ANDREW DRUMM CHALLENGED US TO SERVE CHILDREN IN NEED “The lengthened shadow of a great man has certainly improved the lives of many young people over the last 100 years. Andrew Drumm set Brad Smith the stage for Executive Director all of us to reflect on how we might be able to serve the most innocent and the most vulnerable in our society. Too often, we are distracted by our modern novelties and annoyances while

children all around us suffer abuse, neglect or homelessness, invisible to most and forgotten by many. Andrew Drumm did not call upon us to lengthen his personal shadow; he challenged us, by his example to serve children in need. As we celebrate the first century of this grand place and Andrew Drumm the man, we must never lose sight of the essential mission he called on us to nurture and sustain.” - Brad Smith, Executive Director, excerpt from The Andrew Drumm Legacy, a biography of Andrew Drumm to be released on Oct. 11, 2019.

100 years of service. Countless lives changed. For a century, the Drumm Farm Center for Children has inspired the next generation to reach their fullest potential. We salute you for all you’ve done to advance our community. Congratulations on this meaningful milestone.

Humanitarian of the Year for the Truman Heartland Community Foundation creates a stunning work of art

A lawyer, a mortgage banker, a developer and an expert on nearly all things Independence, Byron Constance has proven that it is never too late to tap into the creativity of the right side of your brain.

When Constance was commissioned last year to sculpt a bust of Drumm Farm’s founder, Andrew Drumm, he had just three photographs to work from and no profile images of the man who built the Drumm Farm Center for Children. “It helped that he had some distinctive features, such as his handle-bar mustache and goatee,” Constance noted, adding with a laugh that since all of Drumm’s contemporaries had long since passed, no one would be able to criticize his work. “My challenge was to create an image of the kind and generous man that he was.” More than five months after beginning the project, Constance was able to unveil a stunning bronze piece that measures oneand-a-half times the likeness of Andrew Drumm. Working in legal and development sectors for most of his life, to listen to Constance describe his art and processes truly shows his newfound passion. “Although the materials used today are technologically greatly advanced, the basic process has remained the same since ancient times,” he said. “I initially created the sculpture in clay, from which a flexible rubber mold was formed and filled with wax. A ceramic shell mold was then formed around the wax. The wax was melted out, or ‘lost,’ and the cavity was filled with molten bronze. A patina was applied using acid and a blow torch for the subtle coloration of the finished work. Bronze is the metal of choice for work such as this and can last for centuries.” That longevity honors Drumm and his mission, said Executive Director Brad Smith. “Byron Constance is a respected, longtime community champion and has created an amazing tribute to our founder,” Smith said. “Walking by the sculpture, visitors will be reminded of Andrew Drumm, his foresight and his legacy on behalf of children. Byron’s significant contribution He became an attorney in his early 20s. pays homage to Drumm and will continue And an artist in his 60s. to do so for generations.” Now, at 92, Constance has created a lastConstance was the first Humanitarian of ing legacy for an organization that only the Year for the Truman Heartland Comprecedes him by eight years. munity Foundation and was the Indepen-

dence Chamber of Commerce’s 2000 Distinguished Citizen. He is the only surviving member of the original Charter Commission that penned the first city charter in Independence in 1961 and is founding director of ArtsKC. Still practicing law at Stewart, Cook, Constance & Minton, Constance has attended workshops with nationally prominent sculptors at the Loveland Academy of Fine Art and the Scottsdale Artists’ School and have studied drawing and painting at the Kansas City Art Institute. He has completed numerous pieces of sculpture and 2001 completed a six-foot bronze relief of Christ as the Good Shepherd, which hangs above the altar of the Good Shepherd Community of Christ congregation at 4301 Blue Ridge Blvd. He is currently completing a life-size bronze figure of a frontier man for installation near the Independence Square. Creativity found Constance after most people are retired. But he said the creative bug has been in him for many years. “I’ve always been involved in creating things,” he said. “Back in high school I built model ships, model airplanes and built furniture for my home.” The bust of Andrew Drumm now sits prominently outside Swinney Hall with a quote from Drumm that truly tells the tale of the man that founded Drumm Farm: “A rough life, if you can stand up under it and keep it from making your character rough, gives you a constitution that will last a lifetime.” “I’m pleased with it and I hope other people are too,” Constance said. “My style is to leave it a little rough. The skin is not super smooth, which helps portray that he was a very astute businessman. He was used to the rough-and-tumble life of that era.” “The face is the hardest part, trying to get the expression that you want, move that clay one way or the other a little bit and it totally changes things. It helps to get away from it for a week or two and then come back to it.” The Andrew Drumm bust will be unveiled at the Drumm Farm 100th anniversary Hoedown Festival on the Farm Century Celebration, Saturday, Oct. 12.

