Our roots


Originally our club’s name was the Kiwanis Club of Stroudsburg-Daybreak. However in 1994, it was changed to the Kiwanis Club of The Poconos-Daybreak. Our club was established in March 1976. Alan B. Karpe was president and Bill (William) E. Yost was secretary. It started with 23 members and met every Wednesday, 7:30 a.m. at the Penn Stroud Hilton. The club’s charter night was held on May 22, 1976. During this year there were 131 new clubs chartered making a total of 6,717 clubs. Our club was the seventh in 1975-1976.


In a world of continued uncertainty, one thing was absolute: This year, members and clubs found creative ways to ensure children stayed healthy, inspired and ready to learn.Here are just a few of the brightest Kiwanis moments of 2021: https://bit.ly/30Sc0ND

We develop resources that transform the goodwill and vision of Kiwanians into programs that serve the children of our community. We focus on issues Kiwanians care about, particularly in the areas of education and literacy, health and nutrition, and youth leadership development — as well as our efforts to fight maternal and neonatal tetanus and iodine deficiency disorders.
