KCA Centennial Minute - The club's 75th Anniversary is celebrated
As the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta begins it's Centennial Celebration, the Centennial Committee has created a speaker series to highlight people and activities from the club's past 100 years!

This week's “Centennial Minute" will focus on the period from May 1, 1988, to May 1, 1998.   

At next week’s meeting, former club President (1993-94) Tony Callaway will take us back to the decade during which he was President.  These were heady times for Atlanta and our club.  Kiwanis International celebrated its seventy-fifth (75th) Anniversary in 1990.  In 1993 our Club celebrated and had Camp Kiwanis opened it new location on the Broad River, and the world came to call on us in the form of the Olympic Games in 1996.  Make your plans to be in attendance as Tony relives these days with us.

If you missed the Centennial Minutes from any of our past periods in Atlanta Kiwanis history, you can view the highlights  on our website!  You can read the scripts and see photos from when our club was founded up through the time when the first women joined our club.  Just go to our home page at and click on the Centennial Celebration tab!

Pasaquan may be the most unusual and colorful art experience in the state of Georgia. Located near Buena Vista, about a 2 hour drive from Atlanta, it was the creation of St Eom (aka Eddy Owens Martin), a visionary along the lines of Howard Fenster. Starting in 1957, he built numerous lavish structures on this mystical site until his death in 1986. In 2014, Columbus State University with a grant from the Kohler Foundation restored the site to its original colorful appearance.
Following our visit, we will go to nearby Omaha Brewery for a beer and lunch. Omaha has created a St Eom beer in honor of Pasaquan!

We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for about 6 individuals who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink
Please contact Karen at to sign up!
Member Networking - Have a Spotlight Shine on You!
Do you want to let the members of our club know more about you and your business?  Do you want to network and cultivate more business contacts?  If you answered yes, then you need to sign up to do a "Member Spotlight" at one of our club meetings!
Spotlights are done every 2nd and 4th Tuesday luncheon meeting (and the occasional 5th) each month.  You have two minutes to showcase your business and tell the other members how you can benefit them!  To get on the schedule, just email Karen at
Kiwanis Club of Atlanta Car Decals
Don't get the BOOT!  Be sure your car has a Kiwanis Club of Atlanta car decal properly displayed on your vehicle.
The security company contracted by Lanier Parking will be booting all cars that are parked in the reserved parking places and that do not have a valid decal on their car identifying them as attending the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta luncheon.  So if you arrive prior to 11:45 am on Tuesday, please make sure you have a parking decal on your car.  You can get a decal from Karen at the luncheon meeting, and then place it on the right back window (passenger side) from inside your car.  They are static cling, so easy to put on and take off!
