February 22, 2010

This afternoon at Kiwanis we had program chairman Ervin Dailey present Max Brazellton, a 13 year old national essay winner for a paper he had written on Thad Tingle (a Chickasaw resident) comparing him with Chris Kringle. One brings gifts to the girls and boys while Thad Tingle delivered mail during the war to fighting boys in the jungles of Manilla. Max's essay touched on times when Thad had to drop his mail bag and fire his rifle to keep from being attacked by Japanese eager to conficate his weapon. Max is an accomplished cello player, studying under one of Mobile's finest instructors. We also voted to help the First Baptist Church build a wheelchair ramp for one of our elderly Chickasaw citizens
