 August 1977 - Gray Cited by Circle K:  “George ‘Dad’ Gray (right) Atlanta, Georgia, administrator of the Georgia Circle K District as he received the Circle K International Circle of Service Award from Louis Schiff (left), St. Paul, Minnesota, 1976-77 Circle K International Vice-President.  The award was made during the closing session of the 22nd annual Circle K Convention in Kansas City, Missouri.

“The Circle of Service Award was created to recognize and honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Circle K International ‘beyond the call of duty.’

“…Gray works for Southern Bell Telephone Company and has been a member of Kiwanis for 13 years.  He is a member of the Atlanta-Perimeter Center Kiwanis Club. He has served as club president and lieutenant governor (division 16) of the Georgia Kiwanis district.  He has been administrator of the Georgia Circle K district since April of 1975.”


February 1978 – Circle K Week slated for Feb. -11, Clubs can prepare for observances now:  “February 5-11 has been designated as Circle K Week.  The General Office has prepared a Circle K Week Kit that will be mailed to Circle K Clubs.

“Kiwanis clubs sponsoring Circle K clubs should plan now to mark this annual observance.  Circle K Week is an excellent opportunity for Kiwanis clubs to hold joint service projects or board meetings with their sponsored Circle K clubs.  It is also an excellent time to plan a Circle K program for a regular Kiwanis club meeting. 

“Kiwanis clubs can also arrange to have a Circle K district officer or administrator speak at a club meeting.  The filmstrip, ‘Embrace Humanity,’ dramatically illustrates Circle K in action and is available from the General Office for $7 (Catalog No. 30860).

“Most important, Circle K Week is an opportunity for Kiwanians to find out what their sponsored Circle K Clubs are doing.  It is also a time to recognize Circle K accomplishments and to congratulate those college students who are working to serve.

“A copy of the Circle K Week Kit is available from the General Office.  The kit contains suggestions for joint Circle K and Kiwanis involvement, suggestions for Circle K membership development, sample proclamations to be used by government officials, and other promotional materials.” (The Georgia Kiwanian)
