The Keyhole is the first in a series of interviews about the 2018 United Way of Bourbon County grant recipients.
Donations to United Way stay local, according to its brochure, and the organization focusus on education, income and health.
The community is asked to be a part by contributing to employee campaigns at their place of employment, make a one-time donation via email, or donate on-line at http://bit.ly/bourboncountyuw.
Ben Workman is the interim director of the Keyhole, since December 5, 2017.
Workman said the Keyhole is a place to provide Christian-oriented recreation, social and education opportunities for area youth.
“The Keyhole (board) wants the kids in our area to be productive members of society, through Christian values,” Workman said.
“The entertainment side is a draw to the kids,” he said.
“We have goals of youth to respect authority, love each other and love their parents,” Workman said. “That’s the pastor side of me.”
Workman is pastor of Cornerstone Bible Church and also is a current board member of the Keyhole.
Other board members are Dona Bauer, Tim Harper, Judy Hood, Marge Madison, Kenny Felt.
The facility is located across from Fort Scott High School at 1002 S. Main. Phone number is 620-223-4700.
