Our Club's Mission
"Serving the Children of the World"
Old motto: "We Build"
The Denton Breakfast Kiwanis (DBK) Club spun off from the Denton Noon Club in 1960 to provide a more convenient meeting time for our early rising members. The Club consistently holds its membership at between 40 and 50 members--permitting us to be more personal and flexible than some larger clubs, yet still capable of significant service initiatives. Our two signature projects are: 1) IFM Back-to-School Project (a.k.a., Apple Tree Project); and 2) DB-Kiwanis Tiny Libraries Project. The Objects of Kiwanis may be read here.
DBK is part of Kiwanis International, which was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan. With headquarters now in Indianapolis, Kiwanis International has more than 300,000 members in 8,600 clubs in 92 countries. We make our mark by responding to the needs of our communities and pooling our resources to address or eliminate worldwide diseases, such as Maternal & Neo-Natal Tetanus (MNT) & Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) (video). You are never far from a fellow Kiwanian and you are always welcome to attend any Kiwanis Club meeting on the planet (See: Kiwanis International)
