What is a Stamford Kiwanian?
We are young, middle aged and retired. We are men and women. We are professionals, educators, parents, managers, team members. We hail from all walks of life. We are volunteers working together and giving our best to change the world, one child and one community at a time.
We are part of an international organization that is 250,000 strong and growing!
Look in the mirror, a Kiwanian may very well be staring back at you!
