The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton met on Friday, June 14, 2024, at local American Legion Post 143. Steve Fuller introduced our speaker, Judge Advocate Bill Hearnburg, who delivered an enlightening and powerful program on the significance of national Flag Day for our country and local community. Wearing his Air Force uniform of some 40 years ago, Hearnburg honored our local Veterans, providing a special challenge coin to commemorate the military service of local Kiwanians and to encourage them to keep patriotism going. He reinforced to our club that we don't have to be a veteran to be a patriot. Local legionnaire officers demonstrated the proper folding of the American flag, noting the folding and symbols for each of 13 folds. Our group had the pleasure of respectfully honoring the playing of taps.

The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton met on Friday, June 7, 2024, at local restaurant American Pie Pizzeria. The program, presented by Lacey Robinson and Bob Graf, focused on marking the 80th anniversary of the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944. The timing of the program was particularly poignant given the anniversary date of the invasion, and featured extraordinary photographs. Intricate diagrams illustrated the strategy of allies by air, land, and sea - aircrafts, troops, tanks, and ships - on the five beaches of embarkation. The overarching story was movingly accentuated by an overview of the small town of Bedford, Virginia, and its significance in the invasion. Thirty-seven men from this storybook town liberated a continent and changed the world. Nineteen of the 31 men lost their lives in the first nine minutes of the encounter, including three sets of brothers, which was the highest per capita loss in the U.S. As Kiwanis, we respectfully and emotionally honor the valor, nobility, and immeasurable sacrifice of the allied forces, and we will forever remember the heroic fallen who remain giants in humanity.

David Harris proved the memo that he had a good face for radio, and did an  admirable job of announcing the three day meet at Maddox Musselwhite Track at Grisham Stadium for Class 7A and 5A plus Adaptive Events.  He has announced every major track meet at Carrollton except two in 1970 and 1980, since the very first meet ever held at Carrollton High with the Carrollton Relays in April 1971.
 
Good Job David.

Carrollton High School students expertly performed the Sonata in F Minor by Telemann; Connor Haley on bassoon, and Gray Langlo on piano.  Unfortunately, the music judges did not rank our ensemble with the scholarships, however Mr. Carr and I were very impressed with the accuracy and precision that had been accomplished by the two.

The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton met on Friday, April 12, 2024, at the University of West Georgia, in the Hubbard Dining Room. Our club had the pleasure to learn about the ongoing life achievements of Margaret Miller and her continuing journey of excellence. Margaret shared highlights of her life as a young child in Carrollton - blessed with an active, loving family - to her ultimate rise to Lt. Colonel after 36 years and holding 11 ranks. Margaret's positive energy, honoring faith, and stellar achievements invigorated the room. As a fellow Kiwanian, we are fortunate to have her as our own.

Okefenokee Swamp

Posted by lacey robinson
You all are probably aware of the pending danger to the Okefenokee swamp posed by a mining operation out of Alabama that is mining titanium oxide at a site very near the swamp. If the mining operation is allowed to expand it could cause irreparable damage to the swamp and it’s ecosystem.
There are many groups in the state of Georgia and even outside our borders that are trying to stop this ecological catastrophe. The Georgia River Network is one of those groups. They have put together a website that explains the importance of protecting the swamp and what we can do as individuals to express our concerns. 
Would it be possible to send this link out to club members thru Clubrunner? I know we have several members who have interest in pursuing this effort. 
Thanks,
Lacey

Bring Guests to Kiwanis

Posted by Neil Weathington
Please !
We need a paradigm change, where in addition to just remembering to show-up for the Friday Kiwanis Meetings, we need leaders who will step-up the game and invite guests.  We all need to get behind and support the energizer bunny and Membership Chair Shane Davis.  Statistics and common sense prove that Kiwanis Clubs who actively and regularly invite guests - will grow in numbers.  If two leaders at a time will invite prospective members each week, then the club secretary is able to report on the monthly report that we are participating on the Kiwanis Two-For-Two program, (that earns us "Brownie" points toward "Distinguished" status.) and, no big surprise, more members will join.  Just remembering to "show-up" is only the first step.  Please invite friends !  If your guest is a "prospective member", the the Club pays for the lunch .  And for the absent minded professor types - remember that the meeting on Friday, March 29, 2024 is a breakfast at 7:30 AM and there will be no lunch meeting.  For retirees, be amazed that 7:30 occur two times per day ?

