Since 1938, the Canby Kiwanis Club has been offering a helping hand in our local area and in the world. We subscribe wholeheartedly to the Kiwanis International motto: “Serving the Children of the World.” Most of our volunteer and fundraising activities are directed to activities that help young people.

In 2013 our Canby club celebrated its 75th anniversary with a variety of special events and projects. Kiwanis International celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2015, and the Canby club is marking that milestone through the year with special events and projects.

We seek new members from all walks of life who share our commitment to volunteerism, community improvement and good fellowship. Please attend one of our luncheon meetings if you would like to learn more. Our regular meetings are Mondays from noon to 1 p.m. in the Town Hall room above the Thriftway Supermarket on Northeast Second Avenue.

Our major volunteer activities each year are our Food & Toy Drive in December and the Kiddie Kapers Parade which opens the Clackamas County Fair in August. But we also provide support and sponsorship to a wide variety of other projects.

If you would like to help the children of our community, please take a look at what we do under the About Us section. We would like you to be part of our strong community organization.

Canby Kiwanis has sponsored and organized the Kiddie Kapers Parade, the opening event of the Clackamas County Fair, since 1948. Shown here are the Grand Marshals of the 2013 parade: scouts and leaders from Troop 258, which Canby Kiwanis has sponsored since 1939.
