Frequent Activities:
After Hours
Life is more than just community service, and club members regularly kick back and enjoy some camaraderie. It might be a Halloween party or just a happy hour at a local pub.

Community Meals
Four or more times a year, our club members purchase and prepare dinner for anyone in the community who needs a hot meal.

Flag Service
Our Kiwanis club displays American flags on all patriotic holidays as a service to local downtown Issaquah businesses.

Whether it’s Virtual Bingo or the sale of See’s Candies and car wash tickets, we work to raise funds in support of local non-profits who meet our mission of support for local children and families.

Four or more Kiwanians attend a meeting of another area Kiwanis Club to share ideas for community service.
