What is the Kiwanis Club of Weston?
The Club offers opportunities for personal involvement in the improvement of our community, the nation and world. As a group, members achieve what individuals cannot alone.
Specifically, Kiwanis is a nonsectarian, nonpolitical service and philanthropic organization. It does not prescribe a way of life for others. It often does, however, act as a forum allowing members to share information and recommend projects to help Weston become an even better place to live.
What does Kiwanis do?
Essentially the Kiwanis Club of Weston performs community service focusing on children, helping less fortunate residents, and by contributing to the work of other community organizations such as PTO, scouting, EMS, fire and police departments, etc. The Kiwanis Club meets most Saturdays from September through June for breakfast and to socialize and plan for future activities and after breakfast to either hear from a guest speakers or participate in a community service project. Members prize the lifelong friendships formed being associated with the Kiwanis Club of Weston. To find out more about our club please contact our membership chair, via email.
