The Kiwanis Club of Westminster has been involved in the community since 1932 specifically supporting children and developing tomorrow’s leaders. The prime example is Key Club Sponsorship for more than seventy years in county high schools. Kiwanis also sponsors scholarships to county high school graduates. Historically Kiwanis members have been instrumental in supporting major community projects such as establishing Carroll County General Hospital (now Carroll Hospital Center), Westminster Fire Department expansion, creation of the Westminster Boys and Girls Club, and support of the Carroll County Public Library.
Currently Kiwanis is supporting a Student of the Month Program in cooperation the Carroll County Public Schools. The club also assists Carroll County Food Sunday and sponsors the Aktion Club of Westminster that allows adults with disabilities to serve the community. Kiwanis continually investigates new ways to address challenges faced by youth of the community. Local citizens are encouraged to investigate membership in Kiwanis and the various ways they can contribute their time and talents in developing tomorrow’s leaders.
