THE HISTORY OF KIWANIS


The Kiwanis Club of Haslett-Okemos was created when the Haslett and Okemos clubs agreed to merge in 2018. Kiwanis International was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan. In the early years, members focused on business networking, but in 1916, Kiwanis became an international organization with the creation of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario. In 1919, the organization changed its focus to service and by 1962, worldwide expansion was approved. In 1987, women officially were allowed into the membership and now Kiwanis International is a global organization with nearly 300,000 adult members in 8,500 clubs in 80 countries.
