DECATUR -- The Annual Cruise 11 Car and Bike Show honors veterans, but Sunday, it remembered a well-loved pastor. The event focuses on 9/11 and raises money for veterans. This year, funds will go to the American Legion Post 105.

Pastor B.G. Nevitt would have been the keynote speaker, but he died last month when a car hit his motorcycle. Instead, organizers took time Sunday to honor him.

Pastor Nevitt's wife spoke at the event. The Macon County Color Guard was on-hand. From now on, the event will be renamed "The B.G. Nevitt 9/11 Memorial."
