 Guests February 23, 2024:
 
Charles Shiver  -  Joey Key brought prospective member Charles Shiver. Charles loves to golf and spend time in the outdoors. He and his wife, Kaylee, have two daughters: Charlee (2 years old) and Kinslee (6 months old). He is a 2015 graduate of the University of West Georgia and is as sharp a dresser as Joey is.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
JeNeen Walton  -  Colonel Margaret Miller invited prospective member, JeNeen Walton. JeNeen sings with Margaret in the "Noteworthy" singing group organized by Brenda Sue Holcomb which was a featured event at this year's Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
     
Pam Uglum and Jill Pierce  -  Bob Uglum of Golden K fame arrived with an entourage of outstanding women who spent time with friends while checking out the club: his dynamic and talented wife Pam, whom he credits with giving him many good ideas over the years; and Jill Pierce, a big supporter of the Pancake Breakfast and mother of our impressive program speaker Connor Pierce, who shared his experiences hiking the Appalachian Trail.
 
 
 
Allison Tanner  -  Johnny Tanner brought his wife, Allison. When I asked Allison what she wanted me to stay in my introduction of her, she gave me a Bette Midler look and said "Nothing." I always obey the women in my life, so, unusual for me, I said close to nothing.
 
 
 
 
 
Johnny also invited prospective member, Colin Worthington, who is News Director for Gradick Radio. Colin has a 20-uear-old son studying computer science who has been on the President's list 4 times, is excited bout baseball season, and is an ardent fan of the Cubs.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Angie McDaniel  -  Paul McDaniel brought wife and First Lady of our Kiwanis Club, Angie, our beloved past-president, who was as wild in her comments back then as I've ever been as Club Herald. Angie is currently a School Counselor at Temple High School.

The Kiwanis Club of Carrollton met on Friday, February 23, 2024, at the University of West Georgia in the Hubbard Dining Room. Our club had the pleasure to meet Connor Pierce, trail name "Bolt," to learn about his Appalachian Trail hiking experience. "Bolt" embarked on a monumental hike in 2018 - walking an extensive 2,190.9 miles in 135 days throughout 14 U.S. states. Bolt experienced all kinds of weather conditions and beautiful scenes of nature throughout his hike. He described the highlight of his journey as the human connections realized through walking with other hikers along the pathway. 
Janet and Doug Whitener presented the WayMark Foster Program to the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Friday, February 16, 2024 in UWG's Hubbard Dining Room.
WayMark :  A program that gives skills, support, and hope, to youth in foster care.

Our Honorable President, Paul McDaniel, invited prospective member Jonathan Lewis, District Executive for the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  Scheduling demands made it necessary for Jonathan to join us near the end of our meeting, but fortunately I got to talk with him.  He's enthusiastically dedicated to his work with young people and is a joy to meet.
