Kiwanians held the Roadblock for Kids from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 8 during the annual Great American Pottery Festival sponsored by the City of Richmond, KY. The group this year collected slightly more than $2,000 during the four hour roadblock. The club expresses its appreciation to Madison County residents supporting this fund drive.
