KCA Centennial Minute - The club's 75th Anniversary is celebrated
As the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta begins it's Centennial Celebration, the Centennial Committee has created a speaker series to highlight people and activities from the club's past 100 years!

The Tuesday, April 17 meeting will feature a past president from the decade May 1, 1998 to May 1, 2008. Like today, Kiwanians were busy learning, serving and connecting those years – the past prez will tell you more, some things sentimental, some funny, and all interesting.


If you missed the Centennial Minutes from any of our past periods in Atlanta Kiwanis history, you can view the highlights  on our website!  You can read the scripts and see photos from when our club was founded up through the time when the first women joined our club.  Just go to our home page at and click on the Centennial Celebration tab!

Philanthropy in the Classroom is a program designed to familiarize elementary school children with the concept of philanthropy.  On May 9 from 8:30 – 10 AM, volunteers from the Atlanta Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta will visit Centennial Academy Charter School to:

  • Read a children’s book about philanthropy to a third-grade class
  • Discuss the meaning of philanthropy with students
  • Provide support to students as they create drawings that express what philanthropy means to them

For further information about the program and to sign up, please visit

Please note: A background check is required for all Kiwanis volunteers. If you are interested in participating, please check with Karen Losin to be sure your background check is current.

We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for about 6 individuals who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink

Kiwanis Club of Atlanta Car Decals
Don't get the BOOT!  Be sure your car has a Kiwanis Club of Atlanta car decal properly displayed on your vehicle.
The security company contracted by Lanier Parking will be booting all cars that are parked in the reserved parking places and that do not have a valid decal on their car identifying them as attending the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta luncheon.  So if you arrive prior to 11:45 am on Tuesday, please make sure you have a parking decal on your car.  You can get a decal from Karen at the luncheon meeting, and then place it on the right back window (passenger side) from inside your car.  They are static cling, so easy to put on and take off!
