WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (9/4/13) - The small community of Poole will host its twenty-fifth annual Poole Harvest Daze this weekend.
The festival committee was originally founded in 1988 when a group of citizens met to discuss establishing a community fund which could be available to persons who experience emergency situations such as burned-out homes, long- term illnesses or debilitating accidents.
Poole Harvest Daze, annually on the weekend after Labor Day, now marks the kickoff of Webster County’s fall festival season. Poole Harvest Daze has continued to refine and expand its festival activities, but the heart of the founder’s original mission is still beating as strong today as ever.
“We use the money we raise to help those in the Poole community who have suffered a catastrophic lose due to fire, illness or other circumstances,” said Jason Whitfield, one of the event’s organizers. “Our slogan is “Help us help others’.”
