About Green River Kiwanis
 
Kiwanis is a service organization whose primary objective is "serving the children of the world."
 
The name "Kiwanis" was coined from an expression in an American Indian language of the Detroit area, Nunc Kee-wanis, which means "we trade" or "we have a good time."
 
The first Kiwanis club was formed in Detroit, Michigan on January 21, 1915. A year later, the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario was chartered, and Kiwanis International grew rapidly into a leading service club in America and Canada. In 1962, worldwide expansion was approved, and today Kiwanis clubs are active in every part of the world.
 
Green River Kiwanis in Evansville, Indiana contributes time, money, and labor to many local organizations, including Camp Carson, the BUG program, Special Olympics, Santa Clothes Club, Riley Hospital, Dream Center, Easter Seals, and high school and college athletics and scholarships. We also support a Circle K club, which is a Kiwanis club at the college level, at the University of Evansville, as well as Key Clubs at two local high schools.
