kNOwMORE FUN: Happy Hours Celebrate Great Causes

The Lexington Calendar Project is a program that is designed to help bring together businesses & non-profits. These fun and informal events help engage businesses and shed light on the local non-profits in the Lexington area. The June 2015 Lexington Calendar Project hosted events for the Lexington Hearing & Speech Center and The Lexington Habitat for Humanity.

The Lexington Hearing & Speech Center is a non-profit school that was founded in 1960 to help children with hearing loss. Thriving after 55 years of education, they now help children with speech language delays as well. They also help families financially that are burdened with the cost of their children’s speech and language therapy, schooling and tuition costs, as well audiology costs

kNOwMORE WATER: The Licking River

April 2015


Our Licking River story is a special follow-up to the two-part series on Nonprofits & Water. We will take a journey on the 300+ mile long river accompanied by the words and voice of longtime Lexington Herald Leader journalist, Andy Mead. Along the way we will explore the history of the river, visit some of its unique points of interest and learn about its current environmental status. We will also learn about the non-profit organizations that help maintain and sustain it.

The Licking River was a prominent transportation passageway for norther Indian tribes and later, the first colonial settlers from North Carolina, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The river is now used used as a recreational spot for fishing, boating, and swimming.

In July of 2014, the Licking River Water Trail Alliance was established to provide navigable water trails along the river and its major feeder streams. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to enhancing the recreational areas of the river as well as promoting river safety and education
