KSD 2012 Pancake Social – Photos by KCDHH

Kentucky Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing recently posted photos of 2012 Pancake Social three hours ago.  It is on their Facebook. Make sure you visit there, so you can look at the amazing photos. Good to see some familiar faces there.

To me,  it looked like it was a huge success. A lot of people were there. I wish I was there. I will try to make it next year. 🙂

Kentucky School for the Deaf’s annual Pancake and Sausage Day

It was published on Central Kentucky News on January 31st, 2012.  Excerpt from that link below:

Kentucky School for the Deaf to hold annual Pancake and Sausage Day

Silent and live auctions will be held during event

January 31, 2012

Girls in Tech Ed class at Kentucky School for the Deaf repaired and refinished this Victorian oak bench that was once used in Kerr Hall Chapel at KSD. The bench is one of several items available at a live auction during KSD's annual Pancake and Sausage Day Friday.

**Hover that photo will appear a description of it**

Kentucky School for the Deaf’s annual Pancake and Sausage Day begins 6:30 a.m. Friday.

The event, which kicks off KSD’s Winter Homecoming festivities, will last until 1:30 p.m. Meals cost $5 each.

Thirty-two years ago a Kentucky School for the Deaf parent Sue Gill organized the first KSD Pancake and Sausage Day as a school fundraiser. Gill continued organizing the major fundraising event until 1998, when it was dropped.

Six years later, in 2004, KSD staff member Rhonda Bodner took charge and the tradition resumed. A KSD staff committee is in charge this year.

The Pancake and Sausage Day will include a silent auction featuring theme baskets and donated items by KSD supporters, including Centre College, Sorenson Communications, GoGo Gorillas, Dr. Clay Warren, Lowrey Jackson and others.

Two baskets for UK and U-of-L supporters include basketball tickets. Other themes include new baby, movies and munchies, Valentine’s sweethearts, and rest and relaxation. Silent auction bids can be placed until 1:30 p.m.

At 1:30 p.m., Betsy Wilson and Tony Wilson of CENTURY 21/Wilson Realty and Auction Co. in Danville will conduct a live auction. Items to be auctioned include a limited-edition framed print donated by Keeneland; two Kentucky State Park golf packages; a weekend at the Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington including two rounds of golf and breakfast; artwork from Pat Hays, a Lucky Dog BBQ party for 30, prepared and delivered; an Indianapolis Colts collection signed by Jacob Tamme; and a landscape design by Tim Barringer.

Carpentry and woodworking students under Jay Cloud’s direction created ornamental, unusual handcrafted live auction items. They include a storage bench made from materials salvaged from old Lee Hall (razed in 2010); a multipaned mirror created from an old Lee window; and an antique ornamental oak bench with wrought iron legs from Kerr Hall (razed in the 1970s).

Raffle tickets can be purchased ahead of time or at the door on Friday for $1 each. Hourly drawings will be held for prizes such as $100, an HD TV or a Kindle Fire.  Ticket holders do not have to be present to win raffle prizes. This year, for the first time, pancake and sausage meals will be available for carryout. Each order is $5 and includes food and drink. For carryout, call (859)  239-7017, ext. 2711 at least 30 minutes before you plan to pick up meals.

New federal law closes KSD pool

Sunday December 21, 2008

New federal law closes KSD pool


A new federal regulation meant to prevent drownings caused by swimming pool drains has pulled the plug on aquatic activities at Kentucky School for the Deaf.

Bill Melton, KSD director of operations, said the school pool was closed Friday until further notice. The school could not find approved covers large enough to fit over the pool’s two 24-inch drains, as is required by the law.

“What we were told is that we need to shut down today because we are no longer in compliance,” Melton said Friday.

The pool closure not only means that KSD students will have to do without swimming until the situation is resolved, but it could also sink the season for the Danville and Boyle County swim teams, both of which use the pool for training and hosting meets.

Danville swim coach Marc Williams could not be reached for comment, but told members of his team in an e-mail Thursday, “We are OK for Thursday and Friday practices. Beyond that, I don’t know. I’ll keep you posted.”

The new law, which became effective Saturday, is called the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act. It is named after the grandson of former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, who died in a spa at age 7 when he was pulled to the bottom by a suction drain. Another child died in similar circumstances at a Lexington pool this summer.

The KSD pool is unique among the three large indoor pools in Danville because of the size of its drains. No one is yet manufacturing approved covers large enough to fit over them, Melton said.

“You can’t just go down to the machine shop and have them made; they have to be approved by the feds,” Melton said. “If they made them, we’d have them.”

Centre College was able to order covers for the smaller drains in its pool in Boles Natatorium. The pool was drained early last week and the new covers installed on Thursday. The pool will reopen when students return from holiday break on Jan. 5, said John Cuny, Centre’s vice president of finance.

The drains at the pool at the McDowell Wellness Center were already in compliance with the law, said director Michael Matthews.

Outdoor pools have until the summer swimming season to bring their drains into compliance.

Melton said it is ironic that KSD’s pool is being closed by the new law, which is meant to make drains that operate by a suction system safer.

The KSD drain and filtering system operates by gravity, and doesn’t create much danger of pulling a swimmer down, Melton said.

The school was hoping the pool’s gravity system, plus the fact that larger drain covers are not being manufactured yet, might earn it some slack.

“We were hoping for a little bit of variance on it but it didn’t happen that way,” Melton said.

Fines can be levied for pools found out of compliance with the law, though Melton said he isn’t sure how much or who will be enforcing the law.

It might fall to the state Attorney General’s Office or local health departments, he said.
