Organizations Volunteer Opportunities
The first president of the Cheyenne Kiwanis Club was William Bradford Ross, an attorney, who would be elected Governor of the State of Wyoming within a year from the club's charter date.
Cheyenne 's new service organization lost no time in undertaking challenges in the arena of community services. On July 1, 1922 , only four months after its official chartering, the Kiwanis Club raised $195.00 to begin the development of Kiwanis Park . A committee for the maintenance of Kiwanis Beach in that park survived until 1942. The stone beach house, built by the club at a cost of $1000, still stands to the north of Kiwanis Lake at the ninth green in Cheyenne 's Municipal Golf course. Since 1988, Kiwanis volunteers have continued to serve in the city park, volunteering for the annual spring cleanup of the shores of Sloan's Lake.
The Cheyenne Kiwanis Club meets every Thursday at the Radisson Hotel from 12-1 p.m. Members generally arrive around 11:45 a.m. to get seated. Prospective members are welcome; please e-mail John Barnes, administrative secretary, at email@example.com.
