This was down from 564 the previous year.  What we have no clue as to how many tickets were “sold” but not used, and we won’t know that until all members turn in the money they owe for tickets sold, donated, or left on their dresser (15 per member). Pictured at left are District Governor Otha Britton along with Division 1A Lieutenant Governor John Fry and his wife Kathy.
Kiwanis Christmas Parade 2017 - WOW!Composite of several parade pictures.The 2017 Martin Christmas Parade is now history. The parade was led by the  Martin Kiwanis sponsorship banner, carried by Key Club members. Close behind was the old red pickup truck carrying the Kiwanis banners for the 21st Martin Christmas parade. A real treat this time was the new Santa's sleigh. The sleigh, constructed by our own Steve Lemond, was "pulled" by three reindeer, also constructed by Steve. It looked great! So when you see Steve, tell him how much his work is appreciated. Thanks to all Kiwanians, Key Club members, and other participants who helped make this one of the best Christmas parades ever. ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

Kiwanis K-Kids Hear about SmellAnn Gathers with K-KidsDr. Ann Gathers, associate professor of biology, and student Aleya Brent, a psychology and biological sciences major, taught third through fifth graders at Martin Elementary School about the science of smell. The presentation took place during a recent Kiwanis K-kids club meeting. Dr. Jim Clark, Anna Clark and Sara Sieber, Kiwanis members and retired UT Martin faculty and staff, assisted with the presentation. Presenters used visual demonstrations of diffusion to teach children the fundamentals of smell. Children tested their sense of smell in a game requiring them to identify common household odors and played a “Who Nose?” trivia game.  (reprinted from the UT Martin Addenda)
BBQ Fundraiser A Big SuccessBBQ SandwichThe annual Martin Kiwanis Club "We Deliver BBQ" fundraiser held on September 29 was again a big success. The MTD cooking team helped a lot this year by smoking the BBQ pork butts and charging us only the cost of the butts. Kiwanis members gathered at 7:00 a.m. to pull the pork and then make the sandwiches and assemble the lunches. 700 lunches were sold and delivered to businesses in the area, and the event netted $3,302.50. Thanks to all who helped with the event and especially to all who purchased the 700 lunch tickets!
