LYNDEN NOON KIWANIS

Our S T E M  event drew 1186 children and parents. Please see new photo album for fun and Thanks to all participants.

Over the years our club has been a valuable contributor to the development of Lynden and northern Whatcom County. Since the  Lynden club historically was part of a district including lower British Columbia, members frequently engaged in cross-border fellowship and supported regional activities.

Besides giving money annually to Lynden programs, the club has assisted with hands-on service to efforts such as the Hope Center food bank, the Special Olympics, the New Way Ministries, the Baby Supply Drive, SonLight Church's holiday free dinner, Boys and Girls Club auction, highway clean up and the public school mentoring program.

The noon Kiwanians are especially known for their gifts of holiday poinsettias to appreciative seniors in our community and for the holiday decor at the Lynden Public Library. Perhaps our biggest effort was our work for the Million Smiles play equipment at the Lynden Public Park.

We are also known for our youth scholarship programs. Each year a group of students who graduate from various high schools in our area receive scholarships to assist with further education.

In the 1990's the club began welcoming women as participants and by early 2000 ceased the singing of folk music and dropped some of the small rituals such as awarding persons for perfect attendance. Today our meetings focus on coordinating of service projects and quality, informative programs from Whatcom County Business people, Service organizations and local political people.
