Family helps fund project
Posted: Thursday, September 23, 2010 1:36 pm LOCAL FAMILY HELPS FUND MARTIN KIWANIS CLUB’S AED PROJECT — The Parks family has good reason to support the Martin Kiwanis Club’s AED (Automated External Defibrillator) project. One of their family members, Trey Parks, who is an MMS seventh-grader, was saved by one of the units when he went into sudden cardiac arrest during a football game warm-up. The grateful family is shown presenting funds, raised at the recent Soybean Festival, to purchase additional AEDs for school sports programs in Weakley County. All local school buildings have AEDs supplied by the Martin Kiwanis Club, along with other civic organizations and concerned citizens who know that AEDs save lives. However, sports programs need portable AEDS close at hand if an emergency should occur. If you would like to help purchase additional portable devices, contact any Kiwanis Club member, call Martin Kiwanis Club President, Terry Duncan at 881-3343, or send a donation to Martin Kiwanis Club, PO Box 583, Martin, TN 38237.Accepting and presenting the donation are (from left, back) Lana Carpenter, Steve Lemond, Deb Parks, Brooke Parks, Misty Menees, Linda Ramsey, (front) Terry Duncan, Eve Parks, Emma Parks and Brad Parks.
