Serving the Children of the World

The Kiwanis Club of Cheshire is a volunteer community service organization. We engage in:

  • Community activities
  • Youth Organizations
  • Special needs projects

Our goals are met annually through member donations and fund-raising within the community. Our achievements and success are the result of the commitment and dedication of our members, as well as the generosity and support of the community at large.

The Cheshire Kiwanis Club was formed over sixty years ago, by a task force from the Kiwanis Clubs of the Towns of Wallingford and Naugatuck, who wanted to form a new club in their neighboring community. The Cheshire Kiwanis Club was chartered with 32 members in the fall of 1957.

Today, the Kiwanis Club of Cheshire is composed of members engaged in fields which include education, insurance, travel services, engineering, retail sales, marketing, securities management, construction, manufacturing, health administration, law, accounting, and child care. Our members range from employees and managers of governments and corporations, to small business owners and professionals, to self-employed individuals and homemakers. We have members just beginning to develop careers, members with maturing careers and members in active retirement.
