What's This?

The Jefferson County chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth are hard at work once again creating a lot of buzz about the good things happening in their home, the Smoketown neighborhood.

This time, they’re working in connection with Louisville’s annual Give-A-Day week of service, and alongside a number of non-profit organizations and churches in Smoketown to facilitate the “Smoketown Rising Week of Service” event. This week of events will include: service opportunities, skills shares, and community gatherings aimed at celebrating Smoketown’s 150th anniversary.
