Stories
The Nifty Fifty Fifty Club Raffle
 
There was no need in hunting a joker.   Clint Backstrom presided over the meeting and had every ticket holder stand, then sit down if the fourth digit from the right didn't match the number called.  He prolonged the agony by having the remaining keep standing one number at a time, until only one number matched.   At the end, there were only three members standing until the last number was called.  W.H. Smith figures that he has been in the club over one year since his ticket won the 53rd drawing.    It was a few weeks over a year because the raffle was put on recess for a few weeks during solemn occasions.  Contratulations go to W.H. Smith, who was able to enjoy the victory until he arrived home !
 
 
 
The pot is empty and 53 cards will begin the fifty-fifty raffle all over again.

Georgia Student Leadership Program
Happy New Year Kiwanis Members!

If you have been following the monthly editions of the "Georgia Kiwanian", you would have seen the Service Leadership Program write-ups concerning the NEW 2019 Georgia Student Leadership Program for March 22-24, Covington, Ga at the Ga FFA FCCLA Camp. Well, the time is now.
 
Registration is officially OPEN for Both students and volunteers.  http://www.georgiakiwanis.com/ga-student-leadership-program-formerly-key-leader.html.
 
Adult volunteers should register immediately to lock in your commitment to our youth. The deadline for ADULT volunteers is March 1, 2019; Security clearances are mandatory for all events that involve STUDENTS should be registered with camp credentials (signed documents, camp itinerary and absentee authorizations on file with their middle/high schools.

I look forward to the expeditious responses and the vast spreading of this communication concerning the 1st Georgia Student Leadership Program initiative.  Allow me to encourage you to strike up conversations amongst each other Kiwanis members, Key Club advisors, youth leaders, boy and girl scouts; 4-H'ers, school counselors, every atmosphere children can be found--where children have the potential of becoming leaders.
 
This year, the students will experience new and exciting leadership training material and experiences that will have a lifetime of intriguing impressions. Those experiences and impressions will rely completely and entirely on every Kiwanian in the Georgia District. We are the first line of defense. We are Leaders making Leaders.

NEW NAME! NEW INITIATIVE! NEW STUDENTS! NEW LEADERS!
