Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell
The Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell (KCHR) was organized on August 7, 1980 after the old Kiwanis Club of Roswell was reorganized following many years of service. On July 28, 1986, the Kiwanis Club of Sweat Mountain merged with the Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell. Roswell's Past-Mayor Jere Wood, is one of the original charter members. Historic Roswell Kiwanian Ron Jackson served as the 81st District Governor for Georgia Kiwanis in 1999-2000. The Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell is one of 175 clubs in Georgia and its members are among 9,000 Georgia Kiwanians.
Our club is composed of members who are active or retired business, professional, educational and political leaders in the Roswell area. Historic Roswell Kiwanis sponsors or has sponsored the Key Clubs of Roswell High School, Centennial High School, Milton High School & Alpharetta High School. Historic Roswell Kiwanis sponsored the Key Club of Alpharetta High School for many years; sponsorship was transferred to the Alpharetta Kiwanis Club when that club was built by Historic Roswell Kiwanis. Historic Roswell Kiwanis has co-sponsored the Kiwanis Club of Doraville-Tucker, Alpharetta-Milton, and Brookhaven Chamblee. The club also sponsors the Builders Club of Crabapple Middle School. In 2011, Historic Roswell Kiwanis founded the Kiwanis Aktion Club of Roswell, a club for adults with developmental disabilities.
The Kiwanians of Historic Roswell work together to achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. Our focus is to make Roswell a better place to live, and to serve the children in our community and of the world.
