Since 1974 the Kiwanis Club of Weston, Connecticut has supported worthy causes in our community and surrounding areas through a combination of community service, philanthropy and assistance to youth and to people of all ages. Our members are men and women with a connection to Weston.

The Kiwanis Club of Weston, an award-winning club repeatedly recognized by Kiwanis International for earning "Distinguished Club" status, has earned this coveted status again for 2012/2013. Our club is also the home of the Outstanding Club Secretary, New England District of Kiwanis, 2011/1012. Members Revs. Bernard Wilson and Kelly Rogers received Kiwanis Internationals first-ever Humanitarian Award at the 2013 convention.  Kiwanis Magazine featured our club as one of four great clubs.

We meet for breakfast Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m (except July and August) at the Norfield Congregational Church Parish Hall. Meetings often feature presentations by local, state, and national political figures and programs of general interest. Other meetings are followed by community service projects.


Weston Kiwanis celebrated the end-of-summer with a picnic for the 17th time at Fred and Shirley Schneider's home on Sunday, August 31, 2014.

Wood splitting has been a major community service project to benefit those in need in the Weston community for over 20 years. Donations of wood and proceeds of sales go entirely to help those in our community on the Social Services list to help with their heating needs. We have split and delivered as many as 130 truckloads of wood in a year. Aside from service to our fellow Westonites, the wood splitting is an opportunity for camaraderie. Jane Young Anglim will again be providing one of her gourmet luncheon feasts for the workers. Don’t miss this. Please help Jane plan for numbers to be served by responding to this e-mail to let her know whether you will be able to join us on Saturday and bring gloves.