Shane Davis - West Georgia First Responders

Posted by Jami P Bower on Mar. 22, 2024
 
The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton met on Friday, March 22, 2024, at the Neva Lomason Memorial Library. Our club was inspired by the program provided by fellow Kiwanian, Shane Davis, who shared the founding premise and ongoing mission of his non-profit organization, West Ga First Responders. Shane formally created this non-profit in 2023 to assist first responders and their families with unexpected challenges in their lives - as a way of providing support to them - and to furthering his ministry.

Kiwanis Governor's Rally 2024

Posted by Neil Weathington on Mar. 07, 2024
Thanks for All for your cooperation in making the Governor's Rally a success for the host club and your [not always] humble Lt. Governor.  ( - :
 
Thanks to Jenny Ingram and Jeremy Sabo for serving at the registration table.  The Carrollton Kiwanis Club has perfected the R.S.V.P. process, however I was nervous that the surprise non-registered attendees would exceed the no-shows from the other clubs.    Thanks to Margaret Miller, JeNeen Walden, and (guest) Becky Ellington for singing the patriotic songs.  When I attended the first Lt. Governor's meeting last Summer, it was a pleasant surprise to find our former club member Mark Woelzlein (pronounced "Wells-Line" ) was now a Lieutenant Governor from Augusta.  Being retired veterans, it was very appropriate for Mark to lead in the Pledge of Allegiance and Margaret to sing with JeNeen and Becky "America the Beautiful" , and "God Bless America."  I was moved by the prayer offered by Mrs. Grace Miller, Secretary of the Carrollton Golden K Kiwanis Club, and perhaps the oldest Kiwanian in the room.  
 
 
Congratulations to Clint Backstrom, who was nominated by his club sponsors Jim Collins and Jack Whitman to receive the much deserved Governor's Leadership Medallion.

Georgia Kiwanis Governor Brent Leslie and his successors:  David Simmons, Governor Elect; and Barry Gardner, Vice Governor; and Past Governor Darryl Gumz have (~) seven of the eighteen rallies to attend around the state.  Georgia Executive Director Alexia Lieber and her husband Bill Leiber, Past Kiwanis International President -1993; were able to attend.
 
Thanks to President Elect Mark Herring who served as Sergeant at Arms at the Division 12 Council Meeting which preceded the Rally.
Thanks to Past Georgia Governor Richard Dixon for introducing the distinguished guests.
Thanks to Mitch Clifton and Dr. Bob Myers for taking the photos.  View their handywork at the top of this newsletter and at the top of the website.

FundTool is an App; not a website.  The App efficiently sends text message requests or reminders to recipients.
 
 
[ P.S.  I learned yesterday when I saw Kiwanis Governor Brent Leslie, that someone has managed to hack into e-mails of Lt. Governors in Georgia asking for money or gift cards.  If you got one of these e-mails from me, delete the message . (or send money to me and not to hackers ?)  Plus, after hearing the talk on FundTool, I might be more likely to use the text message APP rather than e-mail ?  -Neil ]

Jared Price - Artificial Intelligence

Posted by Jami P Bower on Jan. 20, 2024
 
The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton met on Friday, January 19, 2024, at the University of West Georgia in the Hubbard Dining Room. Fellow Kiwanian and Superintendent of Carrollton City Schools, Dr. Mark Albertus, introduced our guest speaker, Mr. Jared Price, Director of Technology at Carrollton High School. The topic for Mr. Price centered on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Mr. Price provided our club with a highly interesting, engaging, and informative program. In his daily role, he seeks to harness the benefits of AI to help CHS students navigate this computer-enhanced learning, reasoning, and perception tool in a safe and productive way. Relationships of trust and integrity among CHS students and teachers are the foundation of AI exploration and affirmative application.

