Kiwanis Beautifies Floyd Middle School

Group_Picture_for_Kiwanis_One_Day_at_Flyid_Middle_School_5-3-14The Kiwanis Club of Greater South Cobb teamed up with the other eight Kiwanis Clubs within Division 15 in the Georgia District to volunteer their time, talent, and energy to work and beautify Floyd Middle school, Mableton in the tradition of providing community service to commemorate the annual Kiwanis One Day project on May 3. Many thanks to all Kiwanis Clubs for their participation.

Members showed up on that day with rakes, shovels, tree trimming scissors, gloves, paint brushes, paint rollers, and other tools.

“With an attitude of teamwork and a mind to work, the end-results were spectacular – about 10 student restrooms were painted and the courtyard received a facelift which included raking leaves, trimming shrubs and trees, removing 13 dead Azaleas and replacing or planting almost 20 Aucubas shrubs and putting down pine straw and mulch,” said Ray Tiyamiyu, President Kiwanis Club of Greater South Cobb. “What a great opportunity to serve the children and the faculty of one of our local schools.”

The Kiwanians also enjoyed a great time of fellowship during breakfast and lunch (thanks to Chik Fil A, and Subway). Overall, 2014 Kiwanis One Day Project was a huge success. Thanks to all the volunteers, donors, Dr. Harqrett, the Principal of Floyd Middle School, for her partnership with the Kiwanis on this project, and to Lt. Governors Ron Davis, and Bobbie Gauthier for their leadership on this project.
