Weekly Lunch Meetings at Tuscarawas County Senior Center Tuesdays from 12PM - 1PM
Objectives of Kiwanis:
To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life. To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships. To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards. To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship. To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities. To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
Kiwanis Club supports programs, organizations and others through financial awards and through the participation of members in many worthwhile efforts in the Dover-New Philadelphia area.
|Description||The Dover-New Philadelphia Kiwanis Club has combined the efforts of individual clubs in the two cities with the goal of serving the youth of our community. The Clubs combined in the fall of 2016 and have meetings every Tuesday at noon at the Tuscarawas County Senior Center at Dover. New members always are welcome! For details, send us a message and we will arrange a time to talk in more detail and answer your questions.|
There are nearly 600,000 Kiwanis members internationally. Annually these clubs raise more than $107 million and dedicate more than 18 million volunteer hours to strengthen communities and serve children. Members of every age attend regular meetings, experience fellowship, raise funds for various causes and participate in service projects that help their communities.
2012 - 2015 Kiwanis Global Campaign for children is called The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus (www.TheEliminateProject.org) aims to raise US$110 million and save the lives of a 129 million mothers and their future babies. In partnership with UNICEF, Kiwanis is committing by 2015 to eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus, a disease that kills one baby every nine minutes. By targeting this disease, Kiwanis will not only save lives but also pave the way for other interventions that will boost maternal health and child survival among the poorest, most underserved women and children in the world.
