Memorial Day weekend featured a number of local events not only honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country, but also to raise money for a worthy cause. Flag-raising and retirement ceremonies were held at the Pikeville veterans memorial on Saturday, and at Annie E. Young Cemetery at Shelbiana on Monday. On Sunday, the annual “Ride For Life” motorcycle ride was held, with proceeds benefiting the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Lexington. For more photos from these events, see the inside pages of todays edition of the News-Express.
