Today is Wednesday, April 16, 2014Division 3 began with 12 Kiwanis clubs in the south side of Chicago and the southwest suburbs its current membership of 7 clubs include Archer Road Kiwanis, Beverly Golden K, Hyde Park Kiwanis, Southeast Kiwanis and Southwest Kiwanis serving communities in Chicago, and Hickory Hills Kiwanis and Oak Lawn Kiwanis serving communities in the southwest suburbs. Division 3 Kiwanis members are working with Division 1 Kiwanis members on the north side of Chicago and the northwest suburbs to try and build more Kiwanis clubs in Chicago to bring programs and service to the children and the communities not currently served by Kiwanis clubs. Over the years, the clubs have held many fundraisers, including pancake breakfasts, a fashion show, Peanut Day, the Kiwanis Showcase of Talent, and other events. We help out in the community in a variety of ways, including sponsoring youth groups, highway clean-ups, raising money to benefit children and children’s support groups, and providing scholarships. The Division has enjoyed a rich history over the years, with its members coming from fields like accounting, civil service, education, management, and many more.
