The Cedar Falls Kiwanis Club has made a difference in the Cedar Valley for nearly 7 decades. (It preceded our Kiwanis Rough Risers club.)
Beginningin post-WWII years (1947), the Cedar Falls Kiwanis Club served the community under the motto of "Serving Youth and Community." Their service ranged from selling peanuts, apples and waffles to buying equipment for Boy Scout organizations, books and supplies for schools and planting trees in Cedar Falls parks. Unfortunately, this club had to close its doors in December of 2012. Norm Lemmon wanted to document the good that his club did for the Cedar Valley so he created the historical list of Fund Raising Events and Projects that they accomplished. Peruse this 7-page timeline and revel in admiration for a service club that made a difference in Iowa. It spans their complete history from 1951 - 2012.
