“Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.”
The Kiwanis Club of Arlington is about providing service to the community and having fun in the process
Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different—so each Kiwanis club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things happen.
Some of the activities for the club were offering support for the Arlington school district bond measures and helping with the annual U.G. N. Drive. The Bond measure passed and the U.G. N. drive was successful. Other support was given to the Boy Scout Troop, Arlington High School football program and Darrington basketball accomplishments. This is typical of the support that most Kiwanis Clubs give to the communities in which they serve.
Kiwanis Clubs around the world have always been concerned with and involved in the welfare of young people and their families.
