Frye Speaks to Kiwanis

The Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro held its weekly meeting Tuesday night, July 19, 2022 at the Rustic Grille at 7:00. President-Elect Tammy Allen presiding, 25 members were 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 Lawson placed 2nd at the National Jr. Beta Club speech contest. Along with the Jr. Beta Club, Lawson is a member of FBLA, FFA, 4-H, and is in the gifted program. He still finds time to play football and baseball. His future plans is to become a Biomedical Engineer. He entertained the group with his award-winning speech which talked about great people having great vision and those willing to serve, not just be served.

The speech was very appropriate as it 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 us that we 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 Chip. He reminded everyone about the Convention on August 12-14 in Macon.
