I was humbled and honored to receive the Henry Heinz medallion at the District Convention, but even more so because it was awarded by my own club.  It is my honor to serve our club at the District level, as I have done for a number of years, as chair of the District Showcase and as a trustee on the District Foundation Board.  As I am now in the rotation as president elect of the Foundation Board, it will continue to be my honor to serve and represent our amazing club at the District level.  I will do my utmost to fulfill the trust which has been placed in me and I hope I will make you all proud.
From the bottom of my heart I thank you and appreciate you.
Best regards to you all-Georgia

Georgia Carter was surprised when presented the Henry C. Heinz Award by her Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Saturday night at the Governor's Banquet.  Georgia has just completed her three year term as Trustee in the Georgia District Kiwanis Foundation, and has been selected to enter rotation as President-Elect of the Foundation.  The Heinz Award is the most appropriate way to honor her service for the Georgia District Kiwanis Foundation, as the money directly supports the Foundation.

Fred and Anne came up to Asheville,NC this weekend and passed by a KIWANIS thrift store today in a nearby town. We stopped in of course, and learned that the group brought in $100,000 in 2018 that went to kids in the area. Their secret: virtually all employees are volunteers, including community folks who are not Kiwanians, because the group does so much good for children in the area.

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.

As you may have heard, the UWG football team won their game Saturday and will now host West Florida this coming Saturday, November 25th. 

Kickoff is at 1:00pm so we would need 2 volunteers to arrive at the Stadium at 10:00am to verify inventory counts. The rest of the group would need to arrive by 11:00am so we are ready to serve at 11:30am when the gates open.

 

Please let me know ASAP if anyone is in town and available to serve. If I do not hear enough response by Tomorrow at (Tuesday) at 5pm, I will have to let the University know that we are not able to man this one.

Thank you all for all you do and sorry for the late notice!

The Moon's umbral (darkest) shadow will cross the continental United States on August 21, 2017, creating a coast-to-coast total solar eclipse visible to millions. This is one celestial event that people will be talking about for years to come.  Carroll County will be in the path of the partial eclipse, and UWG is providing safety glasses to observe the eclipse to every student in the County thanks to a grant awarded.
 
Dr. Powell narrated a slide show to the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Friday, June 30, 2017 at Sunset Hills County Club.  Dr. Powell will travel to South Carolina to study the effects of the total eclipse.

Knowing Dr. Marrero, Leader of the Wolf Pack, would be here to deliver a presentation, I was moved by the Muse to write some words to honor the occasion:
 
 
In a loincloth or a kilt,
or in a cap and gown, 
He's the life of the party,
the Toast of the Town !
 
Need scholarship money ?
Call on Marrero.
For he just loves
asking for and getting that dinero.
 
Kyle's playful and naughty,
a cure for our chagrin.
He can surely charm an audience,
with his cheshire cat grin.
 
He's a singer on stage,
Not just in the shower.
Also known to shatter glass
with his operatic power.
 
Jane says Kyle's perfect
in his boyish, imperfect way.
She's loved him since he proposed,
dressed as a cop, sing YMCA.
 
But I say Kyle's not perfect 
He's committed one great sin.
He didn't join our Kiwanis Club
When we invited him in.
 
Still, he's here with us now.
Let's forgive him and with open arms,
Welcome him to move and inspire us,
With his message and his charm.
 
Go West !  Go Wolves !

So you arrive at the Country Club and notice that there are not many cars in the parking lot.  You walk into the room where the Kiwanis Club meets - but it is empty and dark.   You double check your calendar - yes - it's Friday.  You hopefully eliminate the rapture and the possibility that you're left behind [forever] ?
 
 
Then you realize,
They are all at the UWG Stadium.  
Friday's program will emphasize the Kiwanis Youth Football Bowl and its Kick-off.  
Mitch Gray will the the special speaker.  
 
We'll see you at the Pressbox.

Jim Beck's topic was Arson and insurance in Georgia.  He enjoyed stolling down memory lane with memories of the Jaycees in Carrollton, working for Woodfin Cole at Carroll Realty, operating a telemarketing business from his residence hall while the authorities assumed he was a "bookie".  
 
Currently the Georgia Underwriting Association insures high risk and difficult to insure homes.

Good morning everyone,

 

I’m proud to share with you that I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon October 30th, in support of the Semper Fi Fund Charity. The Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post 9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families, ensuring that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities.

 

If you are interested in supporting this great charity and helping me hit my fundraising goal, please visit https://runsignup.com/runningwithapurpose or share it with your friends who might be interested in running as well. I greatly appreciate any and all assistance you would be able to provide.

 

P.S. For those interested, the goal is 3:45!

 

Respectfully,

 

Cody
