Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Edmonson County Clerk Kevin M. Alexander has announced that the Kentucky Department of Transportation has released a new license plate, “End Alzheimer’s”, that is now available for purchase in the County Clerk’s office.
The plate, featuring a forget-me-not flower with a purple background and the words “Honor. Remember. Care” is the first Alzheimer’s speciality plate in the United States.
“A lot of people throughout the state have worked very hard to make this plate a realization” Alexander said. “Alzheimer’s has affected many families throughout the commonwealth, upwards to 70,000 people I read just the other day. I certainly hope this plate will make more people aware of this disease.”
The purchase of the Alzheimer’s license plate can be made at any time (although prorated fees may be incurred) or when you typically receive your annual renewal card. The plate renews each year in the licensee’s birth month. The plate is $44.00 to purchase.
