Club History

The Kiwanis Club of Sheraden was chartered in 1951 with a strong membership count of 50 members. The community was a thriving with productive middle class blue-collared workers whose strong work ethic and sense of community made Sheraden a wonderful place to live. Over the years, the community’s socio-economic structure has changed, the number of small businesses has dwindled and active church membership is on the decline.

Through these 66 years, the Kiwanis club of Sheraden has maintained its interest in the community and its children. Other community groups have come to depend on the club for support is sparking involvement of the community in projects and social activities. Since 2005, the club has experienced a revitalization of membership, expanded their yearly projects and is always looking for new ways to reach out to the children in the community.
