Kiwanis: Always building

Join the conversation for

kids & community!


Our Marshalltown Kiwanis Club has various activities throughout the year to raise money for projects benefiting our community and its children. We encourage you to help us in those efforts by supporting our events, including Pancake Day and Peanut Day, and other fundraisers like the Stop Hunger Red Barrel Campaign and gumball sales.

In addition to being fund-raisers, these are activities for everyone to take some time and enjoy. We also encourage you to join in as a volunteer to find out more about Kiwanis.

Thank you for helping us help our community and its people. Please consider joining us as a Kiwanis member. If you have any ideas or suggestions we are just a mouse click away!

How you can save a life right now


You can help Kiwanis raise $110 million by 2015 to EliMiNaTe Maternal-Neonatal Tetanus from the face of the earth. One series of three shots costs just $1.80 to prevent tetanus from killing the mother and her unborn child.


If youd like more information, visit the Kiwanis/UNICEF EliMiNaTe Project website here. Your donations to the Kiwanis International Foundation are tax deductible.


Thank you for your thoughtful consideration in working to stop this killer disease.

Building a better world

New date for Pancake Day: Sept. 24 with Oktemberfest


We are excited to be pairing with Oktemberfest for a new Pancake Day adventure in 2016. We are staying at the Coliseum, but moving to Saturday, Sept. 24.

Our 61st annual Kiwanis Pancake Day will be held on the Saturday morning during Oktemberfest, September 24. Oktemberfest normally held a pancake breakfast, but it used an out-of-town company to operate the event.

Our Pancake Day the following month was sometimes confused for that breakfast, although we often had people tell us we had better pancakes ;) Oktemberfest approached us last year about the possibility of holding our Pancake Day during Oktemberfest. We think its a WIN/WIN for everyone. The profits all stay locally, we are still at the Coliseum, and we have our local supporters and hopefully get some new people to give us a try. Stay tuned for more information!
