Kiwanis is over 100 years old internationally and 97 years old in Kankakee and has been grounded in service to the community since its inception. Children and service to them and organizations that serve them are our first priority.
We meet Monday noon at Tucci’s Restaurant, 1560 IL-50, Bourbonnais, part of the Northfield Square Mall Complex. Most meetings have a speaker presenting programs of community interest. Members attend as often as they can.
Complete the application for Kiwanis membership to join us as we strive to “improve the world one child and one community at a time”. We invest over $20,000 each year into the community from our Kiwanis Peanut Day Fundraiser. Here are activities besides meeting, enjoying lunch and selling peanuts. Please review highlights of our “active in the community” service club:
Funds for the above projects come from peanut sales.
Each Kiwanian is asked to contact local businesses in the summer to purchase peanuts to achieve total contribution of $300 or more, and then work a street corner on September Peanut Day (or some earlier activity) for 3-4 hours.
