The Best Costume went to Mary Ella Crane with a yellow spring dress and a straw hat with multi-color ribbons. With the singing of “My Old Kentucky Home” right down to the southern comfort food, everyone felt like they were in Kentucky…Kentucky Fried Chicken, mint juleps, mac. and cheese and the wonderful Kentucky Bourbon pecan squares.
