Calling all Vietnam vets for photo shoot Saturday
Winchester will honor Vietnam War veterans at 10 a.m. Saturday with a photograph taken in front of the Clark County Courthouse. Anyone from Clark County who served in the Vietnam War era, who was born, raised or moved to Clark County, or those from Clark County who moved to other places, or were inducted into the military during the Vietnam War from other places may participate.
A few weeks after the photograph is taken, each veteran will be mailed a copy of it. Those who are unable to attend the Aug. 8 photo shoot may attend a makeup event at 10 a.m. Aug. 22. At both events, refreshments will be provided by the Hart Chapter of The Daughters of the American Revolution.
Trust for Life 5K Walk/Run planned for Aug. 22
The 2015 Trust for Life 5K Walk/Run will begin at 8 a.m. Aug. 22 in Junction City. Preregistered walkers and runners can pick up their bibs and T-shirts beginning at 7 a.m. Team Walson's Walkers will walk in memory of former Clark County Circuit Clerk Arthur M. Walson. His vision of helping people who need transplants caused the Trust for Life to be established.
All proceeds will benefit the Satterwhite Fund, which assists Kentucky transplant recipients in financial crisis. Since 2001, the fund has helped more than 540 recipients from 97 counties. Recipients have ranged from 2 months to 70 years old.
Parking is free at Junction City Elementary School and Park. Awards will be given for top winners and top three in every age group for men and women. Awards are also given for the largest team and most creative team.
Participants may register online at Active.com; search for Trust for Life 5K Walk/Run. The cost is $35.
