Past Georgia District of Kiwanis Governor Homer S. "Chip" Durden III and Past Division 18 Lt. Governor Tim Goodman are to be Honored as Walter Zeller Fellows at the Kiwanis Georgia Division 17 Rally to be held in Lyons on February 27. Both members of the Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro were selected by their Club's Board of Directors to be honored as Walter Zeller Fellows for their outstanding work in Kiwanis over the past several years.
The Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro were able to award these to Zellers because of the club’s gifts of over $2,500 to the world wide Eliminate Project. When you give $1,250 to The Eliminate Project, UNICEF and Kiwanis International are able to save 690 women and their future babies world wide from maternal and neonatal tetanus. Walter Zeller made the first gift to establish the Kiwanis International Foundation in 1940. To honor a kindred spirit of generosity, Walter Zeller Fellows receive a medallion, certificate and commemorative lapel pin. Most important of all, they help put MNT where it belongs: in the medical history books. Imagine more than 690 lives full of possibility. Just think, if those 690 women each gave birth to just one child, those 690 children could: Receive 251,850 goodnight kisses per year; Give their parents 1 million hugs a year; Form 62 soccer teams; Fill 27 kindergarten classes.
If you would like to donate to The Eliminate Project, please contact the Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro Eliminate coordinator, Tim Goodman at 478-237-9067 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
