Serving the Children of the World
When members join the club they accept as part of their membership the obligation to participate in the fund-raising and service projects and other activities of the club, all of which benefit the community.
Members may participate in a variety of ways:
Members pay international and district dues of $92 per year and $16.00 per month in club dues. Hot meals cost members $21.50 per weekly luncheon meeting that they attend at the Colonial Williamsburg Lodge.
The Club Satellite was started as a way for anyone that has limited time for meetings but has a drive to serve the community in their free time. The Club Satellite meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6pm at various Williamsburg locations. No food purchase is required. Club Satellite members pay international and district dues of $92 per year and $16.00 per month in club dues. Club Satellite members are welcome to attend weekly luncheon meetings and will pay $21.50 per meal when they choose to attend.
Prospective members are required to have a Sponsor, a current member who introduces you to Kiwanis, guides you through the member application and approval process, and mentors you until you are fully engaged in club activities, and Community Services.
Prospective members may visit the club up to three times at no cost. After the third visit, if the prospective member wishes to apply for membership, requests a membership application from your Sponsor and submits it to the Membership Committee Chair for approval by the Membership Committee and the Board of Directors. Before prospective members are invited to join Kiwanis you will be informed of the rewards and obligations of membership.
If you are interested in membership in the Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg, please email us.
To change the world one child and one community at a time, beginning right here in Williamsburg.
There are three clubs locally, Colonial Capital Kiwanis Club, Toano Kiwanis Club and our club, the Williamsburg Kiwanis Club.
Over the 30 years we have raised $500,000 to help the community. All of this money goes to charities.
Avalon, Bacon Street, CDR, Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, Head Start, Youth Athletics, Dream Catchers, Autistic Children, ARC, Olde Towne Medical Center, Rita Welsh Adult Program, Salvation Army, and many, many more.
A willingness to be part of a team, to help others, and a desire to make your little spot on this earth as good as it can possibly be.
