Please accept our invitation to join a vibrant, involved group that also just happens to have a lot of fun!

The Marshalltown club (also known informally as the Noon” Kiwanis Club or the Nooners) was the first Kiwanis club formed in our community. Members meet at 12 noon Tuesdays at the American Legion, 1301 S. 6th St. We invite you to visit!
