Happy 97th birthday, Kiwanis!

We are 97 years strong—and still going. On January 21, the Kiwanis International organization celebrates our official birthday, which is the day the Detroit No. 1 Club chartered in 1915.   It’s a good time to reflect on and celebrate all that’s been accomplished in our 97 years of serving children around the world.

Where would children in your community be without Kiwanis?  

Here are some ideas on how to mark the date.

Social: Serve birthday cake at one of your club’s January meetings or to your SLP club meetings.

Philanthropic: Send $97 to The Eliminate Project.

PR: Cover the costs for the local ice cream shop to give away a “Kiwanis sundae” to its next 97 customers.

Service: Plant 97 bulbs around a neighborhood playground.  


Make it special!
