About Foothills Kiwanis
We meet every Monday* from 7-8 a.m. at The Brewing Market, 2770 Dagny Way,
Lafayette, CO 80026.
[More meeting details and other info available by email: FoothillsKiwanis@gmail.com]
[* except Memorial Day, or when Christmas Day is Monday]
Regular weekly attendance is of course encouraged, but there are many opportunities to make up a missed meeting. Kiwanis has no strict attendance requirements since it is recognized that club members will have an occasional scheduling conflict which prevents meeting attendance.
Quarterly dues are $166.25, which includes a delicious Coal Creek breakfast each week, a contribution to our service fund, and both International and District Kiwanis dues. There are generally no assessments in Kiwanis. Any dues increases must be voted upon by the entire membership of the club.
Foothills Kiwanis Club is a member of Division 11 of the Rocky Mountain Kiwanis District.
If you're an area resident who is interested in helping the community, you are cordially invited to join us for our weekly breakfast meetings Monday mornings. Just click email us at email@example.com to arrange for your first visit. There's no obligation to you, and the breakfast is on us.

Kiwanis is a worldwide service organization for men and women desiring personal involvement in the leadership and improvement of their communities. As a group, we can achieve what individuals cannot do alone. Our motto and the cornerstone of Kiwanis is "Serving the Children of the World."
Kiwanis was founded in Detroit, Michigan, on January 21, 1915. Its purpose was the mutual exchange of preferred treatment in professional and business dealings. Within a year, the name had been changed to "Kiwanis," taken from an Indian term "Nun Keewanis," which roughly translates as "Self Expression." The purpose of the organization became community service, a purpose from which Kiwanis has never deviated. In 1916, Kiwanis entered Canada, becoming international. In 1961, the first Kiwanis club in Europe was established in Vienna. International extension has continued and today Kiwanis serves the needs of 77 countries around the world with over 326,000 members.
