Dixie Swafford and Suzanne Mansell recently visited with former teacher and counselor Rebecca Crouch at John Knox Village. They said that Rebecca was one of their favorite teachers. I have heard many students say the same thing. I am sure that many of you remember her as well.
The Richmond Kiwanis Club held its regular meeting Aug. 27 at the 19th Hole restaurant. During the business meeting, Steve Meyer reported on progress on the Bill George Golf Tournament. Funds are coming in and so far six teams have signed up. President Cowherd asked for volunteers to go to Lexington to start a Kiwanis Club there. F.G. Weary had a birthday but refuted all guesses at his age. Program chair Patty Walker introduced speaker for the day, Natalie Lamar, director of the Chamber of Commerce. She spoke of her work at the chamber and praised the volunteers who donate their time. Then she gave some particulars about the upcoming Outlaw Days Sept. 21, which Natalie said would be like last year’s, but much improved this year.
Apparently I have made yet another mistake in this column. I am informed that the antique organ I mentioned is not part of the Kirkland estate but it is still for sale if you’re interested by contacting Janet LaBarr.
At the regular meeting of Rotary Club last Friday, Ron Brohammer, Richmond’s city administrator, gave a very interesting program on what has been going on in the city. First, he praised the new wastewater treatment plant for which the groundbreaking ceremony was held recently.
He went on to discuss the building of the Clearpath Senior Assisted Facility, which will be built on land to the north of the United Christian Presbyterian Church. He also talked about ways to attract new business and urged all citizens to learn more about how the city works.
I hope that all of you had a safe and happy Labor Day weekend, and that if you took any trips or had visitors you will send me your news.
Until we write again, Dale...@aol.com
