Kiwanis Club Postpones Its Annual 'Kapers' Show

In response to the devastating storms which rolled through Greene County Wednesday night, the Kiwanis Club of Greeneville has decided to postpone its annual Kiwanis Kapers show.

The show was originally scheduled for tonight and Saturday night at the Annie Hogan Byrd Auditorium at Tusculum College.

But club members decided at their regular Thursday noon meeting to postpone the performance to an undetermined weekend in May.

"This was a hard decision for us to make," said Club President, Barbara Miller. "We felt torn between forging ahead to try to provide a little comic relief during this tragedy, and postponing the performance for a couple of weeks to give the community a little time to heal.

"We certainly want to show our respect for those who were injured or lost their homes, and especially for those dealing with the loss of loved ones," she said.

The date and location will be announced as soon as a new venue can be found.

"The Byrd Auditorium is now out of the question since scheduling there does not permit us to move our date," said Dr. John Lamons, DDS, this year's Kapers director.

"For those of you who have purchased tickets, please hold on to them," he advised. "We will honor your ticket for either night."

The current plans are to use the show as a collection point for needed items such as non-perishable food items, clothing, and household items to help those affected by the storms.

Kiwanis Kapers is the major fundraiser for the club which uses the funds raised from ticket and advertising sales to support many projects throughout Greeneville and Greene County.

"Our main focus is on helping children," added Miller.

"We hope that everyone will watch for the new date and location and turn out to support this worthy cause." Additional tickets will be available at the door.
