    • Relay for Life of Morgan County

    • Relay for Life of Morgan County was held Friday, June 21-Saturday, June 22. With the theme "Cancer is not a game," this year's event was held at the downtown square in Versailles. Twelve teams participated in the event, raising funds for the American Cancer Society and its programs and support groups for local cancer patients. The community walk honors survivors and caregivers of cancer patients and remembers those we’ve lost to cancer. The event rallies the community and individuals to fight back against the disease. The overnight event reflects the journey to beat cancer from diagnosis and the dark time of treatment to dawn and the defeat of the disease. This year's event was dedicated to Jay Fisher who passed away from cancer in November. Fisher was a longtime respected leader in Morgan County. He was a well-known radio personality and owner of KS95 in Versailles as well as being presiding commissioner of Morgan County at the time of his death.
