Kiwanis International was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan, and became an international organization with the creation of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario, the following year. The Kiwanis Club of Greater Waterville formed in 1923 and has been serving the children of the greater Waterville area ever since.
Each year we do a number of small events around our Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) program including going to local schools and child care centers to read and hand out books. We also host our annual Children's Health and Safety Fair where we give out free bike helmets and have a number of vendors come with activities for children centered around health and safety. This program is completely free to all who come.
Without our volunteers, none of this could be accomplished. Feel free to come to a meeting and see what Kiwanis is all about!
