April Ramoni recently spoke at the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club dinner meeting hosted by the Quality Inn in Scottsburg. Pictured are Kiwanis President David Wilson, April Ramoni and Kiwanis Secretary Al Riggle. April is actively involved in Scott County, and was named the Volunteer of the Year in 2014 by Scottsburg Mayor Bill Graham. The Executive Director of the Scott County Area Planning Commission, April also serves on the Scott County Arts Council, the Street Art Initiative, Scottsburg Main Street and Scottsburg Courtyard Christmas.
A native of Scott County, April moved away at age two and returned when she was 12. After attending from Ball State University, April lived in Nashville, TN and Los Angeles, CA. April returned in 2002, wanting to be back in Scottsburg and to serve the community. April began selling Mary Kay Cosmetics, and has tremendous respect for its founder, Mary Kay Ash. April shares Mary Kay’s vision by helping women to feel confident in themselves and reminding them that “One Woman Can!” achieve anything she sets her mind to.
The Scottsburg Street Art Initiative painted three murals and 27 cross-walks in 2015, and plans to paint five more murals and 13 more cross-walks in 2016.
The Scottsburg Main Street is part of a national organization whose goal is to bring people downtown. Mater Fest, the Film Festival and Trick or Treat on the Square are events sponsored by Main Street.
During the Christmas season April was Santa’s helper at Santa’s House on the Courtyard Square. Her husband, Greg Ramoni, greeted children as Santa Claus.
April thanked the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club for its work to serve the children of Scott County. She challenged each of us with the question, “What’s one more thing that each of us can do? What’s the little extra that we can do?” For herself, April answered that question by pledging to complete an application to join the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club.
The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club thanked April for her presentation and for everything that she does for the people of Scott County. We welcome her to Kiwanis.
