History

Welcome to the Kiwanis Club
 serving Wythe County and Wytheville, Virginia

We invite you to join us on the first and third Monday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Chapel of the Carrington Place here in Wytheville.  Then at 6:30 we go to the main dining room for dinner.  This is an extended care facility that we wish to support with our meetings.  They provide a nice dinner and wonderful meeting place for our club.  Check our "Where We Meet" page for directions and join us for good fellowship.

 

The Kiwanis Mission for our District and Club


The Capital District of Kiwanis International is committed to be the leading worldwide service organization by providing the highest quality of support and service to our communities in an efficient and effective manner. By promoting membership growth; increasing communication; improving education and training; participating with our sponsored youth and continuing "hands on" service to all those in need, we will improve lives throughout the district and the world, as well as enriching the "Kiwanis Experience" for each and every member.

 

What are our Values

The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.

What is our Emphasis

In a word, our emphasis is KIDS.  Our service projects are aimed a the youth of our community, our nation and the world.  Our projects target kids from first born through teenage years.  We buy age appropriate books and give them to preschoolers through Social Services and other contact groups to make sure all kids own at least one book.  Our members volunteer to be reading aids for the first graders in our local school.  Some kids need extra attention. We support the After Prom Parties to help keep our teens safe while they have fun.  Our college scholarship program is in place to help our young adults further their education. We are interested in our community and the future leaders of our community.  If you would like to help, take a second to send us an email or call our President.  We would love to meet you and invite you to join the Kiwanis.
