Our History

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.
