July 23, 2021

Our program presenter and sister of Johnny Tanner, Sally Macaulay and an array of interesting guests made for an exciting, informative meeting.  Alison Tanner, wife of Johnny Tanner and the woman who made him into the outstanding, manly man he is, joined us to hear Sally's presentation on the Marietta Chalkoberfest.  Marietta Kiwanian, Andy Gaines, was present to hear Sally, his fellow Marietta Kiwanian, present the program.

 
Brightening up the meeting was Katie Macaulay, oldest daughter of Hugh and Sally Macaulay.  Katie works in insurance sales for the Farmers' Insurance Company.  Most likely Katie is the inspiration for the Farmers' TV ad that announces:  {"We know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two."  Come back to see us, Kalie!
 
 
 
 
 
Our own Tim Chapman, Superintendent of the Carrollton Center for the Arts, distributed a brochure reminding us all we have a fantastic arts center right here in town.
 
 
 
 
Other local dignitaries joined us:  Peter Debick, Carroll County Geographic Information Systems Manager and Planner; April Saunders, Marketing and Communications Director for the City of Carrollton; and Erica Studdard (AKA "Blue Eyes"), Carrollton Community Development Director.

Guests July 16, 2021

Tyler Paul Smith  -  Jack Whitman invited Georgia Representative Tyler Paul Smith (representing District 18).  A graduate of Bremen High School, the Citadel, and Atlanta's John Marshall Law School, Representative Smith informed us he considers one of his greatest accomplishments being invited to be part of Jack's pool shooting team.  Smith has a sense of humor; after Jack told him the Club Herald is a Democrat, Smith quipped:  "It's good knowing this is a bipartisan group."

 

Kiwanian Mike Renfrow, a UWG retiree who's been enjoying his retirement for years, joined us for lunch. It's always a treat to get to spend time with Mike.

 

Stephanie Cirasa  -  John Hinman did a yeoman's job of introducing our program:  Stephanie Cirasa, Director of the Waypoint Ranch, a program dedicated to helping veterans and their families heal from the consequences of their service to America.  She was accompanied by veterans Jay DeBaker and Tiffany Savage, who work with Stephanie in the program.

 

John Nino  -  Sponsored by Joe Tarshis, John Nino, Retired Army veteran (Military Police) was inducted into the club.  Thanks, John, for choosing our Kiwanis club.
