Judge Executive Wil Cannon was humbled by the large crowd that attended today's annual Memorial Day Ceremony in the courtyard of the Edmonson County Courthouse. Cannon, an Army veteran, was master of ceremonies for today's event that was also a dedication of the newly constructed memorial wall that Cannon proposed almost a year ago.
"To see a crowd this big is a great thing," he said. "I'm proud to live in Edmonson County where citizens care for and remember veterans."
Bro. Jerry Patton gave the invocation after Boy Scout Troop 597 presented colors at today's event. Cannon said he was proud to be the Judge Executive where there were Godly people. "Veterans fought and died to give us the right to worship God in the way we see fit and all the other freedoms we enjoy today."
Guest speakers included General Dan Cherry, Penny Saltsman, Maurita Miller, and Rep. Michael Lee Meredith.
