The 4BS Senior Adults Group from First Baptist Church, 32 E. Lexington Ave., traveled to Liberty, county seat of Casey County, on July 8.
Casey County, located in south central Kentucky, is one of the fastest growing counties in the state outside of the “Golden Triangle.”
It was established in 1806, and is named for Col. William Casey, an early Kentucky pioneer and great-grandfather of Samuel L. Clemens, better known as Mark Twain. Liberty was named for one of the values of the Revolutionary War veterans’ new country. The area is recognized for its unique topography — the “knobs,” its Amish and Mennonite communities, the Casey County Apple Festival and, most recently, the Central Kentucky Ag/Expo Center. One can, indeed, enjoy rural life within driving distance of emerging urban areas.
The group’s luncheon destination was the Bread of Life Cafe, a restaurant in Liberty that feeds thousands of hungry visitors every week. This restaurant, with its country cooking buffet, signature homemade yeast rolls, popular Saturday morning breakfast bar, fudge and gift shop, is an outward testimony to the love of the late Sandra Tucker and her husband, Jerry “Dad” Tucker.
