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 Kiwanianne Tea and Designer Bag Bingo, among others, are very well-attended by members and friends, and enjoyed by all!


The Kiwanis Club of Glendora Kiwaniannes will host a membership meeting September 6 at Rubel Castle from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  Cost to attend and feast on a tri tip dinner is $20. Women in the community are invited to attend.  Sign up here.

The Kiwaniannes, chartered as a club in 1984, meets in friendship and raises funds for scholarships for local students, grants for teachers to bring art into the classroom, and supports other nonprofit organizations.

The club’s main fund raisers includes a Designer Bag Bingo event in the fall and a Community Tea in the spring.

At the September 6 meeting, guests will be able to take a guided tour through Rubel Castle, a large structure built completely of rocks from the area and furnished with antiques, memorabilia and novelty items.  The castle was built by Michael Rubel and is run by the Glendora Historical Society.

The Glendora Kiwaniannes sponsored the Annual Leadership Academy June 5-9, 2017 for seventeen middle school students.    Workshops and activities to promote team building, decision making, conflict resolution, and public speaking were offered.  Students learned these skills to help them take on leadership roles in school and in the larger community.  Watch video here.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  We are part of Kiwanis International, an organization serving children for over 100 years.
