Lawrence County Residents Social Distance During Labor Day Weekend

(LAWRENCE CO.) – The weather over the Labor Day weekend allowed many residents to take advantage of social distancing activities.

Many could be found fishing, golfing, swimming, motorcycle riding, and participating in other inexpensive family activities that followed the suggested social distancing guidelines.

One of the annual events that normally would take place over the Labor Day weekend was the Claude Atkins Memorial Classic.

However, since this large event did not take place, many took to the links and played at the 18-hole Otis Park Golf Course.

“We had over 75-100 people come each day to play at the Otis Park Golf Course over this Labor Day weekend. Some came all the way from Michigan to play. After playing their round of golf they complemented our golf course as being a very clean and beautiful place to play,” said Jim Delaney who worked the last couple days at the course.

Many people were seen taking a motorcycle ride from Bedford and down through Shoals on State Road 450.

Anglers found their way to many lakes, creeks, and rivers located throughout the county. The anglers used banks and boats to try to find the perfect catch.

Bedford residents cooled off from the warm temperatures and found their way to Leatherwood Creek to take a break from the heat, soaking in one of the summer’s favorite past times.

The Lawrence County Cancer Patient Services Car Show was a huge hit, with many taking a look at a variety of cars, trucks, motorcycles, tractors, and much more during the event which takes place the first Saturday in September at the Bedford Ford Lincoln Chrysler dealership in Bedford.

Daviess-Martin County REMC employees was planning on working the picket line this weekend after the IBEW Local authorized a strike Friday. However, by Saturday afternoon Daviess-Martin County REMC notified everyone that an agreement was reached.
