August 29, 2011

Ar Kiwanis today Cathy Couey thanked the Club for our donations for the Recreational  programs offered by the City especially the Girls Softball League.
Our speaker today was Ray Collins a friend of Ervins and a Mobile boy .  Ray said he was so rural that he was born in his grandmothers house. He attended  Barton Academy in 1043 and later Murphy High Scool. When he joined the Navy at age 17, he was determined to take advantage of the Governments offer to provide education, He was stationed in Virginia, Pensacola and Jacksonville and stayed in during the Korean Conflict. He continued his education in Jacksonville and in Memphis TN. His wife of 51 years passed away about a year ago and this gentleman has convinced our club that he is a true patriot.
