The USO Needs Your Help!
The Kiwanis Club of Atlanta has a long standing relationship with the USO of Georgia!  And one of our most popular volunteer opportunities is to welcome the troops on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Hartsfield Jackson International Airport ... and we need more folks to help out,, especially for our September 12th service day.  We also need help picking up meals every Wednesday and delivering to USO.
KCA Zoom Contact List
The club is creating a contact list of Kiwanis members directly on our Zoom account to make it easier to share speaker files, distribute any data they have sent, etc.  Only members that have a Zoom account can be on this contact list.  If you access the Zoom meetings through a direct link, but have not downloaded the Zoom app, then I cannot add you at this time.
KCA Communications and Bulletins - We Want to Talk to You!
Are you having trouble receiving the KCA Bulletins and other email communications?  It appears that computer systems/servers who use Symantec are having trouble getting communications from our ClubRunner system delivered to their inboxes.  While we work on this issue with ClubRunner, I have an email list serve set up through Outlook to send the bulletins out each week to those who need it.  And if you are  having trouble receiving your quarterly bills, I can send them to you through QuickBooks.  Just email me at and I will add you to the list!
