The Richmond Fire Department set up a truck next to the Kiwanis booth and the Kiwanis club took photos of participants both in front of and in the fire truck. Here, Brenda Blankenship, the Kiwanis club treasurer and event photographer posed with a little participant and his military mother and small brother.

Sometimes selecting items from the Kiwanis booth was a group project. Working at the booth in this photo, in the foreground, are (r. to l.) former Kentucky-Tennessee District Governor Dr. Ken Clawson and former K-T District First Lady Bobbie Clawson.

This Special Olympian sported a huge smile after getting a color coordinated pair of glasses and visor that matched her team shirt.

Ken and David provide prizes for the Special Olympians.

Crash Dummies Larry and Vince joined Kiwanian David Harkleroad at the Plinko Game. One of the Special Olympians perched on David's lap for the photo.

The Richmond Kiwanis Club obtained posters and brochures on Aktion Clubs which were posted at the Kiwanis Booth.

The Aktion Club brochures, provided by Kiwanis International, were distributed to parents and sponsors of Special Olympians at the event.

Many were interested in what is an Aktion Club and what does it do?
