Creating a Better World, One Community and One Child at a Time

Children are Priority One

Come Join Us!

Kiwanis is a service organization with a focus on youth. We meet twice monthly on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays at Kohler's Catering (see map below). Social at 5:30 pm, Dinner at 6 pm followed by a speaker.

Just For Busy People

We are forming a satellite group for people who want to serve the community's children as a member of our club, but who otherwise have very limited time! Interested? Contact Marcia Hudson at 937-416-3525

Goodbye McCalls: You Will Be Missed!

On June 22nd we said our farewells to Tallye and John McCall. We will miss their dedication and good humor. We wish them well as they travel to their new home near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Kids Lunches Sponsored

The first week of June, club members prepared and served lunches to more than 100 Kettering children at the Trails of Oak Creek. Some of the scheduled activities included visits from Kettering Police and Fire Departments. Our club looks forward to this service project and renewing friendships with kids from prior years. This summer long activity is supervised by Kettering Partners for Healthy Youth with individual service groups each sponsoring a week.

Dogs Welcome!

Dog Treats will be available at the Kiwanis Tent, across from the Routsong Funeral Home, at Centerville Fourth of July Festival! Thanks to Crooked Handle Brewery in Springboro for donating Spent Grains! The peanut butter flavor of these biscuits is mouth-watering ... so we are told from our test dogs!

Club to Participate in Holiday@Home

Look for our float at the Holiday@Home Parade in Kettering on Labor Day. We are inviting Key Club members from Altar, Centerville, and STEM High schools to join us. For the second year, we will have middle school aged members of the Builder's Club from Dayton STEM.
