(Volume 1, W. Albie Barksdale)

The idea of a Kiwanis Club for Charlottesville originated with Norman T. Shumate, President of the Farmers and Merchants Bank. He visited his friend, Giles H. Miller, Vice-President of the Lynchburg National Bank and a strong believer in Kiwanis. Mr. Shumate became thoroughly imbued with the ideals of Kiwanis. When he returned home he called together some of the representative businessmen of the community and explained to them the possibilities for community growth and civic betterment which would result from the organized effort of the men of the community.

They wrote International, who sent Field Representative George Selig to Charlottesville to assist in letting the club properly started. From the very first, Mr. Selig had the hearty cooperation of all those who were asked to join.

The organization meeting was held April 3, 1922, 62 were present of the 64 invited to join the new club.

President Norman T. Shumate, Vice President John L. Manahan
Secretary-Treasurer Lawrence A. Davis, Trustee Dan O. Via

A number of Kiwanians from Lynchburg were present and many of them spoke of Kiwanis and its aims and ideals.

The Charter Presentation was held on May 25, 1922. Governor Julian Y. Williams presented the charter. District Secretary Harry G. Kimball and representatives from Alexandria, Washington, and Lynchburg were also present.

The Charlottesville Club has always taken its part in activities for the under-privileged child and has given time and money for this cause. There is a Children's Home in this city where we always send Christmas presents and have donated money from the treasury to keep the buildings and grounds in good condition. Very recently we have had the buildings painted.

The great University of Virginia is located here and there are always boys who need money and part time employment to help pay their way through college. We have a revolving fund and each year we set aside one hundred dollars to be loaned to some needy young man at a small rate of interest. As this is repaid, it is again lo, el to some deserving student. We also have a committee whose duty it is to ascertain what members can use a young man of this kind in their businesses and if there are any positions found or created, to convey this information to the proper officials at the University.

We are backing the Good Roads Movement and have awarded prizes for the best essays by High School pupils on some phase of the good roads problem.

Our members fully realize that we cannot succeed alone, but that we are dependent on the International and District organizations for assistance and help. Each year our club is represented at both International and District Conventions and at the District Trustees' meet. We find that much inspiration and help can be obtained from these meetings and that the reports of our delegates from these meetings always results in renewed effort and greater accomplishment by our members.

We are right behind International and the Capital District and Will give our best efforts to accomplish any work given us, no matter how hard it may be, for we have in this club a bunch of hardworking, earnest thinkers who can be relied upon at all times.

The club has furnished and maintained an automobile for its Hospital Clinic work for several years. This is still being done with very gratifying results. The following report of this clinic work shows the actual medical attention to the under-privileged, made possible by the club providing the car. Patients are brought into the Clinic and visits made to homes by the nurse, for miles around, including several counties.

Christmas baskets were distributed to 45 needy families. These baskets were delivered in person, giving a thrill of personal contact and service to each man, Tile baskets furnished food, clothing, medicines, and toys and were valued at about $300 * These needy families were greatly helped. many saved real suffering over the winter months by this service. An annual affair of great interest and importance is the Christmas party that the club gives to the 40 or 50 children of the Tuberculosis Sanitorium. Christmas music thrills the children, and then a Kiwanis Santa Claus appears, with candy, oranges, apples, toys and needed clothing and other articles, which are given the children. The club's expense for this is about $100.

For some years the club has been building up a Student Loan Fund, putting $100 into it each year. This has helped 10 or 12 boys to remain in the University of Virginia, who otherwise would have been compelled to leave college. The $100 this year has helped a most worthy boy. The amount of this fund is now about $900.

The club has helped sponsor the City Beautification Campaign, by furnishing a committee, who appeared in the schools and before other organizations to boost the plans. The club helped make possible a Music Festival held in Charlottesville. A very active committee worked successfully to keep the Shenandoah National Park intact, rather than allow its acreage to be decreased.

The Charlottesville club has also had a delegation from each of these other clubs furnish its program at a regular meeting. This inter-club activity in the Division has done much to bring the, club members together, with closer fraternal fellowship.

Several outstanding speakers from the University of Virginia have given talks on Business Standards: Dr. Kincaid on Financial Problems, Dr. Snavely on Taxation, and Dr. Starnes on Our Labor Situation.

E-Builder, May 2011: More than thirty-five CKI, Key Club, and Kiwanis volunteers pulled together on the weekend of April 22-23 to engage in the fourth annual Charlottesville K-Family Spring Service Retreat benefiting Camp Holiday Trails, a summer camp for children with special health needs. The project was coordinated by Tameka Glover, of Smithfield, VA, the K-Family Relations Chair of the CKI Club at the University of Virginia. Not only were there CKI members from UVA, but also from Virginia Commonwealth University and James Madison University. They worked alongside Key Clubbers from the five Key Clubs sponsored by the Charlottesville Kiwanis Club, and were joined by seven Kiwanians. The Kiwanians included their two newest members, Matt Tremper, a past Governor of the Montana District of CKI International, and Stephen Rogers a former Key Clubber from Dallas, Texas, who is currently the programs director at Camp Holiday Trails.

On Saturday morning and afternoon, a thorough cleaning of the dining hall tables and chairs was accomplished, while every trash barrel the camp owns was disinfected. Kiwanis President-Elect Barb Ritter led the group in keeping ahead of the yard work which is always a must at the camp, while Kiwanis Treasurer Norm Gutzler power-washed the deck of the dining hall and a cinder block storage shed, all in anticipation of a painting project which had to be deferred due to wet weather. After lunch, Service Leadership Program Chair Don Foss convened a K-Family President's Council meeting, where the leaders of Kiwanis, the Key Clubs, and CKI for 2011-2012 were introduced.

On Monday evening, April 25th, fifteen Kiwanians turned out for their scheduled fourth-Monday service work night. The Kiwanians, led by Service Work Night chairs Charlie Krizek and PLG Dick Fowler, in addition to painting the deck and the shed, covered about ten picnic tables with paint, vacuumed and swept out several cabins, and in about two hours accomplished what Stephen Rogers said he and the camp handy-man would have taken three weeks to finish.
