Civitans raising funds by painting reflective numbers

Members of the River City Civitan Club will begin painting light-reflective house numbers on driveways or curbs in the Burningtree area of Decatur on Saturday.

They are raising funds to buy a canine transport module for the Morgan County Sheriff's Department bomb-detection dog.

"A large percentage of residence and business addresses are not adequately marked to assist emergency personnel to find you, especially at night," said Keith Russell, Civitan director. They will use light-reflective paint behind black numbers.

He said they are taking orders and, depending on weather, plan to paint numbers on streets behind Burningtree Country Club Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.

They will schedule other days as needed to complete orders there and on Burningtree Mountain.

Residents should complete the forms left at homes and return them to their block captains listed in the neighborhood directory, he said, or call him at 355-7828.

The club requests a $10 or more donation for each set of numbers painted. Checks can be sent (along with the name, address and phone number) to River City Civitan Club, P.O. Box 5332, Decatur, AL 35602.
