Aktion Club

Everybody wants a place to belong.  Aktion Club can be that place, where people get together with friends, learn new skills and provide important service to the community.  Aktion Club of Allen County is a Kiwanis sponsored club, supported by the Allen County Board of DD. It’s for adults in Allen County of all abilities, who have a desire to engage in community service. The first club was established by Kiwanis in 1987 in Florida.
