KIWANIS CLUB OF LIMA OHIO
Serving the Children of the Lima Area and 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 sapling trees to all first graders in Allen County; supporting the Allen County Museum by funding and providing volunteers for the One Room Schoolhouse; and giving annual music scholarships through the Ron Richards Scholarship Fund.

The club fosters fellowship through weekly luncheon meetings. Meetings are held at 11:30 AM on Tuesdays at the Milano Club. The weekly program features a speaker on a topic of interest to members.  The business meeting occurrs the third Tuesday of each month. For further information please  contact  Robert L Day, Jr. at rld@bright.net.

The Kiwanis Club of Lima Ohio is an active member of the Lima-Allen County Chamber of Commerce and supports community efforts including Family Promise of Lima-Allen County and the Allen County Museum Christmas Tree Festival. During the summer of 2015, our club partnered with the Heartland Image Foundation to sponsor a three-week intense bootcamp for students to learn filmmaking from industry professionals.  Students learned from a wide array of artists-in-residence and produced a product to industry standards that was broadcast as a public service announcement (PSA) for our local club.
