Partners Advancing Student Success

Posted by Fred Richards
February 25, 2022
Our Club was inspired by an uplifting program on PASS (Partners Advancing Student Success) presented by Hannah Langley Yates and Jennifer Cheely.  As if filled by the spirit, members broke out in spontaneous applause and an occasional "Amen."  I felt I was at a revival and President Dale Williams or someone would be moved to pass the plate and take up an offering for PASS.   It was a great meeting, one that could only happen in the best civic club in Georgia!

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.

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.

Brad Raffensperger 

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.

Kiwanis Shut-ins

Good News!
 
A good report on Bob Myers.  When he went in for coronary catheterization, he was upgraded to open heart surgery - after one artery showed 95 percent blockage and another artery showed 100 percent blockage.   Now he is recovering and is able to walk around the house and talk on the telephone.  He is not allowed to ride in the front seat of any car with airbags and will cautiously miss the next few Kiwanis in-person meetings to avoid any infectious danger.
All-in-all a good report.  
 
Suart Yahm has been in improved condition and has been able to escape the bounds of Laurel Glen .  He has been seen dining out at The Venue on Cedar while celebrating Camille's birthday (December 28).  Thanks to Fred and Anne Richards for this update report on Stuart and Camille.   Perhaps we need to purchase a chauffer's hat for Anne in appreciation for the driving service.

Bowling Green - Disaster Relief

Many Kiwanians have inquired as to how to help the victims in the wake of tornados in Bowling Green Kentucky.
 
One way to help is through support of the Samaritan's Purse organization, whose Disaster Relief team left a successful track record after the recent tornado damage in Newnan Georgia.
 
The US Disaster Relief team mobilized quickly and has boots on the ground in Kentucky.    Individual donations to organizations like Samaritan's Purse can be the most effective way to help.
 
Go to Samaritan's Purse to donate !

Guests November 19, 2021
Bob Uglum  -   esteemed member of the Golden K Kiwanis Club, visited to hear an excellent program by the Honorable Mayor, Betty Cason.  Bob also shared some thoughts about our club's helping with the famous Pancake Breakfast this coming February (Wow:  Bob said "only ten weeks ahead?").
David Lambert  -  Melanie Lambert arrived with husband David.  Melanie and David were married by Betty Cason seventeen years ago when Betty served as Probate Court Judge.  It's always a joy to have the honeymoon couple sharing lunch with us.
Joe and Judy Dixon   -  Richard Dixon invited brother Joe and his wife Judy Wilson Dixon.  A successful businessman, Joe was founder and owner of Joe's Tools.  A manly man, Joe ran with the high school relay team (including our own Jim Carter) that set a record in Georgia.  Judy, retired from West Georgia Tech, after teaching English as a Second Language.  She and Betty Cason have been lifelong friends.  Joe and Judy have two daughters and two grand-daughters.
 
Our meeting was informative and full of the spirit of camaraderie and mutual affection characteristic of our club.  There was also the heavy weight of sorrow as we opened our hearts to the tragic news of past-President Angie McDaniel's father dying in a car accident.  Paul and Angie are beloved members of the club. We will keep them sheltered in our hearts and pray for them and the family - and for Angie's mother as she slowly recovers in the hospital.

Once in a Lifetime Concert

Posted by Taylor Buice on Nov 11, 2021
Hello Everyone:
 
 
On November 11, 2021 I am putting on a "once in a lifetime" concert to
benefit the WALLACE BUICE THEATRE SCHOLARSHIP, that is given to one
high school senior each year who has decided to pursue their
collegiate career in the Fine Arts.

I have an abundance of star talent coming to perform at the Carroll
County Performing Arts Center. We will have 5 of  the most talented
Atlanta performers,  5 Broadway performers, and will be featuring the
most sought after Mezzo-Soprano in the opera world, Jamie Barton.

