THE NUMBER 100 will be key for the Kiwanis Club of Barbados Central Club this year.

In recognition of the 100th anniversary of Kiwanis International, the club will be installing 100 smoke detectors and fire extinguishers in 100 homes across the island for people who are indigent or disabled.

President Pamela Lorde said they are working with the Barbados Fire Service in order to make those households less vulnerable to destruction by fire. A total of 100 house fires were recorded in 2014. 

The project started today in Sobers Lane, The City on the exact date Kiwanis was founded in Detroit, Michigan, United States in 1915. (YB)
