Join us for fun WKMS Donor Appreciation events in Hopkinsville, Murray and Paducah.

UPDATE: The donor appreciation parties in Murray & Paducah have been postponed as COVID-19 rates rise in our communities. We hope to be able to gather again safely soon.

It's been a while! So let's get together to celebrate YOU! Join us for three different FREE Donor Appreciation events in the region.

We'll begin with A Music Mixer at Casey Jones Distillery in Hopkinsville on Thursday, July 29. There will be live music with Fate + Melanie and Wayne Harper and the Kentucky Sage Band. Also free bourbon/ moonshine tasting (for those of age). Food will be available for purchase from No Way Jose’s food truck. There's also a WKMS signature drink or the chance to bottle your own bourbon for a separate cost.

Next, it's Arts & the Arboretum in Murray on Tuesday, August 3. We'll be joined by the Murray Art Guild for fun and easy hands-on activities. There will also be light snacks from Maple Street Market (home of FitMeals Murray), music by The Black Eyed Susans, and a laid back environment to visit with WKMS hosts and other listeners.

Lastly, we'll host a Trivia Night & Appreciation Party in Paducah at Dry Ground Brewing Company on Tuesday, August 10. We know you like to show off your smarts- you listen to NPR! There will be light appetizers from Mellow Mushroom, cookies from Kirchhoff’s and a special “public radio themed brew” available.

The last year has been challenging. But WKMS supporters went above and beyond with financial support to keep WKMS going during a difficult time. We genuinely thank you and hope we can celebrate with you and say "thank you" in person!

All three events are on Facebook so let us know if you plan to come. Donors will also receive a postcard in the mail soon with event details.
