Richmond Kiwanis Club Participates in Safety City Ground Breaking

Following the ceremony five members of the Richmond Kiwanis Club posed with an architectural design of the Madison County Safety City. Included in the photo are (l. to r.) Danny Damrel, secretary; Dr. Robert Nayle; Brenda Blankenship, treasurer; Dr. Glen Kleine, president; and Dr. Larry Bobbert

One of the principal individuals involved in the design and approval of Safety City was Phillis Adams, Head Start Director for Kentucky River Foothills and the Children - Priority One Chairman for the Richmond Kiwanis Club. She took Maj. Kirby to an existing Safety City and planted the seed for its development. Behind Phillis is a billboard reading "Make Every Day Special for Children." Those signs around Madison County are another or her projects, and one that has the financial support of the Richmond Kiwanis Club.

A variety of agencies in Madison County were represented at the ground breaking for the Madison County Safety City project scheduled to be completed next June. Included in the group was the Madison County Judge Executive Kent Clark, and both the Berea and Richmond city majors. Dr. Glen Kleine, President of the Richmond Kiwanis Club, is seen wielding a shovel second from left.
