Working to Eliminate Child Abuse and Neglect (WECAN) has been sponsoring a special children's camp for years thanks to volunteers and fundraisers like the Vaudeville Review, which will feature local singers, dancers and other performers. The event will take place on Friday, May 7, at 7 p.m. at the Coalfield Jamboree on Main Street in Logan. Musician, comedian and attorney (not in that particular order) Bob Noone will be returning as the Master of Ceremonies for the event.
This year's event will feature:
•The Daddy Rabbit Band
• Seth Bunting
•The Dance Studio
• The cross dressing Dixie Dudes
• Twirl Mania
• Krista Brown-Trogden
•Appalachian Children's Choir
Tickets are $5 each and are available at the door, or from the Logan DHHR, Movie Hut at Gilbert, Movie Hut in Man and the Logan County Chamber of Commerce.
Browning discussed the event with members of the Kiwanis Club of Logan on Thursday.
In other Kiwanis news:
• Treasurer Darren Akers said the recent pancake day brought in $437 in pancake sales and $1,386 in the silent auction proceeds.
"We really don't make anything on the pancakes anymore, but it's worth doing as a public service," he said. "We have to pay the custodians and cook at the school $420. When Dorothy Campbell was there, she used to donate the money back to the club. So the silent auction is our big fundraiser."
Club members discussed the possibility of raising ticket costs for the dinner or charging for extra juice and sausage links.
Akers said the club made over $5,000 from the recent Harlem Ambassadors exhibition ballgame. Members discussed using the proceeds to make a donation for a children's project. Akers said the club recently donated $1,632.00 to the City of Logan's clean up project for new road signs.
Akers said one local coal mine wishes to make a donation to the Andrew Bias travel fund through Kiwanis to help the youth on an educational trip.
