Serving the Children of the World
Kiwanis is a worldwide service organization “dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time”. We are focused on improving lives through fellowship in service.
Boonslick Kiwanis Club is one of five Kiwanis clubs in Columbia, MO. Organized in 1966, Boonslick is one of the two breakfast clubs. We meet every Wednesday morning from 7:00 am to 8:00 am at Jack’s Gourmet Restaurant. Our group of over 40 members likes to have fun and informative meetings. Every meeting includes a speaker. Presentations are varied but always educational.
Our club participates in various fund-raising activities in order to provide financial help to needy groups in our community. Some of these activities include a Pancake breakfast, an annual 8K run and a dinner play. We are always looking for new ideas.
Kiwanis International has recently joined forces with UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. To learn more about this project, the disease and the ongoing efforts to eliminate it please click here.
We are first and foremost a service organization and this is where Kiwanis really shines. We like to volunteer our time to help others. Some of the service projects that we have participated in include working at Lee Elementary school, helping to refurbish the Boys and Girls Club, Clean up Columbia, the Community Nursery School, Rainbow House and helping to clean up the Kiwanis Park to name a few. We also work with Rockbridge students through Key Club, and the Aktion Club for adults with disabilities.
If you want to make a difference in our community, please consider joining us on Wednesday mornings.
