Club History

The Kiwanis Club of Lauderdale Lakes was chartered as one of 7,700 clubs in 80 countries in 1998. Our motto is "Serving the Children of the World".

 

  • The idea of forming a Kiwanis club with a Caribbean connection is attributed to 2001 - 2002 Distinguished President Anthony D’Oyley and Leroy Gordon, Distinguished President of the Kiwanis Club of Eastern Kingston and Port Royal, Jamaica. This idea eventually led to a formation meeting in August 1998, attended by eight prospective members. This core group, along with other interested potential members, met weekly, benefiting from the guidance of the late Art Coachman and John Bonvillian, both Past Lt. Governors of Kiwanis Division 23. By September 29, 1998, there were 26 potential members signed up, enabling us to obtain our charter from Kiwanis International.
