A Club History by Shirley Tomblin

The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa has a very rich history and I will attempt to outline just a few of the many projects undertaken over the years.

The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa was formed in 1917 In late 1916 Kiwanis became International when the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton was formed, followed by the Kiwanis Club of Toronto in March, 1917 and the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa on Dec. 22nd, 1917. That's when a group of Ottawa business leaders met at the home of furniture dealer Alex Thurston to organize a local chapter of Kiwanis International.
