National Kiwanis Legacy
 
  • Kiwanis was founded in Detroit, Michigan, on January 21, 1915. 

  • In the early years, Kiwanis clubs focused on business networking,but even then, members were serving the needs of the poor.

  • By 1919, the organization had changed its focus from business to service.

  • Kiwanis became an international organization in 1916 with the organization of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario.

  • Kiwanis limited its membership to the United States and Canada until 1962 when worldwide expansion was approved.

  • Until 1987, Kiwanis was a male-only organization. But after years of debate and growing support, women’s membership was received overwhelmingly.
 
Kiwanis Club of South Orlando
Local Legacy
 
When a group of some thirty Orlando businessmen were approached to form this club in 1960, they were made aware of the lofty ideals and objectives of Kiwanis International. 

Many of these men were, or had been members of other civic clubs that had become “knife and fork” groups whose accomplishments were frequently measured by good fellowship and increasing waistlines.

In a “no nonsense meeting” to finally determine whether to chart this club, it was decided that every current and prospective member must become committed to one hundred percent involvement in some phase of the club’s effort to improve our community.

The club’s current membership have evolved into a fraternal-like organization responsible for the many contributions to our community through their spirit and effort.
