a bit about us

The Kiwanis Club of Barrie!

Who Are We

We are a very, very active group of men and women who volunteer our time, talent and finances to achieve the overall Objects of Kiwanis International by involving ourselves in the needs of the community, especially those of our children.

Mission Statement of Kiwanis

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one Child and one Community at a time.

Objects of Kiwanis

To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life.

To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human endeavours.

To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.

To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.

To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.

To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and good will.
