What began as a softball team reunion in 2006 has evolved into an annual fundraiser event for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Crusade for Children.
Event coordinator Tommy “Chief” Locke said the idea stemmed after the first ever softball reunion held at Sportsman’s Lake. After about 25 years of coaching men’s softball teams, Locke found it appropriate to hold a reunion of sorts to get everyone and their families together in one place.
Chase Puyear and Clay Rogers spent their early dismissal day Friday picking up trash along the side of Keith Road. The road starts across from LaRue County Golf Course and goes to KY 61 and runs beside the National Park walking trails and picnic area. They were assisted by their siblings, Bailey Rogers and Bryson Puyear.
Three people received pins from the American Red Cross in recognition of the amount of blood they have donated over the years. Jane Reed, 1 gallon; Chad Puyear, 1 gallon; and Denny Duggins, 11 gallons.
