Goodfellows helps children year-round

Lawrence W. Hager Sr., then the general manager of the Owensboro Inquirer, was assigned to write that story.Instead, he adopted the idea and published an appeal for people to send their donations as membership in a "Goodfellows Club" to carry on the Christmas party tradition.

Legend says that when Hager arrived at the old Grand Theatre at First and St. Ann streets before the party was to begin at 10 a.m. that Christmas Day, he found some children already there, waiting.
Boys in short pants huddled against the walls of the theater, shrinking against the icy wind.Hager immediately made some telephone calls and soon a merchant arrived with a load of long winter underwear for the children.
Throughout the years, the Goodfellows Club has carried on the tradition of providing clothing, shoes and emergency dental care to children in need.The club helps children year-round, but it is thought of most at Christmas because of the annual party the children love so much.As long as there are children in need . . . as long as there are Goodfellows willing to meet those needs . . . the legend will live on.
Today's Roll Call wraps up donations from last year's campaign.To be part of Goodfellows 2001, mail or bring your gift to the Messenger-Inquirer, 1401 Frederica St., Owensboro, KY 42301.
