This year is the Thirteenth Anniversary of the 400 Mile Sale across Kentucky. From Thursday June 2nd through Sunday June 5th, hundreds of yard sales will set up all along historic U.S. 68.
The Servant Heart Farm along US 68 near Wilmore will again be the official Jessamine County Sale site. More than 50 vendors participated last year selling antiques, collectibles, home goods, crafts and “stuff.” For a vendor application and/or information click here or stop by Wilmore City Hall. Food will be sold on site. For information on the entire route go to www.400mile.com and click on yard sale locations to learn about other sales and some of the items people will be selling.
The Sale is a great way to meet people from all over and a wonderful fundraising opportunity for youth groups, Scouts, sports teams, non-profits, churches, as well as individuals. And it’s a shopper’s delight!
And we extend a big “Thank You!” to Joe and Cheryl Lycan for allowing Jessamine County to again have the Sale on their Servant Heart Farm.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. This week is a time to honor officers who have fallen in the line of duty. Six officers from Kentucky are listed on the “roll call” for line of duty deaths in 2015.
It’s also a perfect opportunity to show our appreciation to our local law enforcement officers who serve in Wilmore, Nicholasville and Jessamine County. A few suggestions are:
• Send a card of support
• Give a friendly wave
• Share a story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media or local newspaper
• Display a blue light on porch this week – blue is symbolic of peace
•Thank them in person for helping to protect this community
Thank you for helping us honor our law enforcement officers!
