Description:

The Sabetha Kiwanis meet every Thursday Noon at the Buzz Cafe Oxen House, 800 Main St., Sabetha, Kansas. We feature a rowdy bunch that likes to have fun. We always have an interesting and informative guest speaker. Visitors are welcome and will be made to feel at home!

Kiwanis International was founded January 21, 1915, in Detroit, Michigan. Kiwanis is an organization devoted to the principle of service; to the advancement of individual, community, and national welfare; and to the strengthening of international goodwill. Kiwanis membership spans the globe, with more than 8,500 Kiwanis clubs with more than 315,000 members in 82 nations and geographic areas, giving on average $70 million and 6.5 million volunteer hours for community service each year.

The name "Kiwanis" was adapted from the expression "Nunc Kee-wanis" in the Otchipew (Native American) language, meaning "We have a good time," "We make a noise," or, under another construction, "We trade or advertise." Some persons prefer to pronounce the word "ki"; others, "kee."

Kiwanians are individuals who give a little of their time to make their communities and the world better places in which to live and work. As members of a local club, members have the opportunity to:

Make business and professional contacts.
Learn first-hand about local, national, and international issues.
Improve and use leadership skills.
Participate in the life of their community and world.
Develop lifelong friendships.
