Kiwanis International 
Kiwanis International was started in 1915 in Detroit, and its international offices are currently located in Indianapolis.  Kiwanis was founded on six permanent objectives which still ring true today
  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships
  • To promote the adoption and application of higher social, business, and professional standards. 
  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through this club, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build a better community. 
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion  and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
