A reception is planned for next week to honor retiring Pennyroyal Arts Council Executive Director, Carol Barta.
The Board of Directors of the Arts Council would like to invite the public to attend a retirement reception for Mrs. Barta, which is scheduled to take place at the Train Depot from 4:00 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, January 17th.
Officials say Mrs. Barta came to Hopkinsville from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 2002 when her husband, Anthony Barta, took the pastoral position at First Presbyterian Church in Hopkinsville.
Ms. Barta served as Executive Director for 7 ½ years.
Pennyroyal Arts Council offices are currently housed in the old L & N train depot located at 425 East Ninth Street.
