President David's 2020-21 Wrap Up!
Dear Fellow Kiwanians,
I have had such a rewarding year as your president in what has amounted to be yet another challenging year in every aspect of our mission. But the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta, Georgia’s oldest and largest Kiwanis Club, has not been around for 103 years without having faced and overcome many challenges. With your help, we have had a very successful year, and I would love to share some of those highlights with you here.
Welcome from President Marbury Rainer
Dear Fellow Kiwanians,
I am honored to be your President for the coming year. I look forward to working with each of you and having a great time as we work together. I plan to build on the great work that President David Moore and before him Sandy Welfare have done in guiding the Club through these last two crazy pandemic years. We owe them and all who have served as officers, directors and committee chairs a debt of gratitude for  their efforts on our behalf.
