Kiwanis members renovate park

May 6, 2006

Albany - - Some adults in our area are putting in some overtime this weekend to improve an Albany park.

About 15 members of the Kiwanis Club headed to to the Robert Cross Park on South Martin Luther King Drive. The group added mulch to the playground and re-painted the equipment.

Kiwanis members raised money for this project and to donate to groups like the Children's Miracle Network and orphanages.

"Anybody who is in Kiwanis chose that to serve the children and they have that desire to get out and do that and I think that's what brings everybody out here doing things like that and as you can see we got a pretty big turn out today," says Kiwanis President Steve Whatley.

The group says it chose this park because Cross was a member of Kiwanis before he died. Kiwanis says it's always looking for new members. The group meets every Wednesday at Mary Acres at noon.