We also have our 2019 recipient Anna Lowry (NYU-TISH), 2021 recipient
Taya Taylor (Medical Music Therapy), and Carrolltonian Blair Lipham
(Vanderbilt Vocal Performance) performing as well.
  Terry Lowry will
be Musical Directing and leading the 12-piece orchestra that will be
playing for our performers (including myself - coming out of
retirement).

I would appreciate you forwarding this to any "arts lover" that you
might know, and I hope that each of you and your spouses, family and
friends will want to attend as well.

I am also looking for someone to sponsor the program for a 100% tax
deduction (if you might know anyone interested).  Their name or
business will be displayed above the title of the show and will be
seen by thousands all over GA, including our social media platforms
(10,000 hits), posters around Carrollton and Atlanta, name on our 8x8
step and repeat banner, and VIP tickets to the event.

This is going to be an amazing night for our community and for our
local high school students.

Below is a link to the tickets, and I have attached our marketing poster.

https://yourfavorites.bpt.me/

Thank you all,

Taylor Buice

Coach Joey King, head Football Coach at Carrollton High School,  spoke to the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on the Friday (August 13) of his team's first scrimmage game against Rockmart.
 
From AJC:  

Joey King, the coach who led Cartersville to two state football titles with quarterback Trevor Lawrence, is taking the head coaching job at Carrollton, returning to Georgia after two years in the college ranks.  King was Cartersville’s head coach for five seasons, and his teams won region titles in each of them. He was the fastest in state history to reach 50 wins, in 52 games.  King, a 2001 Cedartown graduate, was on Carrollton’s staff from 2008 to 2013, coaching quarterbacks and running the offenses, under Rayvan Teague before becoming a head coach for the first time at Cartersville. Carrollton reached the state finals in 2010 and 2013 when King was on staff.

Public Safety - Cooperating Agencies

Carroll Sheriff Terry Langley and Carrollton Police Chief Joel Richards presented the program for the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Friday, June 25, 2021 with topic "the cooperation among various agencies for continued public safety".   The departments of police and sheriff must work together as it seems the bad guys don't observe political boundaries. 
The program was the last regularly scheduled Kiwanis program held at Carrollton's Courtyard Marriott.

Guests June 25, 2021

Linda Robles brought friend, Addie Weiss, as a guest.  Addie is a first grader who dreams of being a doctor so she can help others.  Let's keep in touch with Addie; she's surely destined to be a future Kiwanian.
 
 
Susan Smith, a prospective member and sister to new member Sandra Morris (who is current Rotarian of the Year) joined us to hear the great program by Chief Joel Richards and Sheriff Terry Langley.  Susan is the retired Associate Director of Ingram Library and presently also President of the Pilot Club of Haralson County.  Please come back, Susan to make Sandra Morris behave.
 
Bob Uglum, esteemed servant-leader of the Golden K Kiwanis Club, joined us to hear the program and visit friends.
 
 
 
Joe Tarshis brought prospective member John Nino.  John "returned to have a second look."  He is an Army veteran who served in the Military Police and moved here from Arkansas with his wife.  Sounds like he was called here to become a Kiwanian.  Thanks for returning, John, for "a second look."
 
 
 
  Member Sue Horn (publisher of the Star News) and Dan Minish (reporter for the Times-Georgian) also joined us to report on our Friday program.
 
 
Member and Sheriff's Deputy Greg Holcombe proudly announced he is engaged to a classy beauty, Christie.  Congratulations, Greg.  Are we invited to the wedding?
 
[ For the second year in a row, Greg was awarded the "golden spatula" for the extraordinary assistance lended to Federal Marshall Jeff May in the Kiwanis Cookout for the Council for the Aging Spring Fling 2021.]
 
 
Keep Stuart and Camille Yahm in your prayers.  Stuart is moving to Cottage Landing on July 1st, where he'll be in section 114-B.  We assume he'll still be telling great jokes.

Scintillating Geometry, Math, and Calculus.
 
  
The first interesting problem was the string girdle earth calculation, then add ten feet to the string, and calculate the gap.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Then, the pi relationship of perimeter of polygons to 2R of circle inside.
