Fifteen Circle K members and two sponsors from Averno College attended the March 25th meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Richmond. These girls devoted their spring break (March 23 through 28) working with the Madison County Habitat for Humanity building various structures. Averno College is a four-year, liberal arts, independent, Catholic college for women located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their Circle K Club is located in the District of Wisconsin-Upper Michigan of Circle K International. Joanna Patterson, the group leader, set up this volunteer experience with Mark Osborne with the Madison County Habitat for Humanity.

Following the Kiwanis Club meeting the girls were glad to take home left over cheesecakes from the Kiwanis Club buffet.

Two of the Kiwanis speakers last month were:

Karen Bailey, of the Ky River Foothills, described the
New Hope Recovery Center for Women now being planned and assorted other Foothills programs

Dr. Doug Whitlock, President of Eastern Kentucky University, outlined the many plans of the university including recent approval to offer doctoral programs.
