Christmas Party for Richmond Families at YMCA

Santa hears the wish list of Richmond children at YMCA-Richmond Kiwanis Christmas Party. Glen Kleine, Lt. Gov. of K-T Kiwanis Division 9, served as Santa. Click here to see photos of YMCA Christmas Party for Special Families.

Little Davy Harkleroad had a special request of Santa after the little kids finished. He asked for a successful 2004 Roadblock - and also suggested that Santa set spending limits on Tammy at the next Kiwanis auction.

Piddle Johnson, President of the Richmond Kiwanis Club, was all smiles at the YMCA Christmas party.

Jason Eberle Speaks About Golf

Jason Eberle, the Golf Pro at the Gibson Bay Golf Course spoke about golf in Madison County and the importance of a vigerous youth golf program on November 11. He said there are seven golf courses in Madison County and they need a total of 200,000 rounds each year to make them profitable. He said an active youth program is vital to making that happen in the county.  He also discussed handicapped golf and specialized golf courses for small children and seniors.
