  • Relay for Life to Host Bike Event

    With LaRue County Relay for Life less than three months away, a new event has been added to promote family participation and healthy activities with the Crusin’ for a Cure Bike Race.

    According to Kathy Ross, one of the coordinators of the event, the idea came about after the popular Tour de LaRue was canceled last fall.

    “So many families enjoyed this event and we just hated to see it die,” Ross said. “We don’t have the six-mile route, but we do have a three mile and a kiddie loop. If we are successful, maybe we can expand.”

    Most of the former teachers at Buffalo and Magnolia elementary schools who moved to Abraham Lincoln Elementary when the schools consolidated spoke of the small family atmosphere of their former schools.

    Darcy Pruitt, who taught at Buffalo, said, “The teachers knew all the students, the students’ parents and/or grandparents, and the students’ siblings. One teacher could get the opportunity to have every child in a household as his or her student.”
