I just finished a nice conversation with Karla Sefcak, who is stepping down from her leadership positions with the Garrard County Solid Waste Committee and the annual Party on the Square.
Karla said she is needing to spend more time at home and taking care of her husband, Gary. “I can’t still physically do what I’ve been doing,” she told me. “I’ve not dropped off the earth; it’s just I really need to re-prioritize.”
Karla has run the Party on the Square since it began. This coming 2011 party will be the fifth year for the anti-littering event. During those five years, it’s blossomed from a rather small gathering to a large, Lancaster-Square-filling event that draws more than a thousand people.
Karla said she’ll still be active in the Garrard County community, and she’ll still use her networks of friends, her blogs and her Facebook groups to help inform everyone about upcoming events.
Ever since I started as Garrard County reporter for the Advocate-Messenger a year and a half ago, Karla has been a continual source of good story ideas, so I have appreciated what she does for the county and for me.
Full story in tomorrow’s Advocate-Messenger.
