The Sierra Madre Kiwanis History Demonstrates our Commitment to the Greater Sierra Madre Community

The Sierra Madre Kiwanis History features almost 100 years (at the moment 90 years) of service to the communities each club services. The name “Kiwanis” was coined from an American Indian expression that means “we trade” or “we share our talents.”
