Old Friends Farm, 1841 Paynes Depot Rd., Georgetown, KY 40324
Join us Memorial Day as we pay tribute to some very special Thoroughbred Champions with a commemorative service for our retirees that have passed away in the last year. "It's an honor to pay tribute to these great athletes," said Old Friends founder and President Michael Blowen. "Old Friends is an assisted living facility and we specialize in elder care. The only down side of the job is when they pass. But we try to treat them with the dignity they deserve both in life and in death."
