Celebrates 47 Years

This is a very special week for members of the Fort Myers Beach Kiwanis Club as they celebrate the local club’s 47th anniversary and the 100th birthday of Kiwanis International.

The local club, founded on May 31, 1968 with 25 members, has since doubled in size to 50 current members. Those 47 years have been busy ones for the club as they have lived the Kiwanis motto: "Serving the Children and Families of Our Community and the World.”
