The Kiwanis Club of Richmond donated $6,000 toward the development of the Kiwanis Football Field to be located in the Lake Reba Recreational Complex, a City of Richmond Parks and Recreation facility off of Gibson Bay Drive in Richmond. The funds will be used to help prepare the football field and the bleachers for that field.
