Guests May 14, 2021


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.



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!

The Carrollton Kiwanis Club had a great crew of volunteers in the parking lot of Midway Church to distribute boxes of food to the needy.  To quote the guard in "Cool Hand Luke" ; what we had was a "failure to communicate" and the "distributees"  didn't get the memo.  Here's a photo from rush hour:
