Proud New Sponsor: Trigg County Realty

Ronnie ClarkRonnie Clark grew up in Trigg County.  He raised his three children here.  He understands how important The Way’s new youth center will be for the kids in this area.

That’s why Ronnie made his business – Trigg County Realty – the latest Proud New Sponsor of The Way.

“The Way is a good thing for the youth,” Ronnie observed. “We need something to keep our youth busy, something with a good influence.”

An avid hunter and fisherman, Ronnie is a member of the Cadiz-Trigg County Chamber of Commerce. He’s also been a member of New Hope Baptist Church for 40 years.

Ronnie owns and operates several farms in the area, which may explain why farms are a specialty with Trigg County Realty.  The firm also offers free market analyses to its clients.

Few if any people know Trigg County real estate better than Ronnie.  And one piece of property he no doubt will be watching during the year will be 197 Lafayette – future home of The Way.

New Proud Sponsor: Hancock’s Neighborhood Market

Hancock's Neighborhood MarketMallory Lawrence owns and manages Hancock’s Neighborhood Market. And as anyone who lives in Trigg County knows, no one is a bigger supporter of “neighborhood” than Mallory.

That’s why we’re pleased to announce Hancock’s as the latest Proud Sponsor of The Way.

Mallory’s backing of The Way goes far beyond monetary contributions. She served on one of the ministry’s first fundraising committees, providing invaluable insights. Last year she sponsored and hosted a major fundraising event at her market.  Her involvement is based on her understanding of the community’s need for a youth center.

“I believe in The Way and what it does for our youth,” Mallory says. “It helps give youth a place to go after school and keep them off the streets. They hear Christian devotions. Many do not attend churches. Trigg County needs this youth center.”

Mallory’s parents opened the supermarket in Cadiz in December 1991, putting their daughter in charge as manager. During the past quarter-decade, they have expanded every department in the store and grown their number of employees from 15 to approximately 50 full- and part-time workers.

Mallory purchased the business from her parents in April 2009. Today, Hancock’s prides itself on attentive customer service, friendly employees, quality meats and produce, a fully-stocked deli, and delivery service for those who can’t shop for themselves.

Dr. Anderson was board certified by the American Board of Family Practice in 1981. That same year, he and wife Elizabeth established their medical practice in Cadiz.

Dr. Anderson served as chief of staff of Trigg County Hospital from 1983 to 1985 and 1989 to 1991.

New Proud Sponsor: Cadiz Lions Club

At 73 years and counting, few if any local organizations have helped more youth than the Cadiz Lions Club. That’s one of the many reasons why The Way is gratified that the club has chosen to sponsor our ministry.

Cadiz Lions Club ph#2A68581“I praise God for those who are devoted to providing such a wonderful place for our youth,” member Ann Knowles said.

Serving local youth is nothing new to the Cadiz Lions Club. According to president Gary Knowles, the club provides scholarships to high school seniors, sponsors vision tests for Trigg County grade school and middle school students, and even hosts an annual Easter egg hunt at West End Park.

The club also helps sponsor Camp Crescendo, a camp free to children across Kentucky who are blind or visually impaired, deaf, infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, or in foster care of the custody of grandparents.

Sheila Sandler volunteers at The Way. However, she gives much more than her time to the ministry.

Sheila and her husband Ronnie, owners of Barkley Lake Homes Realty, are one of The Way’s most generous supporters. In fact, the business recently achieved gold-sponsor status.

Sheila and Ronnie Sadler hold a poster indicating their business is a sponsor of The Way.

“We believe The Way is a tremendous asset to our community,” Sheila explains. “We are blessed to invest in our future.”

“Intentionally or not, we are all investing in something that outlasts us,” adds Ronnie. “Make it count.”

For years, Ronnie worked for the U.S. Postal Service and Sheila in the healthcare industry while moonlighting in real estate. Eventually both left their professions to become full-time Realtors. After obtaining the necessary licenses, they opened Barkley Lake Homes Realty in 2014.

“We recognize that perhaps the major complaint with Realtors is a lack of dependability,” Ronnie explains. “That’s why we have made outstanding service our highest priority for the clients we serve.”
