Kiwanis of Saugerties
In all, more than 600,000 members in more than 75 countries are “Serving the Children of the World” through their involvement in the Kiwanis family. Kiwanis is a thriving body of dynamic, service-minded individuals of all ages. The name was coined from an expression of the American Indians in what is now the Detroit area. In the Otchipew language, the expression “Nunc Kee-wanis” meant broadly: “we trade” or “we share our talents”.
Kiwanis is a very successful and active club in Saugerties. In addition to the annual Hudson Valley Garlic Festival, the Kiwanis Club of Saugerties sponsors, plans and puts on the July 4th celebration (parade and fireworks) that Saugerties has become renowned for, along with other events .
Thanks to funds from these events, worthwhile events can be funded and contributions can be made to deserving groups and efforts such as the Kiwanis Club Ice Arena, Saugerties High School student scholarships, the Saugerties Mum Festival, the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts, the Boy’s and Girl’s Clubs, Saugerties Area Council of Churches, the Key Club, the Builders Club, the American Cancer Society, the American Legion, the Blue Kats, Children’s Annex, Diaz Ambulance, the Woodstock School of Art, the Saugerties Christmas tree lighting, and the “Coats for Kids” program.
