Kenneth Plummer, Jr. 

 

 

 

 

 

Kenneth Plummer Jr. was involved in community service organizations for many years.  Several years ago he found another avenue to serve his community. The president of Day & Carter Mortuary donated stocks to the Lawrence County Community Foundation.

The stocks were sold and the proceeds were placed in a fund within the Community Foundation. The principal is never spent, but the interest will be paid to the Thornton Memorial Boys Club and the Limestone Girls Club to maintain services.

“I chose to donate the stocks to the two clubs because I was impressed with their sports programs,” Plummer said. “I was impressed with the variety of sports they offer and the amount of children who participate in them.”

Plummer said the money is earmarked to perpetuate the two youth programs and will not be spent toward their building projects.

“It was a way to return our blessing back to the community,” Plummer said. “Our great grandson, Jesse Plummer, will be 6 in January. He’s just at the age to start participating in sports at the boys club. Our donation will benefit him, too.”

In addition, Lilly Endowment provided a 50 percent match to Plummer’s contribution. Plummer, a lifelong resident of the county, started working at Day & Carter Mortuary when he was in high school. He graduated from Kansas State University and Indiana College of Mortuary Science. He also served during the Korean Conflict, returning to serve the Bedford community in 1956.

The businessman has served his community as a Bedford City Council member, past commander of Gillen Post 33 of the American Legion, past Exalted Ruler of Bedford Elks Lodge and deacon of First Baptist Church in Bedford . He has been associated with youth activities through chairmanships in the American Legion.
