"We have been working hard with our outside providers to provide some amazing virtual programs and we are really excited with the programs we will be offering this summer."

Newnan Kiwanis Club
Each year, Kiwanis International spends over 12 million man hours and over $107 million dollars in over 150,000 service projects worldwide. Locally, we spend thousands of man hours each year and return over $175,000 per year to our community. By far, the majority of our local funds come from our sponsorship each year, since 1947, of the Coweta County Fair. Each of our members contributes a minimum of 30 hours during September/October, providing our community with a good time, clean entertainment and education on a variety of subjects.
