    Metro TALK: Local Events

    Metro TALK
    A community service of the
    Greater Orange Communities Organization

    The Orange Kiwanis Chapter will be hosting its Special Guest Night for interested possible new members on Tuesday, October 23rd, at the Grand Street Center, Orange from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. Dinner and drinks will be served. In addition to the dinner, the evening includes a cocktail hour and a special presentation by Chapter President and local firefighter Greg Lewin.

    "Kiwanis has been around for over 50 years in Orange," says Mr. Lewin. "We are striving to constantly improve our community through hands on service and hope to build our membership to continue that great tradition. Our society has changed so drastically that it's time to recommit to helping our youth, honor our seniors, and fortify our neighborhoods."

    The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.” It was coined from a Native American expression, “Nunc Kee-wanis”.

    Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. They see no problem as too big or too small and together achieve what individuals cannot do alone.

    Kiwanis International is an organization of service clubs headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana and made up of approximately 8,000 clubs in 96 countries with over 260,000 adult members. Members of Kiwanis place special emphasis on service to children and youth, both through international initiatives intended to improve the quality of life of children around the world, and through their Service Leadership Programs, made up of about 7,000 youth clubs with about 320,000 youth members. While its emphasis is primarily children, Kiwanis also assists senior citizens by delivering meals, working with senior centers, and providing services such as home maintenance.

    For more information or to RSVP, please contact Greg Lewin, Orange Chapter Kiwanis President, at or 714-532-2224.
