The first time I was posted on a public magazine was volunteering at the Pancake festival which Kiwanis Club of Salisbury, NC organizes every year. Today I officially joined the club.
Who We Are:
“Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world
one child and one community at a time.”
- Kiwanians are men and women banded together to make their communities better places in which to live.
- Kiwanians perform community service beyond the capability of government. They work collectively or through committees. They attend regularly scheduled meetings for fellowship and inspiration. They serve because they want to serve. Kiwanis makes it possible.
- Kiwanians work with young people and senior citizens; they solve community and social problems; they provide support for spiritual and patriotic endeavors.
- Kiwanis’purpose is “service to Youth, Community, and Nation.” The clubs are called “Service Clubs” – a phenomenon of the 21st century.
- Kiwanis ranks are open to all men and women of good character; the cost is nominal; the reward in personal satisfaction is great.
- Kiwanis clubs are located around the world.
