Fit for life: Sparks fly second time around for Dog Days’ Beverly and Don Gardner
July 21, 2008
Most folks welcome summer’s lazy days to kick back, relax, barbecue and enjoy good books. Not Beverly Gardner and her husband, Don. Between them they volunteer an average of 55 hours weekly during summer months to organize and lead Red Dog’s Dog Day - a free community exercise program that celebrates its 25th anniversary this month.
Workout program celebrates 25th year
July 17, 2008
Twenty-five years ago, Jeff Hatfield learned the importance of punctuality, physical endurance and discipline from one of his toughest and favorite coaches, Don “Red Dog” Gardner. Hatfield, 39, was one of the six Lawrence High School football players who participated in Gardner’s original fitness program for youth. Thursday night, Hatfield sat in his car and watched as dozens of people filed into Abe and Jake’s Landing, 8 E. Sixth St., to help Gardner celebrate the 25th anniversary of his popular community workout program.
