Feast 1999 in Butler State Park, Kentucky
Houston & Dolly Holland, George & Pam Dewey, Norman & Marleen Edwards and other brethren will be hosting a Feast of Tabernacles site at Butler State Park, Kentucky. The principles expounded in the front page article of this issue will be applied at this Feast. We hope it will be an event that will be enjoyable as well as spiritually profitable to every member of the family.
Butler State Park is located a few miles off of I-71, half way between Cincinnati, Ohio and Louisville Kentucky. Immediately nearby is the Ohio river, which is the border between Kentucky and Indiana. The hall will hold about 300 people, and several other rooms will be available for smaller studies and get-togethers. The hall contains a big kitchen as well as dining tables—we may cook for ourselves or have meals catered for $5.25 each. Facilities for many group activities are available at the park and in the surrounding area.
All of the details have not been worked out yet, but they will be printed in Servants’ News as they are finalized. We realize that not everyone benefits from every activity, so we will attempt to arrange for a variety of them. Anyone wishing to help plan this Feast should contact Servants’ News at their earliest convenience.
A variety of accommodations are available, both at the State Park and in motels a few miles away. All prices listed here include tax. The State Park offers lodge rooms at $57.54 for double occupancy, 1-bedroom cottages with kitchens at $79.81, and a few larger cottages with kitchens for $91 to $130 per night. Only a limited number of State Park rooms are available for the entire time of the Feast. (The Park already has many weekend reservations for Sept 24-25.) If you would like to assure yourself a state park room now, mention that you are with the "Feast of Tabernacles" when you make your reservation. The reservation number is 800-325-0078.
There is ample additional lodging at four modern motels less than three miles away. Cost per room per night including tax is as follows:
Days’ Inn, 502-732-9301 $53.50
Super 8 Motel, 502-732-0252 $53.50
Hampton Inn, 502-732-0700 $60.00
Holiday Inn, 502-732-6661 $57.87
If any extended family or other larger groups of 20-30 are interested in attending this Feast, a nearby camp has two heated lodges available for $175 per night. One lodge sleeps 20, the other 30. Please contact Servants’ News as soon as possible if you are interested.
Camping, including RV hookups, is available on a first-come, first-served basis at the State Park for $12 per night. Since campgrounds are almost never full during the week, a site can virtually be assured by either arriving early Friday morning or asking someone else who is arriving early to reserve it for you.
We are also investigating other low-cost lodging in the area. We do not want anyone to miss the Feast if they want to come! We hope you will begin now to physically and spiritually prepare for your Feast of 1999! &
