISSUE 7 I APRIL 2021 PUBLISHER EDITOR IN CHIEF CREATIVE / STYLE DIRECTOR Giselle Smith
ASSOCIATE EDITOR Alexandra Lanz
It’s that time again. A fresh magazine is hot off the press and ready for spring. I appreciate all of our readers, followers, advertisers, and everyone in the community and am so thankful for your continued support of Elizabethtown Lifestyle Magazine. Etown keeps getting better and better, and I am glad to get to know so many community members and business owners alike and show off their talents and expertise in our content creation journey. Issue 7 is chock-full of local greatness, and I’m thrilled to share. Our cover feature this issue is on the most-loved Bluegrass holiday: The Kentucky Derby. If you’re throwing a Derby party this spring, we’ve got you covered on tips and inspiration. Related features include a fabulous fashion feature from Type A Style with hats and fascinators galore courtesy of The Hat Doctor, plus delish drink recipes from Bourbon Barrel Tavern. Spring is also the season for the Farmer’s Market; maybe we will run into each other some Saturdays this spring along with Jessica and John-Thomas Hodges from Modern Heritage Farm. Their farm is featured in this issue (HINT: It is my favorite feature). We have added a series on long-lived buildings and business in Hardin County, including The Brown-Pusey House, The Historic State Theater, and Waters Edge Winery located in the iconic Mulberry-Helm Building. The Hosparus Tea may not be happening, but contribute to the cause by visiting the Hosparus Thrift Store; learn more in the feature. You’re invited!—As always, this feature in premium papers from Courtney Ballard is sure to inspire and invite. Last but never least, Collected Style from FINE House & Garden pulls back the curtain on the well-styled shelves.

the Kentucky DERBY
We’re celebrating the most exciting 2 minutes in Sports – and you’re invited! Cover Photography: Morgan Worley Photography at HIP South & Bourbon Barrel Tavern
CELEBRATIONS ARE IN ORDER, AND HERE’S WHAT YOU ***NEED***
Planning the perfect Derby party requires decor, and PATTERNS ARE IT. I chose leopard chargers because I had them on hand, but I love this runner from FINE House & Garden. They are our favorite for local decor; they carry everything from table runners and pretty patterned napkins to tables, chairs, and furniture, plus horse-themed details ideal for the holiday at hand. You can visit FINE in person at 104 N. Mantle Avenue, Elizabethtown or shop online at finehg.com or Facebook and Instagram. Elizabethtown Florist can design in any style and definitely won the race with these gorgeous modern pieces for our party pics. Order your floral arrangements at etownflorist.net or call (270) 765-4134 for something custom for your event.

