This Week's Latest News!

Greetings Pleasant Green Family,

The LORD [is] gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy." Psalms 145:8

  • Happy Birthday to HPGMBC Family members, who are 70 Years Old or Older and are celebrating their special day in the month of September: Sisters Patricia Brown, Katherine Burns, Pauline Cunningham, Patricia Hayden, Patricia Leavell, Willa Lewis, Delores Spencer, and Cleopatra Washington and Brother Jackie Cunningham. (If a member who is celebrating a 70th or greater Birthday in September and their name is omitted from the above list, please call (859) 254- 7387 to give us the name. Thank you.)
  • Our prayer is that all will have a safe Labor Day Weekend. Labor Day was created by the Labor movement in the late nineteenth century, and became a federal holiday in 1894. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The idea of a holiday for the “working man” caught on in many areas across the United States, with many states passing legislation recognizing it. According to one school of thought, Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday in 1882 while he served as secretary of the Central Labor Union of New York. Others would argue that it was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire in May of 1882. Peter McGuire was general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor. No matter who originated the Labor Day celebration, enjoy your Labor Day, wear your MASK and be Safe!  (Source: U. S. Department of Labor)
  • The second week of Fayette County Public School year has been completed and hopefully students, parents, and guardians survived. I am sure that teachers, students, parents, and guardians are all happy to have a Labor Day break from  Non-Traditional Learning (NTL) (i.e., using computers for school work from home). There have been reports from parents and guardians of Chromebook/computer problems, Zoom issues, and Internet stability problems. Click HERE for helpful information for both NTL process description and for  NTL technical assistance. If your child is having difficulty, do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher.  Remember that your child's teacher cannot help, if you don't tell them about your child's problem. 
  • The importance of VOTING in the upcoming General Election cannot be underestimated.  The future or OUR Nation is dependent on ALL of us who are eligible to exercise OUR right to VOTE on November 8th. Each of us should become a Committee of one to reach out to at least 10 others and encourage them to REGISTER and to VOTE their conscience at the polls in November.  Every VOTE counts! (See more information on Absentee Ballots below)
  • With the COVID-19 Infections and deaths still increasing, it is so very important for us to continue to observe the CDC Guidelines :

    • wear face masks when in public (Mandatory in Kentucky and is being extended on a 30 day basis until the spread is under control)

    2020 Kentucky General  Election Plan

    Absentee voting:

    In Kentucky, any voter of any age or health condition who believes they are at risk of COVID-19 can vote absentee ballot. Eligibility to vote absentee also extends to voters who are in contact with such vulnerable voters.

    For those who plan to use the absentee voting option, Kentucky will be launching an online portal late next week so voters can request a ballot by mail. Ballots can be requested on the portal through Oct. 9.

    Mail ballots will need to be postmarked by Election Day on Nov. 3. They will need to be received by Nov. 6, officials said.

    Elections officials also said drop boxes will be available for residents to return their ballots if they are concerned about postal delays. County clerks will determine those locations.


    The early-voting period across Kentucky will begin Oct. 13. It will also last for three weeks before the election and include Saturday voting for at least four hours.

    According to state officials, every county clerk will provide a location for safe in-person voting. State election officials stress that early-voting is not absentee voting. Any Kentuckian can vote early for any reason.

    Election Day:

    It will be up to county election officials to decide election sites on Nov. 3. Those county officials will have to have their plans approved by the secretary of state and governor's offices.

    Voters in each county will see, again, a reduction in polling places. But the state hopes to offset any concerns by requiring each county to set up at least one "voting super-center," much like the Expo Center was for Jefferson County during the June primary.

    Anyone from the particular county can vote at the super-center, regardless of precinct.

    Voter identification:

    Kentuckians who have been unable to get a driver's license or photo ID because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and because their clerk's office was closed, can sign a document explaining these issues and cast their ballot.
