It was a cold and wet Saturday morning but the Northern Columbus Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt was a rousing success! The kids had a great time hunting for those not-so-well-hidden colorful eggs. In less than 5 minutes all the eggs were safely nestled in their Easter baskets. We were thrilled to see the smiles on the kids’ faces. They were so excited! And so was the Easter Bunny!

The Kiwanis Club of Northern Columbus, also known as Northern Columbus Kiwanis, was founded in 1928 and is one of thousands of Kiwanis clubs throughout the world. We are women and men of all ages, occupations, backgrounds and interests, serving the Clintonville and Beechwold neighborhoods of Columbus, Worthington and beyond. We are dedicated to making our community and the world a better place for our children through our involvement in unique service projects.

There are more than 550,000 members in the Kiwanis family from children in K-Kids, to high school students in Key Club, to adults in Kiwanis, in 80 countries and geographic areas. Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children, such as fighting hunger and improving literacy. Kiwanis clubs host nearly 150,000 service projects throughout the world each year.
