Club History

The Galion Kiwanis Club was chartered as one of 7,700 clubs in 80 countries in 1921. Our motto is "Serving the Children of the World".

  • One big change we have seen in our group over the years is the addition of women into the club by Kiwanis International vote in 1986.  Our group has had several women Presidents since that time and women have become a vibrant and important addition to our club. 


  • We have had many highlights and awards over the years.  We have sponsored little league teams, helped out with Special Olympics, and are a gold star group in highway cleanup.  We have also received many distinguished club awards over the years.


  • One project that has been very gratifying for members over the years is our annual Kiwanis Kids Toy Drive program where we help families in need to make sure children have a happy holiday.
