The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard from the C-E-O of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce about the many positive things happening in the community, during their weekly meeting at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Patty Hornbuckle (right) reviewed all that's going on with the Christian County CEO Program, the Taylorville Development Association, the Christian County Economic Development Corporation, and the newly-formed Small Town Taylorville Committee.
That last committee is comprised of civic leaders and businesspeople from several Taylorville organizations that recently received the green light from the Taylorville Business Development District Board and the City, for a 3-year commitment to fund a long-term promotional campaign to attract new businesses and residences to the Christian County seat.
Hornbuckle told Kiwanis members the committee members, the B-D-D Board and the City, all have the same goal.
In other Kiwanis news, Kiwanis Park Pavilion roofing project co-chair Will Perkins reported that the materials are in for the new roof, with prep work prior to installation taking place this week. The original roof, installed when the pavilion was built in 1995, was recently removed, and a new metal roof is set to be installed.
