Kiwanis is a global organization of member-volunteers who are dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time. We help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged and care for the sick. We develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research and much more. We believe that helping a child helps the world. Working together, Kiwanis members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream and succeed, great things happen!
MONTANA DISTRICT OF KIWANIS
The Montana District was created on June 24, 1921 by the International Board of Trustees. On August 29, a meeting of the four clubs (Great Falls, Billings, Missoula, and Bozeman) elected George E. Snell the first Governor. He was re-elected at Great Falls the next year, and served until the end of 1923. It was strongly encouraged that the Montana clubs become a district formed of many states, but being an independent sort the answer was a resounding "no". The first club in the district was Great Falls, completed September 1, 1920. The second was Billings, completed October 18, 1920. (*)
Currently, the Montana District has 41 clubs in 9 divisions. Kiwanis Globally itself has more than 8,500 clubs in 80 nations of more than half a million members.
Kiwanis is once again joining forces with UNICEF to confront another threat to the world’s children.
