About WeWannaPlay.org

WeWannaPlay, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization.

An ever increasing trend is happening nationwide in youth sports. At each level of these sports, a disparity grows with a noticeable and proven decline of participation by those that are financially at a disadvantage. It is the mission of our group to help stop and change this decline by helping monetarily offset some of these costs at both the middle and high school level.

While we do this, we must develop and utilize aid distribution measures that remove ambiguity, stop politics, and limit or negate any knowledge of the recipients. We also pledge to be an open organization, ready for any scrutiny either by an outside organization or interested individuals. All meeting records and financial statements are readily available upon request.

Our highest pledge is to the students themselves that we as an organization will work tirelessly to make sports involvement equal to all who wish to participate.

Telling the big story of Kentucky’s small-town capital city

In November of 2004, the Capital City Museum opened its doors to the public. Housed in a 150 year old building that represents all that is left of the Capital Hotel, which burned in 1917, the museum is a large room filled with history and character. There are plenty of details to explore, with exhibits painting a vivid picture of both political and personal life in Kentucky over the past 200 years.

The Capital City Museum is open from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Saturday

Admission to the museum is free.
