The Capital District of Kiwanis International (composed of all the Kiwanis Clubs in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia) was organized on August 29, 1918 with only two clubs. Now, over 100 years later, the Capital District remains active with 6 regions, 17 divisions and over 140 clubs.
Kiwanis International is a global community of clubs, members and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time. Today, we stand with more than 550,000 members from K-Kids to Key Club to Kiwanis and many ages in between in 80 countries and geographic areas. Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children, such as fighting hunger, improving literacy and offering guidance.
Kiwanis clubs host nearly 150,000 service projects each year.
The Capital District Board of Trustees at its May 16, 2021 meeting declared in accordance with Article III, Section 16 that an emergency condition still exists preventing our ability to hold a full in-person District Convention.
As a result, a hybrid Education Conference is being planned for August 20-22, 2021 at the Hotel Roanoke in Roanoke, VA that will provide events for in-person attendees with some limited online streaming. Signing a COVID-19 liability waiver will be required for all person registering to attend in-person.
The business session will be conducted in-person by all Delegates-at-Large (2020-21 District Officers and Past Governors).
More details will be available shortly. Please watch this site for registration information. ... See MoreSee Less

Here is kiwanis recruiting in action!!!!
Today I had a diagnostic procedure at an imaging center in Williamsburg. The very proficient and friendly technician noticed that I was wearing a Kiwanis polo which stated "MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR CHILDREN". She immediately asked if I had anything to do with The Childrens Fishing Clinic. You know, the one where KIDS are taught about marine life, given a fishing pole and tackle , a tee shirt and fed breakfast and lunch. The one where they learn to bait a hook and experience catching fish. When I said yes she said that her children had never fished before and now they loved to fish and talk about marine life. She thanked us for engaging her children and sparking their interest in natural opportunities.
If ever I wondered whether or not we Kiwanians make a difference now I know. One CAN make a difference... You can make a difference.
Are you interested In making a difference? PM me and I will invite you to learn more about Kiwanis. For me, at least, " It's all about the KIDS" ... See MoreSee Less