A Derby dress purchased right here in Hardin County from a local boutique Your best hat or fascinator from The Hat Doctor, ETown native Ilana Kogan Entertainment—the race may only last 2 minutes, but the fun doesn’t have to. We found a selection of board games online, but if you don’t want to buy anything, old school beer pong is always a blast even if you haven’t played since college. Not ready to throw a party? Bourbon Barrel Tavern is serving up the best in Derby drinks, and they’ll be happy to host your event. Call in advance to reserve a VIP spot or visit their Facebook or Insta.
MINT JULEP Fresh Mint Leaves 1/2oz Simple Syrup 1 Cup Crushed Ice 2oz Woodford Reserve Bourbon Water/Splash of Soda Water Fresh Mint Sprig to Garnish Directions In a Julep cup or rocks glass, lightly muddle the mint leaves with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon. Be careful not to break apart the mint; you just want to release its aromatic oils. Add the bourbon and fill the cup half full with ice. Stir until the Julep cup is frosted on the outside. Fill completely with ice and garnish with a sprig of mint. Enjoy!
OAKS DAY LILY 1 1/4oz Grey Goose Vodka 1/4oz Triple Sec 3oz Cranberry Juice 1oz Sweet & Sour Mix Splash of Lemon Lime Soda Crushed Ice Fruit to Garnish
Directions If you have an Oaks glass on hand, that’s perfect, but any stemless wine glass will suffice. Combine ingredients over crushed ice. Garnish with a twisted lemon peel and blackberry for the traditional Lily, but you may also use your choice of fruit. We love dehydrated blood orange slices.
DRESS FROM THAT CUTE LITTLE SHOP
Sure to impress, any Kentucky event needs gourmet meats and cheese displayed for grazing. Charcuterie board, stirrups, and spoons courtesy of FINE House & Garden. SOUTHERN CHARCUTERIE • Pimento Cheese • Fried Chicken • Fresh- Baked Corn Bread • Ham & Jam Biscuits • Jalapeno Deviled Eggs • Peanuts & Salted Nuts • Red Peppered Anything
DREAMY PAPER DETAILS MAKE THE DAY
Hats and fascinators are the go-to Derby outfit accessories, but parties need their own accents to complete the look. Local artist Courtney Ballard is the BEST in town for invites and paper products of all kinds. We also ordered this Derby board game online for a game night with kids or friends.
COVER DRESS FROM RAIMENT + BOON
Run for the roses... and the tulips, daffodils, peonies, and dahlias! Floral patterns are all the rage, so why not rock what’s in with a Draper James floral dress and matching accessories. Plus, it makes it super easy to coordinate when it comes to a Derby headpiece with lots of flowers and colors to choose from.
Local Fashion Inspiration:
best-dressed DERBy Type A Style Photography: Morgan Worley Photography Before the Run for the Roses, you should run out to your favorite local boutiques for the latest in Derby Fashion. I’m Amanda Burris, a fashion guru and self-taught designer. I approach fashion & interior design with a frugal eye, and I love sharing my awesome finds through my lifestyle blog, Type A Style. I’ve compiled some of my favorite looks for the most exciting two minutes in sports—no need to drive to Louisville. All of the outfits can be purchased at your favorite local boutiques right here in Elizabethtown and all are paired with fabulous hats from The Hat Doctor, Ilana Kogan! I’m a proud wife of a local police officer and mommy to Maverick Dean and his fur-brother, Bentley. Follow along as I find my way through life, one outfit at a time! www.typeastyle.com Instagram: @type.a.style Facebook: @typeastyledesign Amanda V. Burris
Raiment + Boon
Step outside the trifecta box by wearing a black leather dress. Not your typical color palette for the greatest two minutes in sports, but it brings all the class and sass. I love to wear unconventional pieces to Churchill because you don’t have to be bright and colorful when placing your bets! Plus, it pairs perfectly with the coolest leopard fascinator.
In honor of the Oaks official flower, the stargazer lily, don’t forget to think pink on Oaks Day. Pink may be my favorite color, but it looks great on anyone and is so easy to style. I love the mauve shade of this ruffle dress. It really makes the neutral and gold accents pop without stepping outside the muted color wheel.
The Cute Little Shop
I’ll be wearing lace to the races! Crocheted lace is all this rage this season. The scalloped detailing has such an ease of elegance without even trying. This breathtaking lacy confection pairs perfectly with a stylish headpiece and a simple clutch to hold all your winnings! Old town class meets trendsetter chic and brings all the class.

