Kiwanis Club of Harker Heights
The name” Kiwanis” is taken from an American Indian term, “Nunc Kee-wanis” which roughly means “we trade”,” we share our talents” & ” we have a good time.” The Kiwanis Club of Harker Heights was chartered in March of 1971 to Division 23 of the Texas/Oklahoma District. Our current membership is made up of 35 men and women who are dedicated to improving the lives of children in our Central Texas communities. We encourage visitors to our weekly meetings and community members are invited to apply for membership. Our club enjoys a variety of activities for friendship and fellowship in a Christian environment. There are opportunities to go to International Conventions and seminars to train with other Kiwanis clubs. Inter-club meetings with other District 23 clubs provide a means to share ideas and make contacts within our communities.
The 2012 Texas/Oklahoma Convention, Aug 8-12 was hosted by our central Texas clubs at the Killeen Civic & Conference Center with a golf tournament at Ft Hood.
Our club supports a large variety of children’s charities and programs: $1,000 scholarships to Harker Heights High School seniors, Children’s Miracle Network, Ronald McDonald House, Santa Pal, Peaceable Kingdom, WinShape Camps, local food banks, Builders Club projects, Christmas & Easter fruit baskets, and Kiwanis International Programs: IDD (iodine deficiency disorders) and Eliminate (neonatal tetanus).
