The archives has a lot of great pictures and memorabilia from the Kiwanis Kapers. The Kiwanis Kapers produced a community variety program for several decades in Kingsport as a fundraiser for the Kiwanis Club. The Kapers had a number of acts that varied from chorus lines, to minstrel acts, and a variety of various other skits.
In 1964, one of the big acts of the program was the the “Singing Housewives.” According to the paper, “the Singing Housewives were accomplished singers whose major interest in life is the rearing of families.”
