In the photo are Paden City residents Merle and Sharon Lemasters holding a Wetzel Chronicle newspaper at the Kentucky Derby. Merle and Sharon will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this month. The trip was an anniversary and combined 70th birthday present for Merle.
Other family members that went to the Derby included their son Jeff Lemasters, granddaughter Alex Lemasters, daughter Lisa Walker, and son- in-law Mark Walker.
This was a trip a life-long dream for the Lemasters family that they wanted to check-off on their "Bucket List."
