The Kiwanis Club of Oak Ridge will meet on the second Tuesday of each month, starting at noon on March 12, April 9, and May 14.
At noon on Tuesday, March 12, the Kiwanis Club meeting will include a program by Judy Gooch about the 1961 Freedom Riders. The Freedom Riders helped integrate southern buses and stations as part of the civil rights movement, and they were recognized much later for their activities, a press release said. Gooch was the Freedom Riders speaker at an event on the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday on January 21. She is a former member of the Tennessee Board of Regents and is owner and principal designer at Judy Gooch Interiors.
More information will be provided later about the April 9 program by Julie Forkner about the Oak Ridge Public Library and the May 14 program by Katy Jett about Explore Oak Ridge.
Kiwanis Club of Oak Ridge meets at the Golden Oak Buffet in Oak Ridge. There is an optional luncheon at 11:40 a.m., and the program will start at 12:10 p.m. Tuesday. The meeting will be held in the small meeting room at the Golden Oak Buffet on the right side of the entrance door. The Buffet is located on 401 South Tulane Avenue in Oak Ridge, near the stores in the Main Street Oak Ridge shopping center.
For the 11:40 optional luncheon, enter the Golden Oak, pay for the meal (senior rate is available), come to the right side meeting room, go through the buffet line, and return to the meeting room, the press release said. For the 12:10 program, go directly to the small meeting room.
“Reservations are not needed, but we would like to know if you will be with us,” the press release said. There is no cost for people who do not eat at the optional luncheon.
