MEETINGS: We meet on the first, second, and third Mondays of each month at 6:30 p.m. The fourth Monday, and the occasional fifth Monday, have been designated as "Service Work Night" at a different local agency each month. Guests are cordially invited to share a meal with us and learn about opportunities to join us for volunteer service that contributes to the betterment of our community. Please see our Meeting Schedule for the latest information about when and where we gather "to serve the children of the world."
VOLUNTEER SERVICE NIGHTS: Our fourth-Monday service work nights typically take place at a local non-profit. See News items to the right of this page and Photo Gallery to see what we do at these agencies. Our Kiwanis Partners page shows the agencies with which we have worked over the past year or so. See also our Projects page for more info. #KidsNeedKiwanis
THINK GLOBALLY: Kiwanis International was founded in Detroit, Michigan in 1915. There are over 350,000 Kiwanians and more than 600,000 K-Family members in 84 countries around the world. KI's current worldwide service project, in conjunction with UNICEF, aims to Eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from the face of the earth. This project follows KI's previous successful project, also with UNICEF, of eliminating Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD), the leading preventable cause of intellectual disabilities, worldwide.