CL AGET T PHOTOGR APHY
The BrownPusey House Photography: Clagett Photography
It is rare to encounter someone who hasn’t heard about the famous, historic Brown-Pusey House. Many weddings have been celebrated inside their walls and in the magnificent, colorful Cunningham Garden. One thing the public may not realize is that The Brown-Pusey House is, and has been, so much more than a party venue. Built in 1825, the house started as a Georgian mansion for John and Rebecca Hill. It eventually transformed into a boarding house, called The Hill House, for travelers in the mid-1800’s through the Civil War Era. The most notable visitor of that time is General George Armstrong Custer. The Hill house advertised that they served some of the finest food and coffee in the entire region.
In 1922, two brothers, named William A. and Alfred Brown Pusey, purchased The Hill House. Restoration began immediately, and they renamed it The BrownPusey House. Now, 99 years later, the house serves as a venue for community events, a Genealogy Library, and an extremely unique museum. The house itself serves as a museum where visitors can visit for free, Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 am- 4:00 pm. While taking a look around, you will discover a small museum on the other side of the Genealogy Library. When you walk down a few stairs, you are greeted by a room full of historical relics. It is genuinely a Historian’s dream. Inside the Pusey Museum, you will find several items belonging to Dr. William A. Pusey. His personal desk, desk chair, examination chair, medical books, and his father’s medical instruments are all inside that room. The Brown-Pusey House is home to personal journals from the 1800s, portrait paintings of the previous owners, and various other items that belonged to people passing through those halls. The museum has many Civil War artifac ts displayed and the original grave marker of General Ben Hardin Helm. The most famous piece in the entire home is the Lincoln Cabinet. It is a corner cabinet made by Thomas Lincoln, President Abraham Lincoln’s father. There are beautiful patterns in the inlaid wood, all of which were explicitly unique to Thomas Lincoln. The cabinet was put on display in 1998 by George Wesley Hoskinson, whose family are relatives of the Lincoln’s. As stated in their brochure, “The Genealogy Library is one of the largest in a seven-county region with access to the national registries.” It’s the perfec t place for any Elizabethtown native to research their family history. Twylane Van Lahr has been the direc tor of this National Historic Landmark since 2007. Her love for the history of The Brown-Pusey House is evident from the first moment of talking with her. She truly enjoys “helping people discover where they came from” as well as “seeing the smiles on people’s faces at the weddings hosted in the house.” She has an incredible depth of knowledge about the history surrounding the house. Just in one hour, she explained that the Brown-Pusey house was the only public library until 1956, has been on the National Historic Register since 1976. She also shared that there is an entire apartment upstairs available for people to rent as a venue for small parties, bridal and baby showers, small meetings, and even bridge club. Mrs. Van Lahr loves that they can offer a beautiful wedding venue for an affordable price. Brides can even rent the apartment upstairs for a place to get ready on their big day. Brown-Pusey House is a nonprofit community organization that focuses on offering the community access to the mansion in various ways. It is the home for Elizabethtown Women’s Club, Elizabethtown Garden Club, and The Daughters of the American Revolution. It’s also known for its famed Tavern in the Garden, which started six years ago. Pre-Covid, the event was held every Thursday in June-September. It served as a meeting place for locals to enjoy music, drink wine, and network with other people in the community. One of the best things about Tavern in the Garden is the atmosphere. The event takes place in the stunning Cunningham Garden, which is open to the public year-round. The goal is to continue their summer tradition this year, which will hopefully be in effec t in July. Please follow the Brown Pusey House on Facebook to stay informed on the upcoming Tavern in the Garden season, and please follow the Brown Pusey House on Facebook.

collected The folks at FINE House & Garden pull back the curtain on styling shelves with a balance between new and old— and explain why it’s okay to leave some empty space. Photography by Thomas Deaton
least once a week, without fail, we find ourselves on the other end of this question: “what would you do here?” As our customers flip around their phones to show us a photo of a repurposed cabinet, built-in shelves in a new home, or a freshly-painted fireplace mantel, we spend the next few minutes working our way around the shop, brainstorming new ways of matching up books and vases and the quirky knick-knacks we always wish we could keep for ourselves. But inevitably that conversation leads to us recommending that, in addition to a few new finds from the shop, our customers should pull a few items from their own treasures. And even in our home, as much as we love our personal FINE collection, these same spaces wouldn’t be complete without mixing in keepsakes or auction finds, the very reason we chose “modern, traditional, collected” as our store mantra. If we left off collected, we’d be lying about how we all truly live— particularly important, it seems, in a time when the objects of memory on our bookshelves are as close as we come to travel. In this specific space, that combination of new and old takes on a loosely academic, old library appearance, but by reserving a few spots to show off old collectibles and some family photos it feels familiar rather than stuffy. To match the cabinet and the room itself, the photos are in wood and bone frames. A newspaper clipping (which you may recognize as the Robert Frost quote on the wall in our shop) is displayed in a transparent, antiqued brass frame, along with a four leaf clover that—no joke—just blew in our door one day. Across from the photos are two baskets for storage that function as bookends for a set of old Louisa May Alcott novels that have had many different homes, including our daughter’s bedroom bookshelf when she was little. An additional triplet
of books is displayed on the next shelf down, making for a small mix of classic titles and a few new ones, soon to be read, along with a lengthy canvas print from our shop, leaning in the background. We don’t mind adding art to unconventional places, and the fiery earth tones of this print, crafted in Alabama, help sneak something eyecatching behind this cabinet’s glass doors—and give us an excuse to leave some blank space. With the collection of two specimen jars, a wicker-wrapped antique wine jug, and a heavy gold paperweight sitting opposite the print, we can appreciate giving this specific shelf some breathing room and encourage you to do the same. Sometimes an open space doesn’t need to be filled, especially it if helps maintain visual balance or keeps your “collection” from becoming “clutter.” Though it can be tempting to give everything a home, leaving an empty spot can even help save a small room from feeling closed in. The bottom shelf contains a simple statement piece of a paper mache-style bowl; we’ve kept it empty here, but any vessel of similar size could be used for storage or as an extra spot for decorating at the holidays. A strand of oversized recycled-glass beads and our quote frame are balancing with the bowl on one end, while the other side is finished with a stack of art books on various subjects and an understated artificial plant.
A vintage green demijohn bottle and two decorative iron candlesticks sit on top of the cabinet, all of which could be used elsewhere when needed but find a nice home for themselves up here in the meantime. A wood-framed leather chair and a small stool make spots for conversation or reading, and a large plant peeks around from the corner opposite, near the window, giving life to an otherwise unused spot. A good friend of ours is known for a signature quote: “Details take time.” And whether that’s in reference to dinners for a thousand guests or styling the smallest of corners in your home is irrelevant here; what’s important is that we couldn’t agree more. These details—a few layers of them here, we’ll admit—aren’t made overnight. Styling these spaces should show off finds you’ve had for years (or, in some cases, decades) in addition to the stylish new pieces you’ve sought out to finish the space. That’s a collected home.

