Our History

FOUNDED IN 1915 IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN, KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL NOW COMPRISES 600,000 MEMBERS – MEN, WOMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS – WORLDWIDE

The Kiwanis Breakfast Club of Seminole was chartered in 1979 with 27 members representing a diverse cross-section of the business community in the Seminole, Florida area. The original roster included elected officials, bankers, business owners, educators, accountants and legal professionals. The club’s first meeting took place at Chief Charley’s Restaurant in Seminole.

Today the club is one of 6 Kiwanis clubs in Division 13. The club is a member of Kiwanis International, which serves the United States as well as 80 other countries.

Our club meets every Tuesday at 7:15 am at Lake Seminole Square, 8333 Seminole Blvd on the 3rd floor, in the Card Room.

Come join us on any Tuesday morning!

 

Our club’s mission of community service has not wavered since 1979, and today the club is known throughout the community for programs targeted at the health, education and well-being of children.
