The Kiwanis Club of Boone County, Ky

The Kiwanis Club of Boone County is a Kentucky organization of service-minded men and women who respond to the unique needs of children in the northern Kentucky community. Our club was founded in Florence in 2015. Kiwanis clubs serve in 80 countries and geographic areas around the world and achieve what individuals cannot do alone. 

We are volunteers who specialize in helping children in Boone County and surrounding Northern Kentucky communities.  We want to offer support and mentor children, giving them the opportunity to achieve through experiencing, learning, dreaming and then succeeding. We raise funds to benefit local organizations such as Go-Pantry, Rob's Kids, Camp Corral, Mentoring Plus, the Salvation Army and are sponsors of the Ryle High School Key Club.

   The Kentucky Tennessee District of Kiwanis bestowed 
Four Meritorious Awards 
upon our Boone County Club at their Annual Conference held in Louisville, KY  August 2017 for Outstanding Service, Club Achievement, support of the Ryle High School Key Club, and Communication Techniques. In February of 2018 the KT District awarded us their "Distinguished Club Award" of 2016-2017 for our untiring efforts and continuing support as we serve the children of the world placing us in the top 5% of all clubs in the KT Organization.
