Kiwanis - Serving the Children of the World
Serving the Children of the World

Welcome to the Placerville Kiwanis Website!

Since our club was chartered in April 1956, the Placerville Kiwanis Club has been an active part of the local community.  We are a growing club with over 50 members, we support three high school Key Clubs (Ponderosa, Union Mine and El Dorado High Schools), the Markham Middle School Builders Club and the AKTION Club of El Dorado County for people living with a disability.

Our members volunteer over 3000 hours each year to Projects in the community.

We raise money in the community through our annual "Phantom" Pasta Feed, Art & Wine Festival, and the Studebaker Wheelbarrow Race.   Proceeds from these fund raisers go to support our Scholarship Program at the three local high schools and the ROP Culinary Program. We also support a variety of important community nonprofit organizations.  Our activities include the Academic Decathlon, the Easter Egg Hunt, the City of Placerville's Fishing Derby, and many more.

A regional project that we support is the Kiwanis Family House which provides lodging for families with a family member being treated at UC Davis Medical Center.  

The Placer Kiwanis Club meets every Wednesday at noon at the Smith Flat House, 2021 Smith Flat Rd, Placerville, Ca 95667.  Meetings adjourn at 1:30pm. 

Guests are always welcome!
