Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
Kiwanians participate in projects and fund raisers that provide assistance to local charities, hospitals, schools, shelters, other community organizations, and individuals.
What is Kiwanis?
Here is a quick video that explains what Kiwanis is.

Time for a Hixson?
Be a part of the Hixson tradition. As Kiwanis International’s first president, George F. Hixson paved the way for the leaders who would follow. In 1983, the Kiwanis International Foundation honored his inaugural presidency—and more than 50 years of Kiwanis service—by establishing the George F. Hixson Fellowship. As a way of recognizing people who have contributed significantly to Kiwanis’ history of generosity, the George F. Hixson Fellowship is bestowed upon donors who give $1,000 or more to our foundation. With your one-time gift or two-year pledge, you support the Kiwanis Children’s Fund—helping fund grants to Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs as well as Kiwanis clubs, districts and district foundations.
Become a George F. Hixson Fellow by making a gift today. Or give in honor of another—recognizing someone’s special commitment with a Hixson Fellowship in their name. If you plan to proudly wear your Hixson Fellowship recognition during a Kiwanis convention or event, please make your gift and request recognition six weeks in advance. This will ensure time for processing and shipping. And remember:
If all of your club members are Hixson Fellows, you can apply to be a George F. Hixson Fellow Club!

Welcome to the new MO-ARK Website. This a bit of an overview. The information is all the same but the presentation is different with a broad screen device like a laptop or desk top and a narrow screen device like a smartphone. My comments compare my desktop experience with my Amazon Fire 7.
Both have links at the very top to the MO-ARK Facebook page and KI’s Instagram page.
Broad screen has the main menu horizontally across the top of the screen. We have nine main topics with additional pages listed alphabetically below them. A powerful search box that lets you search the text on all 90 pages.
The main screen is in two columns with text on the left and the top postings on the MO-ARK Facebook page on the right. Below that is an alphabetical list of all 90 pages by title.
Narrow Screen has the Facebook and Instragram links at the top. Click the small white button on the upper right to see the menu. It presents the text as a single column followed by the search box, Facebook posts and then the alphabetical list at the bottom.
We have retained the News column as one of the pages at the top.
I think you will find them both informative but note the broad screen has a bit more umph.
It’s been fun and challenging putting the website together. If you spot any errors or dead links, etc, please pass them along. Suggestions for improvements are welcome.
