We are fortunate in this part of the world to be the inheritors of a rich catalog of magnificent dry stone masonry walls and structures that have stood for centuries. They line our roads and cemeteries, bear the weight of our structures, and serve so many other purposes. It is therefore appropriate that we have invited Stuart Joynt, Winchester stone mason and operator of Lost Art Stone Masonry to be the presenter for our February Pot Luck History Supper. Stuart has developed quite a reputation for his preservation work and his involvement with the Kentucky Dry Stone Conservancy. He will be treating us to a talk about the history of stone masonry in the Bluegrass, as well as sharing his experiences in work he has done and the projects in which he has participated. Bring a dish and join us for this program; it is free and open to the public. You may also come at 6:50 PM if you would prefer not to enjoy the potluck, but let us know.
