Rebuilding A Nation was born out of years of prayer and a desire to contribute in some way to the enormous needs that exist in the country of the founders’ origin, Ethiopia. Makeda and Zewdu’s desire to provide educational opportunities for children in Ethiopia were born, in great part, from their experience of raising three daughters in America. Makeda and Zewdu did their best to expose their children to all educational resources possible, including public libraries, nature centers, museums, parks, and zoos. Thanks to the early educational interventions and stimulation their children received, Makeda and Zewdu began to notice how much their daughters loved learning, reading, and exploring the world around them. They saw firsthand how the interventions they implemented, along with hard work and dedication, led their children to some of the best schools in the country.
2020 PARADE CANCELLED After much discussion, it is with great sadness that I must tell you that this year’s Chamber Christmas Parade has been cancelled. After consulting with The City of Somerset, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, Lake Cumberland Health Department and numerous local business leaders, the decision was made to suspend this year’s parade. We know that many in our community look forward each year to participating. The decision to cancel was difficult but based on our mission to keep our community safe. We will be providing full refunds for all people currently registered. Expect your checks sometime within the next few weeks. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We look forward to celebrating with all of you at next year’s parade. Please help us spread the word.
