William Whitley House Friends Group Organization 
With the busy season approaching, we would like to host a meeting to see how many of our friends would be interested in organizing a “Friends of the William Whitley House”. The group would be willing to help with the mission and goals of the Park for 2017 and beyond. I know there are many people that have a passion for the William Whitley House with memories of visiting the park for a reunion, picnic, school group or maybe a wedding. We will be having a meeting at the park Thursday, February 23 at 6:30 PM at the park office to discuss the organization of the Friends Group. I hope we will have a large interested crowd who would like to be involved in assisting and promoting their local Kentucky State Park. If you need more information, please call the park at (606) 355- 2881.
