Kiwanis Club Sponsors 2010 Annual Roadblock

Two members of the Delta Zeta Sorority, (l.to r.) Maggie Brunner and Lauren Simpson collected funds at the Kiwanis Roadblock for Kids

 

The Kiwanis Club of Richmond conducted it's annual Roadblock for Kids. This year the various participants raised slightly in excell of $1,000 which was donated to the City of Richmond Parks and Recreation Department. The city had decided to do away with this event due to a budget shortfall, so the Kiwanis Club of Richmond stepped in to become a major sponosr of the annual Richmond Halloween Hoe Down which will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 23.

The Richmond Kiwanis Club is partnering with the Richmond Parks and Recreation Department to help support the inflatables, the hayride,a banner for this event, and posters for schools.

Other items required for this event will be Port O Potties, gourds for Pumpkin Painting, generators for food vendors, a sound system for the DJ booth, additional candy, advertising, and postage.

Kiwanian and Key Club volunteers will assist with the Dog Costume Contest, Pumpkin Face painting, Halloween Bingo, Pumpkin Bucket Game and Ghost Bean Bag Toss.

Assisting with the 2010 Roadblock for Kids fundraiser were the Delta Zeta Sorority (a philanthropic sorority at Eastern Kentucky University), and the Model School Key Club. Both have been long time supporters to Kiwanis fundraisers and projects.

Also participating in the 2010 Roadblock for Kids fundraiser this year were five Eastern Kentucky University exchange students from the Liaoning University of Technology in Jinzhou, China.

The names of the young people who sorked the fundraiser may be found with their photographs.

Richmond Kiwanis Supports Richmond Halloween Hoe Down

The Kiwanis Club of Richmond contributed $1,000 to the Richmond Parks and Recreation Department to help bring back the Richmond/Madison County Halloween Hoe Down. Hundreds of children, most in costume, participated in this annual event.

In addition to the financial support provided by the local Kiwanis club, Kiwanians also operated several games and gave prizes and candy to the children who participated in these games. The games included a Pumpkin bean bag toss, a Ghost Bingo, a Ghost and Witch bean bag toss, and a Jack-O-Lantern bean bag toss,

Five members of the Model High School Key Club joined the local Kiwanians to help run the games for the children. Key Club is a Kiwanis sponsored organization and is the largest high school service club in the world.
