LOBSTER FEST 2021 is Canceled
Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience and disappointment, but we will be canceling our 14th Annual Lobster Fest, due to COVID-19. As you know, the Delta variant has wreaked havoc on our community, and we appreciate you understanding that we decided to cancel the event.
Next year’s event is Saturday, August 13th2022, at the Bellefonte Country Club at 6:30 pm., in the hope that the pandemic has subsided. Please mark your calendars for next year’s date.
As mentioned in the previous letter, since we have decided to cancel the event, we will offer three options:
Donate the sponsorship or payment to Safe Harbor.
Leave the sponsorship, payment and reservation with Safe Harbor and put towards next year’s Lobster Fest which is planned for August 13, 2022.
Ask for a refund, in which case we will be happy to return your donation or payment.
Whatever you decide is perfectly acceptable and we will make the transaction once we hear back from you. You may ask for a refund if our next year’s date is not acceptable, please notify Beth Lunsford or Tiffanie Buckner at 606-329-9304.
We are tremendously grateful for your generosity on behalf of our families and appreciate your understanding during these ever changing and challenging times.
With much appreciation,
Susan Fried, Past President

Shop & Share
This year’s Shop & Share is scheduled for Saturday, May 8th.
Shop and Share is organized by the First Lady’s Office and Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence to support emergency shelters across the state. Every item collected at our local Kroger stores helps survivors at Safe Harbor.
Shop & Share is a big day for our organization. And lots and lots of community and volunteer support makes it possible! Your support will help stock our shelter supplies for almost a year.
This year will look a little different because of social-distancing during the pandemic. Volunteers at Kroger locations won’t be able to meet shoppers at the door to hand out our wish list, but they’ll have plenty of copies available at a table near the entrance.
Our wish list includes canned soup, tuna, peanut butter, jelly, condiments, paper towels, diapers, and more. Some shoppers donate a couple of items, while others are inspired to donate more.
We're currently seeking volunteers-community groups, work groups, faith groups, and individuals to help on May 8th from 9am-5pm to help distribute shopping lists, answer shopper questions, load and sort donations. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions about Shop & Share contact Tiffanie Buckner at 606-329-9304.
Shop & Share was initiated by former First Lady Jane Beshear.
Cornerstone Awards(1,000 Women and Men Campaign
Every year we honor individuals who have been instrumental in the organization’s growth during the past 38 years. The 1,000 Women (and Men) Campaign asks residents to make a financial pledge to help continue vital services, such as expanded substance abuse education and care for residents and enhanced children’s programs and counseling. Funds will assist with continued renovation work across Safe Harbor’s campus. Pledges may be in the form of a one-time gift or may be spread out over a period of years.
