We are one of over 8,000 Kiwanis clubs worldwide, with the unified mission of serving the children of the world. Our club, Las Cruces Kiwanis, has been working at this mission since the 1920s.  We welcome participation in our activities and membership in our club.  You can find us at regular monthly meetings, the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month, at Good Samaritan Villages Social Center, Aztec Room. Please check our Upcoming Events page for more information on events.  

The universal goals of Kiwanis are:

  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.
