Kids Need People To Look Out For Them.

Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Local clubs look out for our communities, and the international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as disease and poverty.

We are generous with our time. We are creative with our ideas. We are passionate about making a difference. And we have fun along the way.

Come join us in the work we do to change the lives of children and our community together. Our bottom line is service to others. Our club represents some 80 people who have in common the heart to serve.

The Objects of Kiwanis International (Our values)

The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.

Object 1 - To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.

Object 2 - To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.

Object 3 - To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.

Object 4 - To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.

Object 5 - To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.

Object 6 - To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