The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton met on Friday, January 12, 2024, at the University of West Georgia in the Hubbard Dining Room. A special recognition occurred in the form of an Appreciation Day to honor Dr. Fred Richards for his long standing involvement in our club and community. We also celebrated a milestone 85th birthday! An entertaining and engaging program ensued with several fellow Kiwanians joining in the storytelling of favorite Fred tales. A common thread throughout the fun and laughter was the positive role of Fred in our community and as the heart, soul, and spirit of Kiwanis. All Kiwanians and special guests joined in the honoring of Fred and his lovely Ann as community friends and treasures.

We welcomed an interclub from the Fairfield Kiwanis Club:  Gloria and Barry Gardner.  A dedicated Kiwanian, Barry has served as Vice-Governor, as a Past Lieutenant Governor, and a District Chair.  He also serves as President of the Veteran's Park.  Recently  his son has been promoted to a two-star General.  Like myself, Barry is being treated for bladder cancer.

Iconic Golden K Kiwanian, Grace Miller, joined us along with daughter Margaret Miller, who retired as a Marine Colonel!  Margaret joined our club, which means some of  us will have to shape up and get it together.

Matthew Collins - The Shroud of Turin

 
 
Photo:  Paul McDaniel and Matthew Collins, Shroud Presenter
 
Matthew Collins, from Newnan Georgia, is a Shroud Presenter.   When He speaks to groups, he brings a life size (14 ft 5 in x 3 ft 7 in) replica of the Shroud of Turin, and a life size bronze covered fiberglass sculpture of the body of the man based on the three-dimension image from the Shroud.  The Shroud of Turin is currently owned by the Pope and has been housed since 1578 A.D. in The Cathedral of St. John in Turin, Italy.
Circumstantial evidence certainly leads to the conclusion that the linen is the burial cloth of Jesus of Nazareth.  As to how the linen received the image remains a great mystery.
 
Matthew Collins writes a blog and provides information on the  Third Day website .
 
Shane Davis , Matthew Collins, and Linda Robles hold the copy of the Shroud for display:

Here's the latest:
 
An enthusiastic Ben Garrett introduced us to the Birches on Maple, a first-class senior living community arriving right here in Carrollton!
A part of Tanner Health System, the Birches will offer free-standing, single-owner homes and independent living apartments, assisted-living options, and memory care for those needing special care.
 
Joining us to hear the program was Steven Gladney, invited by Lieutenant Governor Neil Weathington.  Steve, a prospective member, is a member of the Whitesburg Christian Church, plays a wicked tune on the trombone, enjoys riding a motorcycle, and doing part-time handy-man work.  The father of two grown children, he's not quite ready to move to the Birches but surely ready to join our club!
 
 
 
 
 
 
As always, we enjoyed the company of two UWG Circle K members:  Reggie Ponder, a freshman Secondary Education major and Victoria Beil, Circle K President and senior Business Management major.  The Circle K participated in a clean-up project.  Eight members volunteered, setting the standard of service we all aspire to emulate!

Guest Speaker Joe Garrett graced the Kiwanis Club of Carrolton with his rich storytelling style. Topics included the Burwell Mafia; reflections on the lives of Dr. Bob “Woody” Reeves and Mr. Cecil Duffee Jr.;  a tribute to “Sheriff Barney Fife;" and a rousing sports telecast channeling legendary Larry Munson as the voice of the Georgia Bulldogs. The program was inspirational, profound, and sprinkled with laughter.

The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton had the pleasure of Daniel Jackson speaking to our club on September 8 at noon. 
 
While Daniel’s contributions to our county are unprecedented, he continues to capture our minds and hearts with his polished, conversant, and humble manner. 
 
Daniel reflected on the rich history of Kiwanis, referring to our collective  impact as giants in the community. Daniel then turned our attention across the globe to share amazing photographs of his trip to Africa to visit his daughter, son-in-law and three grands as they continue their meaningful missionary work.

