The City of Oak Grove, Kentucky, just off Interstate 24, is located on the boundaries of Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee. We are less than four hours from Atlanta, Louisville, St. Louis, Memphis and Nashville. Oak Grove has a population of approximately 9,000 and is noted to be one of the fastest growing cities in Kentucky. Our quiet rural community is most popularly known as "The Hometown of Fort Campbell", conveniently nestled outside the gates of the 101st Airborne Division. We are definitely proud of our 101st Screaming Eagles. Oak Grove is a constantly changing mix of long-time residents and new neighbors, and whether you just arrived from Albany or Zimbabwe, you are welcome here.

Earth Day 2017
On April 11, 2017 and April 19, 2017 Marcetta, Keith and I (Shella) went to Pembroke and South Christian Elementary Schools. We taught third graders about storm water, what all the techs do for the City of Oak Grove and how pollution can affect whales. We did activities with the students and had them to watch two videos. The first video was Freddy the Fish who taught them about storm water. He talked about how grass clippings can enter the storm drain if you leave them in the yard while it rains. The best part was when the students started singing “only rain down the storm drain” with Freddy the Fish. The second video was a sing along video about how pollution can affect the ocean and why it’s important to save the ocean. I also went over bottled water vs tap water and explained that are techs take samples everyday even on weekends and holidays to ensure the tap water is safe for the City of Oak Grove. Keith also showed them a live demonstration of how exactly he takes samples and the students were so amazed that the water sample turned pink when testing for chlorine. The students then wrote down on a piece of paper what they learned that day, they wrote down only rain down the storm drain, how techs make sure the water is safe for them and how whales can accidently eat trash if they don’t pick up after themselves. The only two things I think should change next year is perhaps taking a live video of the techs fixing a water leak since the students were so amazed by the pictures and had a lot of questions about how it works. The second thing is instead of doing coloring contests maybe just pick grand winners over the papers they write since every student was involved.