A CENTURY OF HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE Drumm Farm in Independence has made transitions through the decades

One hundred years after his death, a bust of Andrew Drumm now is place at Drumm Farm, in an amphitheater donated by the East Independence Rotary Club. [MIKE GENET/THE EXAMINER] By Mike Genet mike.genet@examiner.net

A century after a wealthy local businessman Andrew Drumm established the namesake farm institute with his will, the directors of what is now Drumm Farm Center for Children are taking the year to celebrate his vision being carried out for 100 years – and hopefully another 100 more. Incorporating the nonprofit’s annual fundraising events, Drumm Farm’s Century Celebration benefit dinner is Friday at the campus on Lee’s Summit Road in Independence. In October, the Hoedown festival will be what Executive Director Brad Smith calls the big celebration. Of course, there also was the annual alumni reunion in July for men who spent part of their childhoods at Drumm when it served as a home for orphaned or indigent boys. The 2017 reunion

was the 70th event. “What we’ve tried to do is have it lead up to 100-year celebration in October,” Smith said. “The big hoedown – it has been smaller – we decided to make it the 100-year event. We’ll have a lot of people interact with our families and the campus.” Drumm Farm now serves as a foster family residence site and also provides transitional housing – both on and off campus – to some who have aged out of foster care. When Smith took over as executive director in 2011, replacing the retired Rufus Little, Drumm Farm served 18 children. Now it has between 70 and 75 children and those in transition housing, he said, and when a new set of apartments opens soon that number will grow to about 90. Drumm Farm has made about $10 million in capital improvements this decade. Six structures have been constructed, including residences and the farmers market building supplied from produce and

small livestock raised on the farm. Having a farmers market, as well as banquet hall rentals and hosting annual kindergarten field trips, helps the farm’s visibility. “It’s one thing to engage the community, but if you don’t give them a reason to come, it’s kind of a shallow engagement,” Smith said. “Community awareness leads to community support, which allows us to serve more people.” Next to the gymnasium is a bronze bust of Andrew Drumm made by local retired attorney Byron Constance. Smith said they wanted the simple monument because there was nothing prior on campus that directly honored a man whom he lauds as a visionary even beyond establishing Drumm Farm Institute. The plaque on the base reads, “A rough life, if you can stand up under it and keep it from making your character rough, gives you a constitution that will last a lifetime.” Smith recalled that when he first inter-

viewed for the position more as a courtesy, he realized the “upside” and potential the campus had to reach more people. “My wife and I, we went to the library and checked out every book on Andrew Drumm and Drumm Center that they had,” he said. “This guy, he was so ahead of his time.” A few examples that stick out to Smith: • Having a Catholic priest, Jewish rabbi and Baptist preacher on the original board of trustees – an unusual grouping at the time – along with his wife, who when he died in 1919 wouldn’t have even been allowed to vote. • Presuming that Drumm Farm’s land would eventually be annexed by Independence or possibly Kansas City, he instructed that boys housed there be able to attend local schools, to avoid a sense of isolation. • He predicted (decades ahead) that the government would develop what is now 501(c)3 non-profit status and encouraged Drumm Farm become such an organization. • Realizing that part of the farm’s 370 acres would be desirable in the future for development, he allowed that some land could be developed as a means of supporting operations. Drumm Farm Golf Club leases a large portion of what had been farmland, in addition to the adjacent residential neighborhood. Between the golf course lease and mineral rights retained from Drumm’s lands in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico, that accounts for 10 to 15 percent of the group’s income. Guiding Drumm Farm with the same vision as its namesake, Smith said, is an admirable challenge. “The hardest job I have,” he said, “is to live up to what he did.”

DRUMM FARM CENTER FOR CHILDREN CELEBRATED A NOTABLE EXPANSION

In the midst of its centennial year, Drumm Farm Center for Children celebrated a notable expansion recently – as well as another one planned for the near future. Drumm Farm has unveiled its new Duvall Campus in southeast Independence, a nine-unit apartment complex near Independence Commons that adds to its COMPASS program for transitional housing. Brad Smith, Drumm Farm’s executive director, also revealed during the ribbon-cutting a few weeks ago that Tom and Carman Duvall, the owners of TruckMovers who purchased and donated the land for the apartments and helped fund construction, have recently committed to financing a campus expansion for the next few years. “It’s big, huge,” Smith said of the campus, even without the future plans. “To go from 2012 when we started our COMPASS pro-

gram, we had for apartments on campus and added two, then we added the five on Crysler and now nine.” When the Duvalls’ next addition is complete, Drumm Farm could have 14 more apartments. “Stunning amount of growth,” Smith said. “They committed to do that, and we’re hoping to start in 2020. They committed to it (Wednesday).” The COMPASS program offers housing and a support network to help young adults age 17-22, some of who have aged out of the foster care system, with life skills, instruction, development and some supervision to help them start life on their own, including finding a job and car and starting savings. Smith has called the COMPASS program the “polishing center” to Drumm Farm’s main campus being the “triage center” for children in need. The house on Crysler Avenue near the Community of Christ Auditorium opened last year. Smith and associate director John Tramel

both said the niche they serve, unfortunately, is growing. “It’s a population that’s exploding in the Kansas City metro area, and around the country,” Smith said. “There’s very little social services focused on them.” “Some people have not been part of any system, but they’re still homeless,” Tramel said. “They’re not with their families; they’re not connected to a formal system that would identify them. “We’ll have more people in need of this then we can ever support.” For many young people, he said, having a stable roof over their head is the pivotal difference between a more successful life or continuing to struggle. The new campus includes an another apartment for a residential assistant. “We make sure everything’s smooth, to be a support for them,” Tramel said. “We believe these young people deserve to be safe, comfortable.

Drumm Farm worked with Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity to make sure each 560-square foot apartment is live-inready with some furniture, bedding, kitchen supplies and personal items. Each unit will have a couch, bed, two bar stools, coffee table, lamps and other kitchen and bath needs. Besides the Duvalls (Carman is on the Drumm board of directors), funding came from tax credits purchased by individuals, and a small loan and with help with a grant Mutual of Omaha Bank. To continue help with operations, Drumm Farm has partnered with the Independence Housing Authority for project-based vouchers. Smith didn’t specify how much the Duvalls’ future commitment is worth, but suffice to say, “It’s life-changing for some people and organization-changing for us.” “I’m blessed and humbled by it.”
