Kiwanis Club of Rochester

Serving the Children of

Rochester, Olmsted County and the World

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers,

dedicated to improving

the world

one child and one community at a time.

We are a group of individuals from many walks of life who enjoy doing things together for the betterment of our community and the people in it.

We meet weekly at Homewood Suites (next door to Courtyard Merriot 161 13th Avenue SW, Rochester, MN 55902).

We have a few opening exercises, short business announcements, some humor and then a program of interest.

Topics are varied and are coordinated by the current month's Circle of Service team.

Anyone with questions about activities or membership, please contact: Charlie Graham 288-8525 cgraham120@charter.net, Clare Warren 254-2087 clarew60@gmail.com
