A worldwide volunteer organization, Kiwanis International was founded in 1915 in Detroit and now with headquarters in Indianapolis.
Kiwanis International is a thriving organization of service- and community-minded individuals who support children and young adults around the world. More than 600,000 Kiwanis-family members in 91 countries respond to the needs of their communities and pool their financial and human resources to address issues worldwide. Through these efforts, Kiwanis International truly is "Serving the Children of the World."
The Kiwanis Club of Barrie was started in 1922 and is the longest serving Service Club in Simcoe County. On August 15, 2012 we celebrated 90 years of service.
Membership includes men and women who wish to make the community a better place by their volunteer efforts.
Supporting the community requires volunteers. "WE NEED YOU."
The club is located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada and can be contacted at: P.O. Box 442, Barrie, ON, L4M 4T7 or by e-mailing the Secretary
The Kiwanis Club of Barrie is always looking for new members who are interested in making the world a better place to live for the millions of children and youth who benefit greatly with support to meet their needs.
If you are interested in joining an active service club, come out and visit us every Monday (holiday Mondays excepted) for lunch at 12 noon. Doors open at 11:30. We meet at the 80 Bradford St., Unit 549. Locally this is known as the old GE building which is located behind Tim Horton's on Bradford St. Access for the meetings is Door 7 which is located on the end of the building. Drive to the left side of the buidling and on your left you will then see a very large parking lot. Once parked you will see a large #7 on the wall of the building and an a-frame yellow "Kiwanis" sign on the walkway with a large overhead sign above the door. Or you can enter by the front door on the west side of the building.
