Kiki McDaniel presented the moving program to the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Friday, May 28, 2021 at the Courtyard Marriott.  She and her husband Tracy McDaniel represent the "Chase the Victory Foundation" in memory of their son Chase, who tragically died of cancer in 2019.    The mission of the Foundation is to strengthen the support of families grieving the loss of a child, families fighting childhood cancer, and inspire hope and kindness.

Every pair of shoes that we give away is an opportunity to share the message of hope and encourage a kid to live life in victory, regardless of what they may be facing. Each pair of shoes we give away provides a kid with personal confidence, renewed hope, and is a demonstration of love and kindness.

Bill Bailey and Chris Criswell  -    We were witness to a memorable, festive event when the entire club bellowed out a Happy Birthday tune to celebrate the birthday of Louise (Lulu) Reeves, member extraordinaire and superstar athlete.  Lulu was flanked on either side by Coach Chris Criswell and Coach Bill Bailey, the three constituting a trinity of well-known stars of the Georgia sports scene.  Chris, confessing he is a better judge than a cook and brother of our outstanding program presenter, retired Coach Tim Criswell, is a veteran World Championship Chili Judge and has served nine times as a judge at the internationally known chili challenge in Terlingua, Texas.  Bill Bailey, now a real estate agent, announced he is now available to help us buy or sell a home.  [Bill Bailey has submitted his membership application !]

 

 

Stuart Lewis  -  Milton Berry invited guest and hopefully prospective member, Fred Lewis, a person as terrific as his first name!  A retired coach and teacher, he is also the proud dad of Stuart Lewis, a retired coach/teacher who has been in Carrollton since 1981.  Fred Lewis has the spirit and soul of a Kiwanian.  Milton, bring him back to us!  Bill Bailey and Tim Criswell are also considering joining the club.  It was a great meeting!
