The Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro held its weekly meeting, Tuesday night, June 26, at Catered Creations at 7 p.m. with President Jim Clapham presiding. Twenty-one members attended.
The program for the evening was hosted by Chip Durden. Jane Durden introduced Tim Goodman, the lieutenant governor-elect for Division 17. Goodman summarized two new district initiatives this coming year, Georgia Officer and Board (GOB) training and the Governor’s Cup Award.
The GOB is an expanded version of the Club Leadership Education and includes training of not only the club president and secretary, but also the treasurer and members of the board. It is meant to inform more of the Kiwanis leadership about Kiwanis. There will be more than 20 GOB trainings available to Kiwanis members during the next three months.
The new Governor’s Cup Award is a district award patterned after Kiwanis International Distinguished Club Award. The Governor’s Cup includes not only membership growth and service to the children of the world as in the Distinguished Club Award, but also a Kiwanis administrative component.
Chair Frank Patrick thanked the 13 Kiwanians who helped with the hot dog cookout for the Summer Reading Program at the library. The club served more than 100 children and parents.
Jim Daughtry announced the recruitment of new leadership for BSA Troop 75 and Cub Scout Pack 75. Jess Bush is the new Scoutmaster, and Jessica Ishie is the new Cubmaster for those units.
Clapham announced a special going-away reception for Sarah Fraticelli on July 10 from 2 until 4 p.m. at the East Georgia State College library.
