What We Do

Ax Throwing Social at Throw Nation: No one lost any fingers or toes and we had a wonderful time. Pictured members of various Kiwanis Clubs and OSU Circle K.

In place of a regular meeting, we learned a new skill – ax throwing- and thankfully, no lost a finger or toe. Pictured members from various Kiwanis Clubs and the OSU Circle K Club.

OSU Circle K

The Circle K at the Ohio State University is our club’s greatest achievement. The Circle K Club was chartered in 1957, just two years after our Kiwanis Club was formed, and has maintained its charter since then. The club has ebbed and flowed in membership from the lean days of 15 or so to the soaring days of over 100 members. No matter its size, this club always continues to provide sound service, fellowship, and leadership for the campus and students. Visit for more information about the OSU Circle K Club.

Panera Bread Distribution to Neighborhood Service Inc Food Pantry

Weekly our Kiwanis Club picks up the leftover bread from the Panera Bread on Fishinger Rd, Hilliard and repacks it. Thursday morning the bread is dropped off at Neighborhood Services Inc. (NSI) on 4th St. This local food pantry distributes this and many other items to neighbors in the OSU community.

Rick Nini Pancake Breakfast

Twice annually, the club hosts a community pancake breakfast with all-you-care-to-eat plain, blueberry, chocolate, and pumpkin (fall only) pancakes. The breakfast is held from 8:30a-1:30p on a Sunday in the Spring and again in the Fall. Visit our website for dates and ticket information.

David A Thompson Memorial Golf Outing
