2007 Roadblock for Kids participants pose for a last
photo at the end of the roadblock. Included in this group were
Kiwanians, members of the Xi Beta Chapter of Delta Zeta and four
Japanese students studying English as a second language at Eastern
Kentucky University. 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.