very inviting with Courtney Ballard
As a graphic artist, I’m passionate about quality design and creating a custom experience for each of my clients. Whether the project at hand is for a brand or a bride, both involve curating personalized identities that help share an authentic, beautiful story. Often times (and sadly) one of the most personal items on a wedding or event checklist gets overlooked. From save the dates to thank you notes, your stationery communicates who you are and what your event will look and feel like. It’s quite often the first and last impression that’s given to each guest. Apart from essential information…who, what, when, where…a stationery suite shares a sense of personality and style through the choices that are made with color, pattern, messaging, illustration, and materials, helping each guest feel connected to your event. Beyond invitations and reply cards, custom paper goods can touch so many different parts of a celebration. The day of decor and signage, like programs, menus, escort cards, welcome notes, etc., should carry the same visual tone, creating a cohesive theme that’s shared across all spaces. Artful choices will stand as an irreplaceable memoir of your special day, and will undoubtably become keepsakes for you and your family. So whether your style is casual, formal, traditional, or modern, choose custom stationery! It’s a thoughtful way to invest in your wedding, adding a creative approach to products that are as original as the day they’re meant for.

Nestled perfectly downtown in the most unexpected places lies the Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Etown. Part of the newly renovated Mulberry Helm building, Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Etown offers a unique experience for wine enthusiasts around town. Their wine is locally-made using delicious juices from grapes that are imported from Germany, California, France, Austria, and Italy. Charlie Watkins, and his family, have dedicated their lives to providing the absolute best wines around town. Charlie, a retired veteran, and his daughter Tiana the General Manager have made it their mission to learn all there is to know about the winemaking process. In a large window, in the center of the place, you will see all the stainless-steel tanks that are actively making the wines that customers rave about. Tiana Watkins is responsible for the entire process of making the wines, bottling, and even creating new flavors. When talking to her about the process, you can see her eyes light up while also letting her passion for winemaking be known. Luckily, the community is welcome to visit, cork their own wines, and create their own custom labels. Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Etown also offers a unique Wine Club that ranges from $35 to $60 a month. With that, you will get two bottles of wine, complimentary wine tastings, a 10% discount, and more. When asked how they contribute and give back to the community, the response was truthful and full of meaning. They work hard to ensure that they purposely buy locally before considering anyone else. Their current goal is to work with local farmers to purchase their produce and meats to supply fresh, farm-to-table food for the public. They encourage local farmers to reach out to have their food cooked and served in the bistro. The new Head Chef, Katelynn Mason, is incredibly talented. She worked hard to change their current menu of food altogether. Her goal is to provide food that is delicious, more upscale, and pairs well with wine. “Our wines are always the main focus when planning new dishes,” Katelyn explained. They have recently finished creating their new menu, which is now available to the public. You can expect to see soups, salads, sandwiches, charcuterie boards, and 27 different wines with different tastes from around the world on the new menu. The wine menu varies from season to season to keep the menu fresh. Malari Richardson is the Assistant General Manager, Talent Manager, and Events Planner. An Elizabethtown native, Malari truly works hard to find local musicians to play at Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Etown. She also plans any events that may occur, including birthday, anniversary,
and retirement parties. The public can rent out a private room, or even the whole place, for celebrations and meetings. They currently host Trivia Days on Mondays, Sip and Paint parties every other Wednesday and various community events. As the owners of Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Etown, Charlie Watkins and his daughter Tiana Watkins make a fantastic team. When asked what they love about Elizabethtown, they both agreed that it was the people they appreciate the most. “I love the people here. They are so nice and always willing to assist,” Charlie responded. They take pride in the fact that they are part of such a historic building. Mulberry Helm was once an Elementary School and is currently being transformed into condos to accommodate travelers using AirBNB and locals interested in permanent residence. Waters Edge Winery & Bistro of Etown is located in the area that was once the old Gymnasium and Cafeteria.
Waters Edge Winery is located in the historic Mulberry-Helm Building in downtown Elizabethtown at 114 S. Mulberry Street.

