“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
KaDonna Nichols is no stranger to The Way. She has spent many Monday afternoons volunteering at the ministry, interacting with students and helping however she can.
Now, thanks to a generous donation, she’s become a Proud Sponsor of The Way. That’s KaDonna and Martha Davis, The Way’s fundraising coordinator, in the photo at left.
KaDonna earned her Realtor license in January and now works for RE/MAX Southern Charm. A resident of Trigg County for 25 years, she knows that this area needs a youth center like the one The Way is building.
“There’s a lack of good places in town for kids to go after school,” she explains. “The Way offers an opportunity for kids to have a place to go and receive guidance in a Christian way.” She added that The Way may be the only opportunity many of these students have to interact and develop friendships with Christian adults.
RE/MAX Southern Charm is located at 72 Lone Oak Drive in Cadiz. You can reach KaDonna at 270.350.3665 (office) or 270.350.8117 (cell).
New Proud Sponsor of The Way Craig Stallons was born and raised in Trigg County. He knows the temptations that face kids in this area. It’s one of the reasons he supports our ministry.
“The youth in our community need something to focus on, somewhere to go to after school,” Stallons said. “If they don’t have that, they can wander into areas and activities they don’t need to get into.”
Stallons, a member of East Cadiz Baptist Church (another sponsor of The Way) has also been a Realtor for 20 years. He appreciates what having a new, fully equipped youth center will do for this community.
“One of the first questions families ask when considering living here is about our school system,” he said. “As a Realtor, when you can go beyond that to describe after-school programs like The Way where their children can go, that’s a plus.”
Stallons is a Realtor/Broker for Coldwell Banker, 110 Merchant St., Cadiz. You can reach him at 270.522.4699 (office) or 270.339.4739 (cell).
The Rotary Club of Cadiz recently donated $27,000 to The Way for purchasing items for our youth center.
This contribution is humbling. It’s also in keeping with the club’s generosity. No organization does more than the Rotary Club of Cadiz to financially support the youth and senior citizens of Trigg County. At their most recent auction, the club raised more than a quarter million dollars to help others. We are grateful they have chosen to support our ministry, and we welcome them as another Proud Sponsor of The Way.
Pictured here with the sponsor poster are, from left to right, Rotary Club of Cadiz vice president and auction chair Travis Hamby and three volunteers from The Way – treasurer Judy Terrell, fundraising coordinator Martha Davis, and director Carl Heckmann.
The club’s much-needed donation will be put to good use. For the youth center’s gym, it will help purchase bleachers, basketballs, soccer balls, basketball goals, nets, and other supplies. For the gym’s adjoining building, monies will be used to buy flat-screen TVs, pool tables, ping-pong tables, a projector and other equipment.
The Rotary Club of Cadiz meets every Tuesday at the Johnson Tyler Community Center at 102 Lincoln Street in Cadiz. To learn more about the organization and their good works, visit www.cadizrotary.org.
In Cadiz, there are plenty of nail salons to choose from. However, it’s nice when a nail salon chooses you. That’s what happened to this ministry when HD Nails made a contribution to our building fund and became a Proud Sponsor of The Way.
Owners Connie and Tony Le (pictured at left), who moved here from Georgia seven years ago, believe in what The Way provides to the community.
“The Way is a good cause,” Tony explained. “We have two small boys (8-year-od Alex and 6-year-old Ashton) and we want them to have a place to go after school instead of being with kids who hang out and smoke weed or do other drugs. A new youth center will be a great place for them to go. We hope more businesses will support it.”
HD Nails is located at 63 Lakota Drive in Cadiz. According to Tony, “we can do just about anything you want to fingernails and toenails.”
The salon is open Monday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. To make an appointment, call 270.522.4043.
One of the hardest tasks for a non-profit, all-volunteer organization is fundraising. It’s difficult to ask others for money, no matter how generous they may be.
So when someone actually volunteers not only to donate money, but also time, it’s much appreciated.
Such is the case with the Pennyrile Board of Realtors. We welcome them as a Proud Sponsor of The Way.
During the first night of the Rotary auction in April, The Way served dinner to raise money for its new youth center. Not only did members of the Pennyrile Board of Realtors volunteer to help cook and serve, but they also donated a sizable amount to the cause.
