We hope that it will serve as a means to help you become as enthusiastic about Kiwanis as we are! Every day, Kiwanians throughout the world are revitalizing neighborhoods, organizing youth sports programs, tutoring, building playgrounds, and raising countless dollars to donate to organizations which support the needs of children and their communities. Kiwanis members help feed the hungry, care for the sick, shelter the homeless, and educate the disenfranchised. We are dedicated to “changing the world, one child and one community at a time.”
Chartered in 1923, the Haverhill Kiwanis Club has grown to be a viable and valuable resource in the community. Kiwanis Club of Haverhill raises over twenty thousand dollars ($20,000) a year through its annual Golf Classic, & Valentine Raffle as well as other fund raisers. These funds are used specifically to address the needs of children in our wider community. And we have a great time doing it! We have a delicious lunch together every week and we have become a tight-knit group of friends sharing diverse backgrounds and careers. Our events make us an integral part of this beautiful city as we serve community meals, hold bike helmet give away events, support our area high schools in leadership skills with Key Clubs, scholarships to graduating seniors, camperships for children in need, and many more youth emphasis donations.
The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents”. It was coined from a Native American expression, Nunc Kee-Wanis. We are ordinary people in Haverhill performing extraordinary work by sharing our time and talents. In turn we develop our own leadership skills and broaden our scope of awareness.
Kiwanis meets every Tuesday at Haverhill Country Club, Bricket Lane, Haverhill, MA, beginning at 12:00 noon. Guests are always welcome! Typical Tuesday meetings include discussion of a variety of Kiwanis related activities and a speaker to speak on a variety of topics ranging from pertinent social issues to human interest stories related to our very own community.
