The special guest speaker for the April 4 meeting of Tryon Kiwanis was Dr. Brian Crissey of the Polk Knights Chess Program at Polk County Schools. The chess program currently serves about 60 children and is seeking to expand. Crissey said chess is an excellent way to promote strategic thinking and discipline. The existing program was funded by a seed grant that is scheduled to run out in 2012. The group is working with Kiwanis Club of Tryon, which will be a sponsor. Donations to the program are tax-deductible. Shown above are Dr. Brian Crissey (left), Ernie Giannini of Tryon Kiwanis and Kathy Woodham, president of Tryon Kiwanis. (photo submitted by Sue Watson)