One thing you will always see when it comes to the Watkins family is their drive. The wheels inside their heads are always turning, and the ideas seem to pour out. They constantly think of ways to expand and accommodate people more while also keeping up with the times. Coming soon are online delivery services, various food drives for Feeding America, and collecting toys to give back to the children in our community. Tiana is even working on creating more new wine flavors to appeal to a broader range of customers. Through their drive, intellect, and pure passion for producing unique and delicious wines, while also inhabiting a well- loved historic building, they have established a long-lasting business that our community can enjoy for years to come.

Staying Sun Safe
Ashley Kerekes, M.D., Baptist Health Hardin As a plastic surgeon, I have a lot of tools in my toolbox to address signs of aging, such as volume loss, structure problems and skin laxity. But what many people underestimate is the importance of the quality of the skin. One key way to improve skin quality is to protect it from the sun. As the weather warms, we all want to spend more time outdoors, which is great as long as we do it safely. Damage to the skin is caused by invisible ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which not only damages the skin and causes signs of aging, but is also the leading cause of skin cancer. Even small amounts of time tanning or in the sun add up over one’s lifetime. However, there are ways to get outside and avoid direct sun exposure to the skin.
BE SUNSCREEN SAVVY
The CDC recommends wearing sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher daily, even on cloudy or cool days. It is better to wear SPF 30 or greater in the summer when anticipating direct sun exposure or when you will be spending long periods of time outdoors. SPF stands for “sun protection factor” and is the number assigned to sunscreens that rate their effectiveness in blocking UV rays — the higher the SPF, the more protection provided. Check with your pediatrician when using sunscreens on infants younger than 6 months. Sunscreen should be applied liberally to the entire body when anticipating direct sun exposure. Pay special attention to areas not covered by clothing and to the nose, ears, neck, hands, feet, and lips. Apply 15 minutes before going outside. You must reapply sunscreen every two hours, after swimming and when sweating. Water-resistant sunscreen is best when you are planning to be in water, but no sunscreen is waterproof. Water-resistant sunscreens are usually effective for about 40-80 minutes of swimming, depending on the type. Don’t forget to check expiration dates. Sunscreen without an expiration date should be replaced three years from the manufactured date and even sooner if exposed to high temperatures.

