Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
Working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you help improve a community or give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!
The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.” It was coined from an American Indian expression, Nunc Kee-wanis.
We fondly now use the acronym “Kiwanis Is Where A Need Is Served”.
Founding of Kiwanis
Kiwanis was founded in Detroit, Michigan, on January 21, 1915. In the early years, Kiwanis clubs focused on business networking, but even then, members were serving the needs of the poor. By 1919, the organization had changed its focus from business to service. Kiwanis became an international organization in 1916 with the organization of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario. Kiwanis limited its membership to the United States and Canada until 1962 when worldwide expansion was approved.
Kiwanis Club of Tri-Town was organized on December 11, 2019, with a dedicated group of individuals, to support the thriving Mountain Lakes Key Club.
Recently the Kiwanis Club of Tri-Town sponsored two Food Drives and donated all the much-needed food to Loaves and Fishes, Boonton.
New members always welcomed. Join Kiwanis Club of Tri-Town at IHOP, 304 Wootton Road, Boonton. The members meet the second and fourth Monday at 6:30 (except holidays). For more information click here.
