From Members:


LEXINGTON, Ky. _ Friday is cleanup day at the University of Kentucky’s FarmHouse Fraternity on Rose Lane, and the place hummed with vacuum cleaners overlaid on the dulcet tones of Lynyrd Skynryd and the occasional ‘thwack’ of a pool ball. Having finished his duties, fraternity member Josh Banks was playing pool in the big TV room. It’s his favorite thing to do in his favorite place to be, at the fraternity with his friends and brothers. For FarmHouse, it was a typical day. For fraternity life in the United States, it was anything but. An AP Member Exchange.
