The Elizabethtown Kiwanis Club celebrated the new and past officers of the Club in the meeting of the Kiwanis Club at Cindy’s in Elizabethtown last Tuesday evening. Past president Jeffrey Futrell was recognized for his service to Elizabethtown Kiwanis. Treasurer William Thompson was recognized with a plaque for his many years of service to Kiwanis in his position. Incoming club president Lisa Bryan recognized Vice-President Daine Smith for his continuing service to the club. New and re-elected officers will begin their roles in September of this year.
Vice-President and Key Club advisor Daine Smith discussed the effort to organize a key club at West Bladen High School. President Lisa Bryan will help Daine with this effort.
