Serving the Children of the World


President's Greeting

Dear Community Members:

Welcome to the website of the Kiwanis Club of Carmichael. I hope that the information here will inspire you to become a member of this remarkable organization. Our club is part of Kiwanis International which is a worldwide organization with over 650,000 members in over 80 nations. Each year we globally provide over 18.5 million hours of service to our communities and raise over $100,000,000 in funds to support projects and programs for children and families.   Our motto is “Serving the Children of the World” and our hope is that one day every child will wake up in a community that believes in them, nurtures them and supports them to thrive.

If you are interested in providing “hands-on” service to the community or just want to make a difference in the lives of others, we have over three dozen programs and projects that we support yearly.  We invite you to join us at our weekly meetings to find out more about these volunteer opportunities.  We meet every Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m. at the Elks Lodge located at 5631 Cypress Avenue in Carmichael.  We offer a buffet breakfast and feature interesting speakers but most importantly, the meeting will provide an opportunity to meet the caring and dedicated members of our club.

It has been said the “Service to others is the rent that we pay for our room here on earth”.  If you are interested in giving back to your community, we will provide the opportunity to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities.  You may contact our membership chair, Len Ohlendorf,  for more information about joining  the club at

We hope that you will consider becoming part of the Kiwanis Club of Carmichael.  Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the children and families in the Carmichael community.
