Kiwanis About Us

Kiwanis International is a global service organization dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world. If you mention Kiwanis to an old time Avon Laker they are likely to respond with Pancake Breakfasts, Scholarships, or possibly Safety Town. Founded in 1946, our local Kiwanis Club is the parent organization to the Avon Lake High School Key Club, Troy and Learwood Builders Clubs and the Elementary Schools K-Kids. To date Avon Lake Kiwanis has awarded over $115,000 in scholarships over the past seven years to Avon Lake seniors in high school.
