"Serving the children of the world"
Welcome! We are a local member of Kiwanis International, one of the largest Service Clubs in the world. Our Club is a great way to get involved in making our community an even better place.
Our Club meets every Friday (Except as noted in the Club Calendar) for lunch from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. at Ames Golf & Country Club, 5752 George Washington Carver Ave, Ames, IA. Here are directions to our meeting location.
We'd be delighted if you joined us as our guest at one of our meetings or a service project like the Bike Rpdeo we recently completed. Please go to our Contact /Join! page at the left and drop us a line. Someone will get back with you. Here is a sample of our weekly programs.
Miracle League. In collaboration with Ames Parks and Recreation Department and Story County Arc, Kiwanis clubs in Story County are planning to build a Miracle League playground and ball park in Ames, in Innis Grove Park. The estimated cost is $1.5 million. We hope to have the facility completed in July, 2018. The completed facility will be staffed and maintained by members of Kiwanis clubs in Story County. Public meeting scheduled Thursday, May 11, 2017 - see details here.
Ames Noon Kiwanis recently presented $1000 to support the activities of Teen Maze. Gerri Bugg (left) is the Community, Youth, and Family Development Director for Youth and Shelter Services. Bugg is lead coordinator for Teen Maze. Ronnie Lindeman (right), Noon Kiwanis member, presented the $1000 gift to Bugg. Teen Maze is a week-long annual event that reaches some 1200 7th graders from 14 central Iowa school districts in four counties. The event format allows young people to experience life situations in a safe environment, and helps them learn to make positive decisions on issues including finances, nutrition, social media and relationships. Teen Maze is conducted with the help of more than 300 volunteers.
Thanks to all the volunteers from our club and others from the community who helped make this year's Bike Rodeo, May 6th, a roaring success.
