Serving the Children of Hopkinsville Since 1922.


The Kiwanis Club of Hopkinsville was organized on December 6, 1921.  On the evening of January 24, 1922, the charter was presented at Hotel Latham in Hopkinsville.  The original roster was composed of fifty-six men, the cream of the business and agriculture community.

Now in its 97th year, the Hopkinsville club is the fifth oldest club in Kentucky. Community leaders continue those first traditions, carrying on the mission of Kiwanis today.  Improving the world, one child and one community at a time.
