This is one of our club's favorite programs each year as we take the opportunity to recognize the "best of the best" from each of the law enforcement and corrections agencies in our community.

October 6 - Club Leadership Transition & Installation Ceremony

Kevin Boyd, past president of the Gainesville Club, and the new Lieutenant Governor for Division 8 of the Georgia District of Kiwanis, will install new officers and board members for the 2020-2021 year.

October 13 - Kay Blackstock, Executive Director of the Georgia Mountains Food Bank

November 3 - COL John Thompson, US Army (Ret.)

As of Tuesday, August 4, 2020 we're back to meeting in-person. Lunch at 12:00 noon and program at 12:30 p.m.

While we are excited to be able to get together again, the health and safety of you, our members, is paramount. So please know that if you are not comfortable in coming back just yet, we will certainly understand.

There will be a few changes in the way we meet:

1) Food. Please do not plan to attend earlier than 12:00 noon as the food will be served to us, cafeteria style, and will not be ready until then. For at least the time being, we will not be able to serve ourselves.

2) First Baptist Church has allowed groups to start gathering again; however they have asked us to follow some safety rules. During the meeting, with the exception of while eating, we must wear a mask. The meeting room is set up to allow us to social distance. We ask that you please adhere to these simple rules to protect our members and guests, the serving staff and Church personnel.

** If Members have any ideas for future programs or potential guests, please contact Cindy Wilson at or 770-654-2321. Thanks!
