Message from the President

Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Gainesville, Georgia!

A message from our President, Allen Jernigan:

I want to thank you for trusting in me to lead our 98th year. 

Our club has a storied history led by true leaders in Gainesville and I want to continue that tradition of serving the youth in our community.  I am humbled and honored to be included in a long list of Kiwanis Club of Gainesville Presidents starting with John Jacobs in 1925.   

 Our club selflessly gives with our time and finances to make a huge difference for many young people in Hall County. We Read Aloud to elementary school children in our community.  We purchase and deliver dictionaries for every 3rd grader in our county.  We hold an annual Music and Arts competition and give away several large scholarships to the winners.  We buy Christmas presents for needy children that are in the accountability court system. We have also funded a scholarship endowment that gives scholarships each year. To raise money for our activities we hold an annual golf tournament and a pancake breakfast. 

We are quickly approaching our 100th year.  I hope to see our club begin work on a project to celebrate our centennial anniversary such as a playground or other large project to benefit children. 

So, I close in asking that you step up and help us serve the children of our community.
