The Pasco Kiwanis Club applauds retired Superior Court Judge Duane Taber, front, on Thursday during a dedication ceremony for the Pasco Kiwanis Pavilion at Memorial Park in Pasco. The shelter is the first of many upgrades at Memorial Park, which include updated playground equipment, rubber surfacing and a walking path. Taber, who has been a Kiwanis member for 32 years, was born in Pasco in 1925, the same year the Pasco Kiwanis Club was established. Pasco City Councilman Al Yenney, left, says the project took nearly two years and faced several hurdles, including $1,800 in damage by vandals before donor names could be sandblasted into the sponsorship bricks. He says a Kiwanis member stepped up the next day and presented a check to cover the cost.
