Our History

The Kiwanis Club of Bellevue-Offutt was chartered October 25, 1967, with 26 members. The club was dedicated to serving the Bellevue and Offutt Air Force Base communities with voluntary services and support and to provide a forum of fellowship for its civilian and military members. Our current emphasis is to serve the youth of our community in accordance with the overall goals of Kiwanis.

One of our members, Jane Erickson, has served as President of the Kiwanis International Foundation and is currently President of Kiwanis International.
