Co-ops honor Kentuckians who Beautify the Bluegrass 

AFTER ALL OF THE TERRIBLE weather Kentuckians have faced over the last several months, we are so excited to usher in spring at Kentucky Living

From gardeners to garden art, it’s time to shake off winter and start anew. As you spruce up your neighborhood, or notice others in your community doing their part to improve public spaces, I encourage you to nominate those projects for recognition in our annual Beautify the Bluegrass partnership with the governor’s office. 

While in past years Beautify the Bluegrass was regarded as a contest, our aim going forward is to recognize beautification efforts motivated by a desire to improve the community. The mission of electric cooperatives is to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve, as evidenced by Jackson Energy, which received the 2021 Governor’s Award. 

Check out their project and then nominate someone close to home.

Finally, as we continue to support the victims of the December tornadoes, we also would like to give a tap of a lineworker’s helmet to all the crews who helped restore power following the winter weather in early February. Kentucky dodged the worst of the ice, but crews faced challenging conditions as they worked day and night on behalf of co-op consumer-members. 

As we turn the calendar to March, we encourage you to prepare and be aware of the increased risk of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes at this time of year. Kentucky knows all too well it can happen to any of us at any time. 

Stay safe and good luck in the garden. As George Bernard Shaw wrote, “The best place to seek God is in a garden. You can dig for him there.”
