A brief message from our Club President, our new Georgia District Director to the Citadel Alumni Association.
I just received a very
nice phone call from Tom McAllister, Assistant Director of Alumni
Affairs for the CAA. Tom informed me that I have been selected
to serve on the Board of Directors for the CAA as one of two
Directors representing District 11, the State of Georgia. This
is a position that I truly wanted but I could not have reached
without the strong backing of The Southside Atlanta Citadel Club.
I want to thank each of you that supported me during this campaign.
Please know that this new position will not change my desire to
serve as the President of the Southside Citadel Club. Thank you all
again for all of your support.
A Radical Change of Direction - Memoir of the Spiritual Journey of a Surgeon
Many of you know Don Mullen - a true
Renaisance Man. After graduating the Citadel '57 he went on to
become a highly successful cardiac surgeon - but this all changed
when he volunteered to a medical mission trip to Kenya. Follow his
journey from conservative surgeon to a more spiritual based life. He
graduated seminary with a Doctorate of Divinity and has since worked
in three war zones, numerous countries all over African, the Far
East and the Middle East. He has spoken and preached in dozens
of churches in the United states and most recently had been a multi
term mayor in Highlands N.C. prior to his move to Newnan.
Family Fish Fry and Oyster Roast
Great party at Jack's. Everyone left stuffed except for Todd River's wife Helen - who knew she won an oyster eating contest by downing 109 oysters in 15 minutes. Fortunately she left a few for the rest of us. Fun games and fellowship. Susan Conlan, mother of David Conlan a recent graduate, showed up to join us - thanks Susan. Also joining us was Ed White's son Trey, a Naval Aviator... kept many of our commercial pilot alumni well entertained. Chef of the event was none other than Charles Stone, retired GBI agent and friend to most all of us.. he did his typical remarkable job with the catfish.
Thanks again Charlie!

Our 2015 Muster Service
After the Muster Service and meal we held a brief business session in which President Ed White announced several changes he wants to initiate this coming year - first being that we are going to become more heavily involved in the recruitment effort at local high schools and plan to have a special meeting to include prospective cadets and their parents. Second is to make plans for future meetings and events several months in advance so we can each try to avoid conflicts. Third is to plan exciting events such as a camping and fishing weekend at Jack's bass pond and better planning for the annual shootout. Fourth is to reach out to local alumni who were once active in the club but no longer attend.
Message from our Club President
(This from an email sent to Tom McAlister of the Alumni Association)
On December 7, 2014 The Southside Atlanta Citadel Club held its annual Christmas gathering. We recognized Ray Mayer for his outstanding service and presented him with the CAA recognition certificate. Tom, this was very well received by not only Ray but also club members who felt it was deserved. As you and I have discussed previously, I believe that a formalized program to recognize Club officers that serve with distinction should be a consideration for the Association. As of the 7th, I assumed responsibility as our Club President and Todd Rivers ('88), an outstanding alum, assumed the position of vice president. Additionally, Banks Glover ('69) has agreed to stay on as our webmaster. We look forward to initiating an active cadet recruiting program in 2015, and the Atlanta Citadel Club has agreed to work with us on this effort.
