About Us


Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. The name Kiwanis  means 'we trade' or "we share our talents" and is derived from a Native American expression ;  Nunc Kee-wanis.

The Kiwanis Club of Madisonville supports the children and young adults of Monroe County and the world. Read below to see our activities and determine how you can help the children of our area and the world. 

We meet every Tuesday at 12 noon for food, fellowship and fun. Location is upstairs at Donna's Old Town Cafe, 100 College Street, Madisonville. Visitors are always welcome. See below for a link to their website which includes directions to the cafe.
