Walmart helps recognize Kentucky National Guard

Pig Pie contest to raise money for memorial



With a goal of $100,000 set for construction of the memorial, the London store employees are hoping for a good turnout this Saturday.

“We would love to reach our goal with the cookout,” Fields said. “Everything we raise will go toward the memorial fund.”

The memorial will be constructed at the entrance to Boone National Guard Center in Frankfort. In the center of the memorial will be a black marble monument in the shape of the state of Kentucky. The names of fallen National Guard members who died in the line of duty will be engraved on the memorial. Individuals wishing to contribute to the memorial may purchase a paver that will be laid around the circular structure.
