The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield was chartered in 1961 and has been committed to the youth of Fairfield ever since. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Our service projects most often focus on the needs of children including pediatric trauma, safety, child care, early development, infant health, nutrition, and parenting skills. Service projects also address other needs within our community, such as working to stop substance abuse, helping the elderly, promoting literacy, supporting youth sports and recreation. Kiwanis also plays a special role in developing future generations of leaders. K-Kids clubs at the elementary school level, Builders Clubs in middle school and junior highs, Key Clubs in high schools, and Circle K clubs at the collegiate level all are Kiwanis organizations that teach community service and leadership skills to young people. Membership is open to local civic minded professionals, business people, and residents that want to make a positive impact on the children of our community.

Santa's Visit, November 24, 2012
Due to Sandy, all our cooking equipment and supplies were destroyed.  We were hoping to borrow a grille, but we ran out of time in our effort to get restocked.  We would like to apologize to the Chamber of Commerce, the Town and the Kids, for not being able to provide our famous grilled goodies, and hope everyone understands our situation.  We hope to see everyone at next year's Santa's visit.
