by Judi Gorney

The Kiwanis of LaPlata Community Service Committee recently completed a wall mural for Health Partners, a medical facility for uninsured, low income residents in Waldorf, Maryland. Our Kiwanis Under The Sea mural is in their new section which will be for their dental clinic soon to be opened. The children will be too busy looking at all the fish and the treasure chest to stress out over being at the dentist! Our designers and painters were: Betty Lindsay, Judi Gorney, Jim Gorney, Donna Avery, Linda Parong, Barbara Sellner and prospective members, Michelle and Curtis Taylor. Pictured are Donna Avery, Judi Gorney, and Linda Parong.
