Planners of the “Last Outlaw Revival on the Creek,” slated for August 27, 28 & 29 at the Get Together Picnic Grounds on Kings Creek will have to wait for the Hancock County Commission to send a letter to the Alcohol Beverage Control Commission stating they have no problem with the event prior to proceeding with their plans.
Misty Ash dba Shooterz is listed as the entity holding the event. Ash is holding a similar event August 13 – 15 at the Picnic Grounds and Commissioners are opting wait and see if that event generates any problems prior to giving their stamp of approval to the August 26, 27 & 28 event. The Commission’s next regular meeting is August 26 and since the alcohol permit for the event needs to be approved by the ABCC, the delay may result in approval not being granted in time for the event.
While the event has already been advertised, Commissioner Jeff Davis said the organizers need to send the request to the commissioners in a fair amount of time.
A presentation to the Commission was also heard from Freedom Homes, a residential recovery home for females. Josh Lytle of the Family Care Ministries told Commissioners that one home is located on Pyramus Road in Chester and another in East Liverpool. The Hancock County site provides a six-week residential care for recovering addicts and also houses training and office space. The program is faith-based and funds the care through donations.
