Kiwanis Scholarship Meal Deemed Success by Club

The Kiwanis Scholarship meal was a big success thanks to all who bought tickets and donated to our cause. A thank you goes out to the Winn Parish Detention Center for the potato salad, Autumn Leaves Nursing Home for the green beans and Mac’s Fresh Market for the bread.  Kiwanian Kim Futrell provided the cakes.  

Kiwanis President Lamar Tarver oversaw the fundraiser. Dylan and Star Womack were in charge of ticket sales. Jim Nicols, Lamar Tarver and Bill Gaddis seasoned the meat. Rita James made arrangements for the potato salad and the bread donations. The cooks who started at 4 AM Monday were Jim Nicols, Joe Evans, Dylan Womack and Dr. Bill Gaddis. Kiwanians and friends who made up the plates and delivered them were Les and Janine Michie, Lamar and Candace Tarver, Mickey Parker, Mary Lou Blackley, Margaret Coon, Rita James, Dr. Jerry Williams, Jason Tarver, Kyle Armitage, Brenda Kae Richardson, and Megan Nicols who also sold a lot of tickets for us.

The money raised from the scholarship meal funds scholarships for 2 Winn Parish Seniors going to college and 1 Winn Parish Senior going to a Technical College. Thanks to the Kiwanians who sold tickets and thanks again for the wonderful support we get from our community.
