  • As of October 10, 2001, more than $350,000.00 has been donated by Kiwanis to the 911 Children's Victim's Fund.
  • Governor Nancy Miller and President Kristen Carnohan have established several goals for our club this year. One goal is to add a new project to our continuing service project of "Young Children: Priority One." The Board recently heard a presentation about a project called "See by Three." This involves various pediatric ophthalmologists working with folks in the Abilene area to help screen children below the age of three for a condition generally known as "lazy eye." Once screened, the doctors frequently prescribe an eye patch and usually this very simple process results in the restoration of normal sight. The key is to get this done before the age of three. The Board has taken this on as a new project.
  • Russell Berry was elected to the Board as a one year director filling the vacancy left by the resignation of Martin Kemper who moved to Waco.
  • Kristen Carnohan and Nancy Miller were presented with Hixson Awards.
  • Teresa Walch recognized Haley Hayes, Samantha Rodriguez, and Denver Unterreiner as Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year. Alisha Louis was the outstanding senior youth of the year and will go on to San Angelo to compete.
  • IHOP considers it an honor to help Kiwanians with Pancake Day. They have agreed to furnish the batter, syrup, butter, and be there to mix the batter. HOORAY FOR IHOP!!
  • John Snapp, Chairman of the Boys & Girls Committee, presented Ricki Brown who heads up the "Read to Me"Committee, a check for $1,000 to buy books for the Day Care Nursery of Abilene.
  • Kelly Jones announced that last week they screened a total of 90 children and they found four children with severe eye problems. These children have been referred to a doctor. Jarrell Young has gone to Costa Rica and took the "See By Three" program with him. They will be using in to screen children in Costa Rica.
  • This year's Layperson of the Year is a dedicated servant. He has delivered Meals on Wheels for over 25 years and he is the driving force behind our "See by Three" program. Layperson of the year is Glyn Hammons. Congratulations Glyn!
  • Five outstanding scholars were selected to receive $500 scholarships to further their education. They are Amanda Cutler, Tina Renault, Casey Pittcock, Tyler Pittman, and Pascuala Rivera.
  • Governor Nancy Miller reported that our club is ranked number two in the T-O district for the number of new members brought into the club. We have brought in 17 new members this year. (From the May 22, 2002 Kiwanigram)
  • President Kristen Carnohan reported that Briarstone is charging $1 per member more than we are charging our members. The Board does not want to raise dues, so they have decided that once a quarter we will have beans and cornbread.
  • Bailey Choate was an active member until his passing on July 31, 2002. He joined Kiwanis on February 28, 1946. Bailey received the Kiwanis International Foundation Tablet of Honor which is the highest level of recognition offered by the KI Foundation. He received the George F. Hixson Fellowship, Legion of Honor, and Kiwanian of the Year awards. He served as President, Lt. Governor, and Governor as well as serving on many committees. He had 43 years of perfect attendance. Bailey was an outstanding man and Kiwanian. He will leave a huge gap in our organization and will certainly be missed.
