On any given day, you can find volunteers at The Hangout at The Ville cooking up some burgers, hotdogs, or smoked bologna. You may even hear some live music when you walk through the doors. One thing that you'll ALWAYS see and hear is children of all ages laughing, playing, and having the time of their lives. Why? Because this is the coolest place to hang out in downtown Fordsville. Here's a look inside!

Barb Birgy for WBKR

When I was at Fordsville Days a few weeks ago I ran into my good friend Jeff Fuqua. He was so excited to show me his latest venture, and I couldn't wait to check it out. It's called The Hangout at The Ville and it's a pretty special place. When Jeff saw area teens walking the streets at all hours with people that they shouldn’t be walking with, he knew something needed to be done. With the help of the community, the new activity center was born.
