Our club was charted January 6th, 1919. Since that time the Kiwanis organization has grown where we are now part of a larger group in Division One of the Texas-Oklahoma District. With the addition of a larger volunteer base the organization has had a much larger impact on solving the bigger problems that children of the world face. We are thank for the many leaders over the decades that have made a difference in the children in our community.
Our clubs theme for 2015 is "Reach Out". We hope you will join us in our quest to reach out to the community to help children in our area and around the world. Even a small effort on your part will make a difference in a child's life. When we reach out we are building a better future for all. Our club has several activities and programs to reach our goals. But like all good programs they need support from people. We invite you to become an active Kiwanis member to enjoy the interaction with others for a common good. During the journey you will meet interesting people at our meetings and learn about other worthy activities in our area. The Kiwanis members of downtown Fort Worth look forward to meeting you.
