Thanks for respect shown by teen
In this day and age, manners and respect seem to be a thing of the past, so I just wanted to publicly commend Justin Stacy, a senior at George Rogers Clark High School and his family. Although I have never met him, I was very touched by the respect I recently witnessed from this young man.
Justin was walking to his vehicle after school one afternoon a couple of weeks ago when a funeral procession that I was a part of drove passed him. Justin stopped and removed his hat to pay respect to the passing funeral procession.
Thank you, Justin!
Keep up the good work. You seem to be a fine young man, and I was very proud of you that day.
Enjoyed Brooks Place dinner theatre
I attended the Mystery Dinner Theatre event “A Plot of Murder” at Brooks Place Friday, and wanted to let everyone know what a neat event that was.
If there is another one, I highly recommend it. I had eaten at Brooks Place once before with a friend and have said often that the food and service there is as good as you will get in any restuarant in Lexington. It is a wonderful place run by dedicated employees.
The play was just plain fun. The George Rogers Clark High School theatre group did a great job. I heard many laughs during the show and had fun afterwards bragging that I guessed the killer. It seemed like a shame that there was only one performance.
The company we had at our table were very interesting people that we could have talked to all night. I was a little worried that the turnout might not be as much as was hoped for, but it looked like every seat in the house was full. I hope they do other similar events in the future with multiple shows so more people can enjoy it.
Whoever came up with the idea deserves a pat on the back. From what I saw, it was great for all involved.
Thanks to Mayfield for Honor Flight
It was such a wonderful feeling, the articles in The Winchester Sun and on television concerning the dream trip for Mr. Jay Warden. The response of the community and the offers to make this dream a reality, was so heart-warming.
The trip to see the memorial honoring their service is something they will always treasure, and they will never forget. These veterans waited patiently for many years before they were recognized with a memorial honoring their service and sacrifices.
It is a beautiful memorial, and I am certain it brought back many memories, both good and bad, and no doubt they were recalled and shared as they met and talked with their comrades in arms.
These veterans deserve to be called heroes, and the ones who came back will say that they do not feel they are heroes, but that the ones who they left behind were the heroes. To me, they all are heroes.
Donna Mayfield, I thank you. Without you love, respect and caring for veterans, especially the World War II veterans, this Honor Flight for veterans from Clark County would not have have happened, and many of them would not have had the opportunity to see their memorial. I know that all who were able to do this Honor Flight, appreciate what you have done.
