A tribute to Veterans written by Bend Kiwanian and well known Cowboy Poet, Ted Lyster:
“…They raised their hand
And said “I swear…”
Regardless of the risk they bear..
…Each can add “Veteran to their name!!”

The Bend Kiwanis Club has a long and rich history of serving the Bend Community. At a May 1924 gathering at the former Pilot Butte Inn, the first meeting of the Bend Kiwanis Club was held. Bend Kiwanis Club was the first service club in our community. Our Club’s motto is “Making a Difference”, and has been embraced by our members from our inception.
Some of these projects from the beginning of Bend Kiwanis Club have continued to present day, such as, the support of 4H and FFA programs and the purchasing of land for parks, park development and providing play structures in parks. Other long standing projects have been support of the Boy and Girl Scout programs, college scholarships and providing resources, manpower and equipment to non-profit organizations.
The Bend Kiwanis Club members have donated services to:
Red Cross – Bend Christmas Parade – Neighborhood Impact
July 4th Pet Parade and Games In The Park – United Way Days of Caring
Central Oregon’s Got Talent
ODOT Road Clean-up – Ronald McDonald House
If you are interested in getting involved please contact us and submit your contact information. Thank you we look forward to reaching out to new members and continuing to serve the community.
