Sponsored by the Traverse City Kiwanis Club, the organization of Kiwanis of Kalkaska was completed Sept. 16 1981. At a Dec. 2, 1981 dinner celebration, the charter was presented by Paul TomShany.
James Husted served as the first president and Robert Bryant was our first secretary.
There were 27 charter members which dropped to a low of 14 during the past 30 years, then went to a high of about 70, and currently our roster lists 17 members.
We build through such service projects as:
supporting the Commission on Aging, Hospice, Women's Resource Center, Salvation Army, KAIR, Kalkaska County Library, Cancer Society, new mothers and their babies, schools, preschools, youth organizations, emergency service agencies, Kalkaska Memorial Health Center, Health Department, Long-term Care Center, children's parties, Winterfest, National Trout Festival, Easter egg hunt, scholarships and many other community projects.
