 Beatrice Johnson Kiwanis Youth Kamp Foundation will install electricity at the Kamp thanks to a $5,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.

The gift was announced recently at the weekly Kiwanis meeting in Russellville. Shawn Bates, community bank president of Arvest Bank was on hand to present the check to Earl “Spud” Westmoreland, Beatrice Johnson Kiwanis Youth Kamp Foundation.

The Arvest Foundation donation to the Beatrice Johnson Kiwanis Youth Kamp Foundation will be utilized to assist with completion of a major utility project to install electricity at the Kamp.

“Thanks to a benevolent and much-appreciated grant from the Arvest Foundation, combined with other donations obtained this last year, the Beatrice Johnson Kiwanis Youth Kamp expects to finally break ground in August for our highly anticipated project to provide electricity to the Kamp,” Westmoreland said. “If your group is interested in either overnight camping or attending a Kamp day camp, please contact us by visiting our website at kampkiwanismoar.org.”

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support the Beatrice Johnson Kiwanis Youth Kamp Foundation who have dedicated their time to serving and educating the kids and families of the Russellville area.” Bates said. “This donation is just one of many we have made throughout the area. It demonstrates the foundation’s ongoing commitment to our local community and their families.”
