In 2016, the Monroe Kiwanis Club celebrates its 95TH anniversary of service to Monroe and the surrounding area. We cordially invite you to attend a meeting and to consider membership.


Kiwanis International is a global community of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Kiwanians serve communities in more than 80 countries, and we’ve been an integral part of Monroe since 1921. Some of our many local projects are detailed in the accompanying brochure.


Our Kiwanis Club meets every Thursday noon at Turner Hall for lunch, social time and an educational program. Recent programs have included: Green County Sheriff Mark Rohloff, Behring Senior Center director Tammy Derrickson, radio station owner Scott Thompson, attorney George Vernon on teaching law in Eastern Europe, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cara Carper, Canyon Boy Scout Camp updates, and a picnic at our local Kiwanis Youth Cabin.


Make a positive impact in our community. Learn something new every week. Have lunch with friends. Have lunch with folks you haven’t met before. Listen to experts talk about community events and institutions. Discover shared interests. Laugh a little. Learn a lot. Have fun. Catch the energy of Monroe Kiwanis.


Annual dues are $115, or $145 for a couple. Weekly meetings are $10 for hot buffet or $8 for soup and salad. You only pay when you can attend.


I can’t attend meetings every week? You’re not the only one! Come when you can. Although we encourage regular attendance, many of our members cannot attend every week. However, they enjoy coming when they can, and they like being part of this dynamic community organization.


We invite you to attend a meeting as our guest. Please contact any member, or Nikki or Bobbie, to tell us when you would like to attend.
