Glendora Kiwaniannes

"Serving our community since 1984"

Focus on Service

 Our mission is to serve the community through various programs and events, and to promote friendships and connections while doing so. A few of our service projects include providing Artist in Residence grants to teachers in our school district, running a Leadership Academy for incoming middle school students during the summer, and serving dinner to local seniors. We hold exciting fundraisers throughout the year to help support these service projects. Our annual Designer Bag Bingo, among others, are very well-attended by members and friends, and enjoyed by all!

On April 18, the Glendora Kiwaniannes celebrated 34 years of service to the community at a celebration held at the Glendora Country Club.  The club, chartered in 1984 on April 18, supports nearly 20 community organizations including the Glendora schools, senior center, and local food pantry.

At the event, current President of the organization, Sherry Heinrich, announced the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award which was given to Carolyn Thomas  for her exemplary efforts to redesign the club’s web page and her work at the club’s secretary.

The Kiwaniannes are affiliated with Kiwanis International and meet the first and third Wednesdays of the month at the Glendora Continental.  At the May 2 meeting, teachers from the Glendora School District will talk about how they used their $700 Kiwanianne grant to bring the arts into the classroom. The public is invited to attend.  Cost for dinner is $15.


May Meetings

 At their May 2 meeting, the Glendora Kiwaniannes will hear how six Glendora Unified School District teachers used their $700 Artist in Residence Grant. “It’s truly inspiring how these creative teachers used a small amount of money to do big things in the classroom,” said Sherry Heinrich, president of the Kiwaniannes. The Kiwaniannes have funded the program for at least two decades. On May 16, representatives from Vasquez Avocado Farm will talk about their local, organic grove of avocados.  The Kiwaniannes meet the first and third Wednesdays of the month at the Glendora Continental Restaurant.  Cost to attend is $15.  This nonprofit organization works to serve the youth and seniors in the community.
