Serving the Children of the World!

The Kiwanis Club of Lima, Ohio was founded in 1919, one of the oldest clubs in Kiwanis International which was founded in 1915.  During this time, the Lima Kiwanis Club has been an integral part of the community serving the children of Allen County. Included in our major projects was the contribution of land for Camp Woodhaven for the use of the Girl Scouts; providing a sapling tree to all first graders in Allen County; support of the Allen County Museum by the funding of the "One Room Schoolhouse";and annual scholarships through the Ron Richards Scholarship fund.

Our club fosters fellowship through its weekly luncheon meetings at the Milano Cafe. The weekly program features a speaker on a topic of interest to members.
