Frye Speaks to Kiwanis


The Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro held its weekly meeting, Tuesday night, July 19, at the Rustic Grille at 7 p.m. With President-Elect Tammy Allen presiding, there were 25 in attendance. The Hersey-Bar cake donated by Paul Cerpovicz and baked by Petite Garrett was won by Peyton Frye. The Domino's pizza donated by Domino's Pizza was won by Tracy Mason.

The program for the evening was hosted by Dianna Wedincamp. Petite Garrett introduced 11-year-old Lawson Frye, a rising 7th grade honor student at ECI. Recently, Frye placed second at the National Jr. Beta Club speech contest. Along with the Jr. Beta Club, Frye is a member of FBLA, FFA, 4-H, and is in the gifted program. He still finds time to play football and baseball. He plans to become a Biomedical Engineer. He entertained Kiwanis Club members with an award-winning speech which talked about great people having great vision and those willing to serve, not just be served. It was appropriate and fit the ideals of Kiwanis.

Governor Byron Mullican and Past Governor George Elkins, both former Lt. Governors in Division 17, made some remarks. Past Governor Elkins reminded the club that it could go from good to great in Kiwanis and talked about the encouragement he received from Chip Durden to become Governor. Governor Mullican also noted the support and encouragement from Durden. He reminded everyone about the Convention on August 12-14 in Macon.
