The Radcliff Woman’s Club participated in the City of Radcliff Summer Blast on June 25 at Colvin Community Center.
Engineered by Maria Batistoni, the club’s involvement was creating a jail where the prisoners would be rescued by a donation to a good cause. To prevent being jailed, the attendees were urged to buy garters for $3 which were made by Batistoni, Emma Day, Carlo Triplett, Mary Agnes Sears, Kyu Reisch and Shalimar Richardson. The price for putting a non-gartered person in jail was $5 and the price for getting the inmate out was $1. However, a warrant had to be signed for his release.
Some of the prisoners were Rev. Jim Shaw who was incarcerated by his daughter, two middle school students put in jail by their grandmother, and Radcliff Police Chief Jeff Cross who was confined by William Baker, son of Barbara and Bobby Baker. He was in the longest for the fire department had to come to his rescue since his own department totally ignored his predicament.
Radcliff Woman’s Club is committed to working with the community; one of its goals is to make the city a friendlier and more viable place in which to live.
