The Ohio District will be celebrating its 100th Birthday at the 2018 District Convention in August. The convention will take place from August 10-12, 2018 at the Park Inn Toledo, 101 North Summit Street, Toledo, Ohio and the SeaGate Convention Centre, 401 Jefferson Avenue, Toledo, Oho. The convention committee under the leadership of Past Governor Tom Crawford and Colleen Carpenter, of the West Toledo Kiwanis Club, is busy planning a fun and affordable convention experience for all Ohio Kiwanis members.

On Friday evening the Kiwanis Club of Toledo will be hosting a cookout for all attendees. The admission for the cookout and the concert with KC and the Sunshine Band (immediately following the cookout) is $10.00 plus a small bag of non-perishable food items that will be donated to local food banks in the name of the First Family Project of Ohio District Kiwanis. 

The Ohio District was formed at its first convention in September of 1918 in Cleveland. On Saturday evening we will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Ohio District of Kiwanis. The ten clubs who were active in Ohio in 1918 will be recognized at the Saturday Banquet.
