TopNorthville Kiwanis Club

Kiwanis LogoKIWANIS was created for men and women who feel they must live for more than themselves alone. It is an outlet for service that enriches the lives of its members and brings the realization that existence can never be worthwhile until it is shared with others through acts of service.

The primary purpose of the Kiwanis Club of Northville is to improve the quality of life for children and families worldwide by adhering to the Objects of Kiwanis International, which are:

  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through this club, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build a better community.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.

Join Us

If you are interested in serving the Northville community, and having fun at the same time, then please consider learning more about the Kiwanis Club of Northville and joining us. The word “Kiwanis” comes from the native tongue, and means “we have fun” or “we make noise.” Kiwanis members have fun, form enduring friendships, render altruistic service, and build better communities. We do this at our Wednesday luncheon meetings, during committee meetings, and volunteering for many other activities.

We very much welcome your interest in Kiwanis. To learn more, please contact our Club President, Dan Ferrara, at
