Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger spoke to the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on January 7, 2022 in the Z6 Food Service Building on the Campus of the University of West Georgia.
 
The Secretary's Office covers many functions of State Government, however election security and trust dominated the talk, as the US Presidential Election of 2020 has been the main media focus for the last year.

Guests  January 7, 2022
 
 
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's talk appears to have inspired a lot of romance among the members.  Four members each invited a spouse and made the event a date.  
Fran Robinson  -  Lacey Robinson invited wife, Fran.  Fran is a UWG graduate and the former co-owner of West Georgia Travel and now uses her talent, skills, and caring to assist and support several charitable organizations.  
Sue Tarshis  -  Joe Tarshis arrived with wife, Sue, who happily describes herself as a dedicated, professional grandmother.  The Tarshis family is getting ready to celebrate Joe's 70th birthday.
Hazel Nino  -  John Nino brought wife, Hazel.  John proudly talked about Hazel's artistic creativity; she is a weaver and a fabric artist.
Beth Graf  -  Robert Graf arrived with wife Beth.  Beth is a retired nurse who also holds a Masters Degree in Psychology from UWG.  She's dedicated to integrating Psychology and Spirituality in everyday life.
Susan Welch  -  Jenny Ingram shared lunch with prospective member, Susan Welch.  Susan, who is being sponsored by Jenny, is Professor and Associate  Dean in the UWG School of Nursing.  She's submitted her application!
Dr. Kelly and Russell Crutchfield  -  We were joined by two guests of the club:  Dr. Brendan Kelly, current UWG President, and his Chief of Staff, Russell Crutchfield.  Perhaps someone warned them about my introductions because I couldn't locate them when I welcomed them to the Club!
Bob Uglum, Past President of the Golden K Kiwanis Club, visited to pump us up about the upcoming Pancake Breakfast, an event we will be helping to make happen in February.

 
Media  -  We appreciate the representatives of the media who covered Raffensperger's talk.  As always, thanks!

Our Kiwanis Energizer/DieHard spark plug, Neil Weathington, retires a card.
The pot advances to  $165, and 49 cards remain.
 
 
 
The guest speaker for the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on January 7 will be Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
 
 
The meeting will be held in the large area behind the brick wall that you may have noticed as in the past you have entered the Hubbard Dining Room.
 
Meals have been ordered for members and guests who registered on-line (see bottom of this e-mail),  
and for those who registered manually with Jenny at the last in-person meeting.  (you know who you are...)
 
Ordering meals has been tricky for this meeting.  The University is not yet open and a specific count had to be confirmed for attendees.  Kiwanis is the only customer of the day.