ZO® Skin Health Sunscreen Available at Dr. Ashley Kerekes’ Office, Baptist Health Hardin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
My practice offers the ZO® Skin Health sunscreen line, which is one of my favorite ways to protect my skin. ZO sunscreens provide full UVA/UVB, HEV, and IR-A protection. They contain ZOX 12 complex, which has vitamins A, C, and E to help protect from free radical damage and IR-A rays. There are two types of sunscreens offered by ZO — physical or chemical.
A physical sunscreen uses minerals to scatter rays before they can penetrate the skin. There are three sunscreens made by ZO that are physical sunscreens: • Sunscreen + Primer — This is great for daily use on the face and serves as a primer before applying makeup or can be used for light coverage to get an even complexion if you do not wear makeup. This daily sunscreen contains a firming peptide as well. • Sunscreen + Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 40 — A daily-use facial sunscreen that also can be used as a touch-up powder, which is a great way to make sure you reapply throughout the day. This sunscreen powder comes in light, medium or deep shades. • Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 — A full-body sunscreen that soothes skin and minimizes inflammation. It contains titanium dioxide and zinc.
Chemical sunscreens use chemicals like avobenzone to absorb UV rays before they can penetrate the skin. ZO Daily Sheer Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 and Smart-Tone Spectrum SPF 50 are considered chemical sunscreens. • Daily Sheer Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 is a full-body sunscreen that is water- and perspiration-resistant for up to 80 minutes. It is nongreasy with a matte finish. • Smart-Tone Broad Spectrum SPF 50 can be used all over the body and uniquely blends into a wide range of skin tones.
OTHER WAYS TO STAY SAFE
If you don’t like sunscreen, or have trouble remembering to reapply, there are some other things to do to stay safe: • Seek shade when possible by being under an umbrella, tree or shelter. • Wear long-sleeved shirts and/or pants. Clothing options that provide UV protection offer even more protection. • Wear a hat. Use one with a wide brim that will shade your face, ears and neck. Hats made of tightly woven fabrics are more protective. • Wear sunglasses that block UVA and UVB rays.
ALREADY HAVE SUN DAMAGE?
If you are like many of my patients and do much better protecting yourself now, but were a sun worshipper in the past, there are still a number of things we can do to help treat that sun damage:
• • •
Wrinkle texture repair — 0.5% retinol and antioxidants improve texture, tone, fine lines, and wrinkles. Advanced radical night repair — 1% retinol also improves tone, fine lines, and wrinkles and is good for older patients with more severe damage and aging.
Hydroquinone/pigment control program
Treats moderate to severe hyperpigmentation and sun damage.
Reduces hyperpigmentation without the use of hydroquinone; useful as maintenance or when hydroquinone is not advised.
–– –– ––
In-office procedure. Expect three to five days of healing time. Pretreatment with hydroquinone or retinol is a must. You wouldn’t run a marathon without training.
Wearing sunscreen and avoiding direct sun exposure will reduce your risk of skin damage and skin cancer. If you have past sun damage, there are many available options to help treat and maintain your healthy skin. Have a sun-safe summer, and remember — trends come and go, but good skin is always in. .

THE HISTOR IC STATE THE ATER In 1942, when World War II affected every aspect of American life, the State Theater opened its doors for the first time. With the intention to provide entertainment and lightness to people’s lives while in the midst of world chaos, the State Theater proudly shone brightly on Elizabethtown’s main drag. Its first movie was “The Fleet’s In,” which starred Dorothy Lamour and William Holden. The theater continued hosting various movie showings and concerts until 1982. The final movie shown was “E.T.” Fast-forward to the late 1990s, when it became evident that the years had not been very kind to the State Theater. Thankfully, this sparked a new initiative that was put into place by the former Elizabethtown-Hardin County Heritage Council. Their mission was to restore the State Theater to its original 1940’s glory. With the finances flowing in due to private fundraising and grants, work began on the theater. The community came together to help the historic building survive. Several years later, the city of Elizabethtown acquired the building through a land swap deal. They funded all restoration and renovation work and reopened its doors to the public in 2009. The community responded enthusiastically to the reopening and has made the State Theater a staple of the quickly developing and thriving historic downtown area. The public has attended many events held at the theater, including classic movies, concerts, plays, and even comedy shows. Weddings and celebrations of all kinds are held in the WesBanco Gallery, Poplar Room, and Theater, making up the entire Historic State Theater Complex.

Over the years, Wynona Judd, Diamond Rio, The Drifters, Clint Black, Chubby Checker, and Travis Tritt have all performed at the State Theater. Hundreds of private parties, weddings, receptions, baby and bridal showers, field trips from the local schools, dance recitals, chorus groups, and band performances have also taken place inside the theater. The State Theater has hosted numerous functions for local organizations and non-profits such as The Taste of Guatemala (sponsored by the E-town Rotary Club), The Radcliff Veterans Center Concert, the annual Casa Gala (for Casa of the Heartland), Purses, Pumps, and Prevention (sponsored by Baptist Health Hardin), St. Baldricks, and the Kentucky High School Hall of Fame’s annual Induction Ceremony. There is no denying that the Historic State Theater Complex has provided a locale of art, beauty, celebration, and excitement for Elizabethtown residents while simultaneously helping those in need in our wonderful community. It has given the city of Elizabethtown a steadfast and architecturally awe-inspiring venue that will last lifetimes to come.

