Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.


“To offer service and leadership opportunities to those who desire to serve the needs of children, youth and adults in our local community.”


  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
  • To develop by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic services, and to build better communities.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism, which makes possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.


We meet each Tuesday (except for the final Tuesday of the month) at 12:00 p.m. in the fellowship hall at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church
10 N. Liberty Street (corner of Merrimon Ave. and East Chestnut St.) in Asheville.

12:00 to 1:00pm: Lunch, meet guests, announcements, reports, “happy pig,” etc.
