The Kiwanis Club Of Glens Falls

The Queensbury Hotel
88 Ridge Street

Glens Falls , NY 12801

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.

Our members develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds and raise funds for pediatric research. We help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged and care for the sick. Working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. And along the way, club members share friendship and laughter.

Kiwanis International was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan. In the early years, members focused on business networking. In 1916, Kiwanis became an international organization with the creation of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario. In 1919, the organization changed its focus to service. By 1962, worldwide expansion was approved. In 1987, women officially were allowed into the membership.

The Kiwanis Club of Glens Falls started in 1925. It has a long history of promoting the benefit of children and the local community. The civic aspect of the Club is encouraged above any other benefit of the Club. In fact, members are fined if they discuss business at a Club meeting. The Club embraced the relatively late development of allowing women members into Kiwanis. Presently, the membership is fairly evenly split between men and women. There have been five women presidents over the last 15 years.