Hosparus Thrift Shoppe 92
C L AG E T T PH OTO G R A PH Y
Everyone loves a bargain, but did you know your purchase at the Hosparus Health Thrift Shoppe in Elizabethtown is not only a great deal, but it also makes a difference in the lives of your very own friends and neighbors? Hosparus Health Central Kentucky (HCK) is proud to help hundreds of families in the E-town area navigate the challenges of serious illness each year. We offer an extra layer of support that includes medical care, care coordination, emotional and spiritual support, all designed to help our patients get the most out of each day. We’re also a true nonprofit — thanks to our generous donors, we care for anyone who needs us, regardless of their financial situation. When you shop with us, you can count on finding high-quality, gently-used clothing and home goods at an affordable price, plus you can feel confident that the money you spend is going directly to families in your community. All proceeds from sales benefit HCK’s hospice and palliative care programs, including our Kourageous Kids pediatric services and grief counseling. Located in the Helmwood Plaza, the Thrift Shoppe has been part of the E-town community since 1992. Unlike for-profit secondhand stores, we don’t sell anything on consignment — every single item has been generously donated. We know that not everyone can afford to write a check or buy tickets to a fundraiser, so donating clothes, household accessories, and furniture you no longer need is a great way to give back in a meaningful way.
as well as modern retail-quality merchandise,” says Thrift Shoppe Manager Moira Taylor. “We’re so grateful for the generosity of donors in Elizabethtown and surrounding areas for quality donations of name-brand clothing, contemporary home decor, popular toys, variety of books and movies, and gently-used furniture and small appliances.” If you don’t want to buy or donate items, there’s another way you can support patients and families through our Shoppe — by giving the gift of your time as a volunteer. The Hosparus Health Thrift Shoppe depends on about 75 volunteers with diverse interests and backgrounds to keep it running smoothly. They support the store’s staff by helping to receive, sort, and price donations, place and straighten items on the sales floor; and assist customers. “It’s like a family at the Hosparus Health Thrift Shoppe,” says HCK Volunteer Manager Annette Jones. “We have a wonderful group of volunteers. They love keeping the Shoppe organized and putting a smile on customers’ faces. They are truly amazing, and we couldn’t do it without them!”

ISSUE 6 LAUNCH PARTY
Venue: Bluegrass Sportsplex I Planning : Goldenrod + Glory I Energizing Teas: Firefly Nutrition
Parties are the best part of the magazine in my opinion. I love bringing people together to celebrate everything our city has to offer. A more perfect place for a wellness-themed launch party doesn’t exist: The cover feature for Elizabethtown Lifestyle Issue 6 was on the Bluegrass Sportsplex itself. This event took place bright and early on a Monday morning, and instead of our standard swag bags, we upgraded to back packs for the occasions. My favorite part of the event: Firefly Nutrition on site with energizing teas. Special thanks to all of our advertisers and sponsors who make this magazine possible. I hope to see you at our next party! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram at @ElizabethtownLifestyle or subscribe to our email list for upcoming announcements.

“EVERYBODY WANTS A PLACE CLOSE BY WHERE THEY CAN GET THE BEST TREATMENT.” — Fran Harrod, Cancer Success Story
When doctors detected cancer during an annual mammogram, Fran Harrod knew traveling a long distance for treatment wasn’t an option. At the time, she was caring for her mother, who had COPD, and their rescue dog. Plus, she cherished her nearby support system of family, friends and co-workers. “When you’re going through a chemo treatment, you’re sick. No one wants to be on the road,” she said. Today, Fran calls herself “blessed” because of the skilled, compassionate team at Baptist Health Hardin who stood by her from diagnosis through recovery. “You look at life differently after going through something like this. Everything’s a little bit sweeter,” she said.” Learn more at BaptistHealth.com/CancerCare.
