When Jonah McDonald announced that he was going to walk from Maine to his new home in Atlanta, his parents scratched their heads. “But think of the stories I’ll have to tell!” Jonah said. He proceeded to hike all 2,172 miles of the Appalachian Trail and hasn’t stopped moving or telling stories since. 

As a professional storyteller, author, and park ranger, Jonah enchants audiences with tales from around the world, as well as stories of adventure, nature, and history. Jonah’s stories and infectious energy delight groups of all ages and sizes. Filled with enthusiasm and humor, Jonah’s stories make you feel like you are on an adventure. 

Jonah has been selected to be a repeat performer at the Peach State Storytelling Festival and Tellabration! Atlanta. Jonah is an author and seasoned entertainer whose storytelling has been featured on Atlanta’s NPR affiliate station, WABE 90.1 FM. He now serves as the host of the show, "Living History," on AIB TV. He does all of this while serving as the DeKalb County naturalist at Mason Mill Park and writing guidebooks about Atlanta, including Hiking Atlanta’s Hidden Forests: Intown and Out and Secret Atlanta: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure

Jonah loves exploring his city via bicycle, canoe, or foot, and believes that there is a new story to learn and tell around every bend. When he’s not already on an adventure,Jonah loves finding a new one.

National Philanthropy Day is Virtual This Year!
National Philanthropy Day 2020 is Thursday, October 29th and the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta is proud to be a Presenting Sponsor!  And this year, the event is virtual and all of our members are invited to attend a day full of activities!
KCA Office is Looking for a New Home!
The Kiwanis Club of Atlanta needs to find a new office next spring!  Our sublease is up in April, so we need to find a new office space.  If you, or someone you know, has about 150 - 200 sf of office space that we can use or get for a great price smiley please let us know.  We need to make arrangements in the next few months to coordinate our move.  Email Karen at

KCA Tuesday Zoom Meetings now feature Social Breakout Rooms!
Have you missed your Kiwanis friends at our regular Tuesday meetings?   If so, you can join them on our Zoom Virtual Meetings, each Tuesday at 11:45 am - Just bring your own sack lunch!
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!
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.
