Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.  We want to improve quality of life by fostering children’s health, academic success and dreams for the future.

The Byron Club was founded in 1988 and Service is at the heart of every member…men and women, united in our commitment and compassion for others.

To Learn More, please email us at: , call/text Michelle Albert at 815-985-5102, or Join us at a meeting, hosted the 3rd Tuesday of every month (except December, please check calendar) at Leombruni’s Italian Restaurant in Byron, IL (110 W. 2nd Street).

A Family of Servant Leaders: Byron Kiwanis sponsors “Builders Club” at Byron Middle School and “Key Club” at Byron High School.  We also collaborate with other area service organizations and businesses…because together we reach more people and have a greater impact on our community.

Fellowship and Fun: Kiwanis members don’t just do service – they have Fun.  Members make new friends by being part of a club where they attend meetings and participate in social events that fit your life-style and schedule. Kiwanis clubs also provide excellent networking opportunities for professionals.

Our Kiwanis Pledge:  As our country’s flag signifies purity, valor and justice, may we as true Kiwanians exemplify these virtues as we serve the children of the world.
