Queen City 5K group benefits Cedarbook Apartments residents

Founder Darryl Clark presents unit to Director Dottie Williams.

The professional warming/serving unit will enhance activities for years to come.

Those taking part included (l. to r.) John Brinkley, Hattie Williams,
John Austin, Dottie Williams, Regina Bagley-Gray and Darryl Clark.

Representatives of the Queen City Historic 5K Walk/Run Committee recently presented a professional steam table/food warming center to the residents of Cedarbrook Apartments.

Founder Darryl Clark was joined by committee members John Austin, Regina Bagley-Gray, John Brinkley and Hattie Williams in making the presentation.

Clark spoke of the group's mission to promote wellness and unity, to show off the Queen City and to honor the community's 'bookends' -- it seniors and its youth.

'We raise funds,' Clark said, 'to give back to those areas especially. You have played an important part in "holding down the fort" so to speak, and so we say thank you and please continue.'

The gift was accepted on behalf of Cedarbrook's residents by Director Dorothy Williams.

The group has plans to make a similar contribution to the residents of Towers West at Plainfield Avenue and West 7th Street as well as other projects in the future.

2014's Annual Historic Queen City 5K Walk/Run has been scheduled for Saturday, October 11. For more information, check out the group's website here, or email contact person Regina Bagley here.
