The Wilmington Kiwanis Club met July 16 at the Wilmington Presbyterian Church to celebrate 100 Years of Kiwanis International.
Organized in 1915 in Detroit, Kiwanis has grown into an international organization serving the needs of children worldwide. The most recent international focus for children has been the joint effort with UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.
At the celebration dinner, Wilmington Mayor Randy Riley presented a proclamation to the club recognizing their efforts and service projects. Seven members were recognized with Legion of Honor certificates for more than 30 years of service.
