Thanks for posting, Michelle. That looks really interesting.

Do you know any more about the exact times of the Saturday and Sunday events?

Lois - Thanks so much! My brother catches all of the catfish, about 100 lbs and fries it. I do most of the sides. We have folks from 6+ states that come for the weekend. Hope to see you!

Great! Now, another question! Is it expected that visitors stay for the entire event? Or could you drop in for an hour or two without seeming rude?

Just come and stay as long as you want to any of the events. You don't even have to sing! We have folks that are curious come in for a few minutes and listen all the time. If you do come by, please ask for me. Everyone will know who I am.

Keep those questions coming!

If I'm coming, I'm singing! :lol:

I hope Mary and I won't be too busy. I'd really like to see what this is like, Michelle. Thanks again for posting.

So you get off I-71 Crestwood exit, but go north, the opposite direction from Crestwood, and you'll see the church pretty soon?

Correct. Coming from Louisville, take exit 14 and turn left (look for the yellow & black sign.) The church will be on your left in around 1.5 miles. There is a pond, an old stone church and a newer church next to it. It will be on the church sign.