List of Things to Do :

Posted by Neil Weathington
1)  Please add to your next agenda for your Board of Officers and Directors, and approve  - the Division 12 Agreement.   Financing the Governor's Rally and some Division expenses are done through the coordination of clubs as goals spelled out in the agreement.   This is just a target.  In reality, many clubs already maintain a budget line-item each year that might, or might not, resemble the $ 3.00 per member contribution called for in the agreement.  'Tis the Season of approving budgets.  Remember that Article IV, Section 4 states: "The Council shall have no authority over the operation of any club in the Division."  Club Secretaries should report to Lt. Governor that the agreement has been approved.  Thank you!
 
2)  Schedule installation of Officers and Directors.   It will be my honor to visit your club and perform the installations. 
Please contact Neil Weathington (e-mail) or telephone (770) 328-3168 to schedule September or early October meeting dates.
Thank you !

India - Part II - May 19, 2023

Background of SICM:  South India Christian Mission was started in 1994, initially as a personal and family "experiment" when its founder, Dr. Richard Ingle, decided to take a few young, dedicated Indian preachers under wing and encourage them in ministry.  The experiment proved hugely successful as evangelistic outreach in India, and later also in Sri Lanka, blossomed.

Dr. Richard (Dick) Ingle - South India Christian Mission

Posted on Apr. 28, 2023
Dr. Richard Ingle provided the program to the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Friday, April 28, 2023 in UWG's Hubbard Dining Room.
 
South India Christian Mission was started in 1994, initially as a personal and family "experiment" when its founder, Dr. Richard Ingle, decided to take a few young, dedicated Indian preachers under wing and encourage them in ministry.  The experiment proved hugely successful as evangelistic outreach in India, and later also in Sri Lanka, blossomed.

We enjoyed another eventful gathering of the best civic club in Georgia!
 
   Opal Backstom  -  Dad Clint Backstrom and Grand Poppa Backstrom proudly showed off (daughter and granddaughter respectively) Opal Backstrom, who recently celebrated her first birthday.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We also celebrated the 93rd birthday of Ernest McClendon.  Attending with Ernest were wife Doris, daughter Rebecca, and granddaughter Samantha.  Rebecca, married with five children, was clearly happy getting to see her many friends in Carrollton.  Samantha, a high school senior, is an outstanding student who plays the trombone and guitar.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jim Watters, City Council member, joined us for lunch. Next to him was one of our favorite Golden K members, Bob Uglum, who visits on a regular basis.  Looks like he wants to also join our club!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Lynn Weathington  - Neil Weathington invited wife, Lynn, to share a lunch date.  Lynn is an author who recently published Summer Solstice, a contemporary re-telling of Jesus' parable of the prodigal.  Rebecca helped edit the book.
 
[  Neil's shameless advertisement:  Go to Amazon and order the book.  While supplies last.  HA!]
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
 
Bobby Sanders  -  Jeremy Sabo brought prospective member Bobby Sanders.  A huge Georgia Bulldog fan, Bobby is a retired banker and alum of the University of West Georgia (then West Georgia College?).  Married to Carole, he's joyfully proud of his three amazing granddaughters.  He has a million dollar smile, suggesting he was born to be a member of our club!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Kathy Parsons, founder of Impact West Georgia, a non-profit serving the homeless and others in need in our community, has submitted her membership application.  On behalf of our club, President Johnny Tanner, along with members Lacey Robinson and Robert Graf, presented a check to Kathy to support her programs.

Sara Claudia Ministries

 
Sara Claudia Cain provided a very inspirational program for the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Friday, January 20, 2023 in UWG's Hubbard Dining Room.  Oxygen deprivation to the optic nerve during what would have been a routine tonsil surgery left her totally blind in both eyes also deaf in one ear.  
 
Sara has proven herself to be a phenomenal overcomer after waking up from surgery with no eyesight.   She has written three books, completed a University degree,  speaks on a radio show, and married, and proves that nothing is impossible with God's help.
