David Kyler led the pledge to the U. S. A. flag and John Mitchell said the prayer. Several items of business were discussed, including plans to provide funds for Trigg County Special Children and Trigg County Special Olympics.
When Cadiz Civitan Club was first chartered nearly 56 years ago, local members established a school here in Trigg County for Special Children, including building, teacher and supplies. In 1955 neither, public school nor any government agency provided funds for this need.
While Civitans support many other local projects, the main emphasis is in Special Olympics and activities of these children, plus the Annual Christmas Party. Civitan supports a research center in Birmingham, Ala., trying to discover measures to prevent birth defects and a cure for many dreaded diseases, from heart disease to cancer.
David Kyler acknowledged a thank-you note from “The Way,” a local youth center, for Cadiz Civitan’s recent donation. Those attending include Wallace Blakeley, Harold Parkinson, John Mitchell, Carole Mitchell, Willie Wilson, Mike Shepard and David Kyler. The gold dollar was won by Harold Parkinson, who closed the meeting by reading the Civitan Creed.
Cadiz Civitan will meet again at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, at the Cadiz Restaurant. For questions or more information call Willie Wilson at 522-3383.
