Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving
Not a Kiwanis project - but it's right up our Alley:
 
New location:  The community effort to feed hot turkey lunches to the less privileged previously accomplished at the home of David and Andrea Walker has been moved this year to the Little Hawaiian's Venue on Cedar St in Carrollton Ga.
Food preparers should congregate at 7:00 AM on Thanksgiving morning.   
 
A community effort to feed hot turkey lunches to the less privileged has in the past few years been accomplished at the home of David and Andrea Walker on Tyus Road.  This year (2018) The workers and deliverers will convene at  Little Hawaiian's Venue on Cedar St.  
 
Here are some photos from years past:
 
Kiwanians Dr. Lok, Derick Newton, Nancy Dixon, and Neil Weathington participated in the early Thanksgiving morning activity.

This project was sponsored by Ray Fulford, Brad Cole Construction, and many donations from other businesses.
 
 
 
Moved:  You don't need to drive to Tyus .   This year (2018) go to Cedar Street in Carrollton Georgia.

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.
