The September Division 16 Newsletter is now available.
Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Wooster, Ohio. If service to others, particularly young people, is important to you, then you've come to the right place! Our primary objective is a commitment to make children priority one, which means that all of our efforts are directed at improving the lives of young people in the community. We do this through a variety of programs and partnerships, including Safety Town, a week-long event that teaches children all about safety, both in and out of the home. We also help provide funding and labor for projects and programs in the community that help and support children.
We would love for you to join our club so that together we can deliver more service to the children, youth, and families of Wooster. Our meetings are every Tuesday at noon at Memories Conference Center and guests are always welcome. We can also be contacted by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at (330) 439-2093, or followed on Twitter at woosterkiwanis

ELIMINATE...Kiwanis International Takes on Tetanus
Kiwanis International and UNICEF have partnered to eradicate maternal and neonatal tetanus from the planet. This initiative is called the ELIMINATE project and sets as its financial goal the raising of $110 million by 2015. The Wooster Kiwanis club has already made financial contributions toward this goal and looks forward to working with our international organization to eradicate this disease worldwide. The following video provides more information about maternal and neonatal tetanus and the ELIMINATE project from Alan Penn, Kiwanis International President (and member of the Medina Ohio Breakfast Club).
